Dismissal From Program

A student dismissed from an academic program may transfer into another program before the beginning of the next semester, providing the student is qualified for and accepted by the new program. In the case of immediate transfer into a new program, the student’s departmental file will be forwarded upon acceptance. Otherwise, the following policies will apply:

  • When a student is dismissed from an academic program, the chair or program director of that program will place a statement of explanation in the student’s file detailing conditions under which the student may or may not re-apply to the program. A copy of the student’s dismissal letter will be forwarded to the student's academic advisor and the student will be advised.

If a student is unable to comply with these policies, the student may be dismissed from D'Youville University.
