Matriculation in veterinary school is a privilege, not a right.  Therefore, a student can be dismissed for the following reasons:

  1. Failure to achieve minimum academic standards (as outlined and enforced by the preclinical or clinical promotions committees).
  2. Failure to exhibit the professional and personal attributes required for the practice of veterinary medicine, such as acts of dishonesty, including but not limited to cheating on any assessments (examinations, quizzes, OSCE, online assignments, etc.), falsification of patient records, activity logs, verbal reports , plagiarism or repeated unexcused absences on rotations.   
  3. Violation of MWU and/or CVM policies that have been stipulated to be grounds for dismissal.
  4. Falsification of admission records.
  5. Failure to meet and maintain technical standards.
  6. Conviction of a felony or other criminal offense.
  7. Failure to report a criminal arrest.
