Passing Grade

The minimum passing grade required for Medical Terminology, Anatomy and Physiology I and II, and all Medical (MED) courses is a C (70 percent). Any grade below a C (70 percent) is a failing grade. Therefore, students must receive at least a C (70 percent) in the above-mentioned courses in order to satisfy course requirements for the Medical Assistant program. A failure in the lecture, laboratory, or practicum portion of a MED course will result in a failing grade for the entire course.

Repeating Courses

Students enrolled in the Medical Assistant program who receive a grade of D or below in Medical Terminology, Anatomy and Physiology I and II, and/or any Medical (MED) course must repeat that course in order to progress in the program. The minimum passing grade required for a repeated course is a C.

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

Medical Assistant Competencies

Students enrolled in the Medical Assistant program must pass 100 percent of all program competencies in order to graduate. The minimum passing score for each competency is 85 percent.
