Progression Through the Program
- SLHS graduate students must maintain a minimum cumulative 3.0GPA.
- SLHS graduate students may not earn more than two grades below “B” in SLHS courses. Note that a “B-” average does not satisfy this requirement.
- If a student receives a “C” in a clinical practicum course, he/she must retake the course and receive a “B” or better. Students who receive below a “B” on retaking the course are subject to dismissal from the program.
- A grade of “F” in any clinical practicum course (SLH 516, SLH 616, SLH 517), including the student teaching course (SLH 521), is grounds for immediate dismissal from the program.
- SLHS graduate students are expected to abide by the ASHA Code of Ethics. The SLHS faculty will determine the degree to which a student fulfills these criteria.
- Decisions of the SLHS faculty are final but subject to appeal. Refer to the La Salle University Graduate Catalog and Student Guide to Rights and Responsibilities.
