Academic Progression

Passing Grade

The minimum passing grade required for a surgical technology (SUR) course is a C+ (75 percent). Any grade below a C+ (75 percent) is a failing grade. In addition, the minimum passing grade required for Anatomy and Physiology I and II, Anatomy and Physiology Laboratory I and II, and Microbiology is a C+ (75 percent). Students who enrolled in the Surgical Technology program prior to June 2016 must also achieve a C+ (75 percent) in Pathophysiology.

Repeating a Surgical Technology Course

Surgical Technology students who receive a grade of C or below in any surgical technology (SUR) course must repeat that course. A minimum grade of C+ in the repeated course is required to remain in the program.

Repeating a Science Course

Surgical Technology students who receive a grade of C or below in any of the following science courses must repeat that course: Anatomy and Physiology I, Anatomy and Physiology II, Anatomy and Physiology Laboratory I, Anatomy and Physiology Laboratory II, and Microbiology. Students who enrolled in the Surgical Technology program prior to June 2016 and who receive a grade of C or below in Pathophysiology must repeat that course. A minimum grade of C+ in the repeated course is required to pass the course.

Note that failed courses may lead to additional charges and may also delay graduation.

Automatic Dismissal

Surgical Technology students who receive a grade of C or below in any surgical technology (SUR) course they are repeating will be dismissed automatically from the Surgical Technology program.
