Students who withdraw from the program by giving notification of withdrawal, without an official leave of absence or who have constructively withdrawn, are considered dropped and must be readmitted to the program. If a student chooses to reapply, they must complete all requirements at the time of readmission; including curriculum, tuition, and school policies. Students dismissed for unsatisfactory grades or progress must petition for re-entry into the program. To reinstate financial aid, students must contact the Financial Aid Director.
Students in the tenth quarter of the Acupuncture program or the twelfth quarter of the Oriental Medicine program who do not complete their graduation requirements including all academic and clinical work by the scheduled date of graduation must obtain a written extension of graduation requirements. They then have a maximum of 45 months in Acupuncture or 54 months in Oriental Medicine from their initial date of program enrollment to complete all of their requirements. After this time, they must re-enroll under the latest catalog and are responsible for any changes in academic policies. Students who do not complete their graduation requirements by the scheduled date of graduation and who wish to receive an extension must register each quarter until their requirements are met. If a student is not registered for a class, but is completing work from a previous quarter, they still must register each quarter and pay a graduate extension registration fee.
