Standards


Rehabilitation & Disabilities Standards

The School of Public Health is in compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act by providing reasonable accommodations to students with documented disabilities. Students must register with the Office of Academic Affairs to request disability-related accommodations, and are responsible for providing acceptable documentation of a disability as described in the School of Public Health Student Handbook. Technical standards are also detailed in the Student Handbook (http://publichealth.lsuhsc.edu/pdf/Student_Handbook.pdf).

Academic Standards

Every student must maintain a cumulative GPA (CGPA) of 3.0 or higher to be considered in good standing and permitted to graduate. The Master of Public Health requires a grade of C or higher in all course work. If the student earns a lower grade, the student must repeat the course and achieve a grade of C or higher.

If a student’s CGPA falls below 3.0, he/she will be placed on academic probation. The probationary period is one semester during which time the student must return to good standing by raising his/her CGPA to a 3.0. It is recommended that the student develops a plan with his/her academic advisor to raise their CGPA. If the student does not raise the CGPA, he/she will be subject to dismissal at the discretion of the Program Director and the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. Probationary status is not recorded on a student’s transcript or elsewhere in the student’s permanent academic record.
