2022-23 Graduate Academic Catalog

2022–23 Graduate Academic Catalog Page 29 School of Allied Health Graduation Requirements Academic Appeals A student may appeal academic discipline by submitting a formal notice of appeal by email or a hard copy sent to the Program Director. Academic discipline appeals will be considered on a case-by-case basis by a committee comprised of the MAT Program Director, Clinical Education Coordinator, one additional program faculty member, an objective clinical preceptor, and one second-year MAT student. The appeal process will be completed within 14 days of receipt of the student's appeal. The student will be notified of the final decision in writing by the Program Director, which completes the appeal process. Readmission Any student who is suspended or voluntarily withdraws must apply for readmission to the University and to the program. Students must follow the MAT cycle; therefore readmission will not be effective until the next academic year at the time when the student was suspended or withdrew from the program. Academic Dismissal Academic Dismissal status refers to any student who is disqualified from Cedarville University and is not eligible for readmission. Academic dismissal is a terminal action. Graduation Requirements In addition to general graduation requirements listed in the Academic section of this catalog, students seeking the M.A.T. degree must fulfill the following: • Complete 69–72 semester hours as specified in the program design in good academic standing. • Maintain an overall cumulative grade point average of 3.0. • Complete all requirements for the degree within seven years after matriculation in the program. Intent to Graduate To graduate, whether or not they plan to attend commencement, students must submit an “Intent to Graduate” form and pay any applicable fees. An Intent to Graduate form is available at cedarville.edu/gradintent. After they submit their intent form to the registrar, the student's transcript will be audited to verify completion of degree requirements. Students are encouraged to indicate their intent to graduate at least one semester in advance so that they can be informed of any problems in meeting their degree requirements. Intent to Graduate forms must be received no later than March 15 of the commencement year. After that date, eligibility to participate in commencement will be deferred to the following year. A graduation fee of $100 will be charged to the student's account after their eligibility for graduation is confirmed. Walking in Commencement For M.A.T. students to be recognized in the May commencement, they must have an approved plan for completing the remaining M.A.T. courses by the end of the fall semester of that same academic year.
