Academic Disqualification Support
Academic disqualification occurs when a student fails to meet the standards for academic performance and progress. Students will be academically disqualified from the nursing major when the following occurs:
- Failure to earn a minimum grade of “C” or “S” (clinical) when repeating a nursing course.
- Failure to earn a “C” or “S” (clinical) in two nursing courses.
- Withdrawal from the same nursing course twice.
- Professional/academic misconduct or dishonesty (refer to the University of Memphis Code of Student Rights and Responsibilities).
- Falsification of any academic/medical/nursing records or misrepresentation of nursing care or credentials.
- Clinical practice that places patients in physical or emotional jeopardy after the student is taught otherwise. 7. Failure to adhere to LCON substance abuse policy.
Academically Disqualified Next Steps Support
Academic Advising and Academic Major Exploration Support
Academically disqualified students are encouraged to work closely with the university's academic counseling center (AAC) at firstname.lastname@example.org to develop a plan for completing their degree at the University of Memphis. The university will assist you in exploring degree programs and options. If you were a student enrolled in LCON's Accelerated BSN program (second degree seeking), we understand that the option of seeking this support from the ACC may not be applicable as you were enrolled for the primary purpose of pursuing your BSN degree.
Course Registration Procedures
- LCON Reinstatement Policies- Currently readmission is not permitted following academic
disqualification. LCON administration and faculty are currently working to develop potential reinstatement
and reapplication policies that align with national best practices as well as the
long-term strategic goals of the college. When this process is completed, information
regarding confirmed procedures will be published in our academic handbooks, website,
and shared with recent academically disqualified students via the contact information
listed within our Tiger student account systems. Please ensure your student contact
information is up to date in Navigate.
- Academic Status Letters- We completely understand that some students who have been academically disqualified will seek to attend other institutions or nursing programs. It is a common practice for many nursing programs to request verification documentation to validate any previous academic experience during their admissions consideration process. Although we are unable to provide you with a letter of academic good standing from LCON based upon the recent academic disqualification, we are more than willing to support your potential admission efforts by providing an enrollment verification letter that highlights your time of attendance within our program. To request a program enrollment verification letter, please submit the request via the LCON ScrubHub and a student success team member will follow up with you in a timely manner. Please be sure to indicate in the description box that the letter is needed for verification purposes following academic disqualification.
