Office of Academic Affairs

The Office of Academic Affairs is responsible for the curriculum, academic standards affecting the DDS degree program in the College of Dentistry, and the process of implementation of policies and procedures affecting the academic progress, promotion and graduation of dental students. This office is involved with the faculty in curriculum design and coordination through the College of Dentistry Curriculum Committee.


Student Status Committee

The Student Status Committee is a standing committee of the College of Dentistry. The committee is represented by all academic and clinical departments in the College as well as student representatives from each class. The purpose of the committee is to assess academic progress, professional and personal student conduct and make recommendations to the Dean regarding those assessments. The Dean either accepts the recommendation from the committee, rejects the recommendation from the committee, or modifies the recommendation. The Dean then authorizes the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs to write the students via email concerning final decisions regarding the recommendations of the committee.

Appeals Regarding Academic Decisions

The appeals process for academic decisions made, can be found in the College of Dentistry Bulletin.
