Health Information Technology Progression Policy

  1. Students must achieve a “C or better” on ALL curriculum courses and maintain at least a 2.0 GPA after being accepted into the program. Students failing to meet the required academic status will have the immediate next, one (1), semester to retake the non-compliant course and achieve a satisfactory course(s) grade and/or regain the required 2.0 GPA.
  2. Students who do not achieve a satisfactory grade and/or regain a 2.0 GPA will be dismissed from the program. At that point, the student must follow the Readmission Policy, if desired.
  3. Students who fail to meet the Program Progression Policy by making less than a compliant course grade of a “C or better” on any three (3) curriculum courses required of the HIT program shall in effect constitute usage of the admission and two readmission opportunities, be dismissed from the HIT program, and be required to immediately notify Student Services of a change in their major from the HIT program back to Associate in General Education (AGE) or any other program of study of the student’s choosing that will enable the student to be successful. Should the student fail to follow this policy, the HIT program chair will send a letter to Student Services requesting such action to be taken and the student’s record flagged to block unadvised self-registration.
