Attendance Policy

Attendance is mandatory for every class and clinic shift, and is taken each week. Students must be present for at least 80% of total class time in order to receive credit for a course. If a student misses more than 20% of the class time, the student will fail the course and will have to repeat the course. Three (3) marks of tardiness will count as one (1) absence, student can receive (3) absences due to tardiness, and therefore fail the course. Students with two (2) excused absences for one (1) specific clinic shift may be allowed to perform make-up hours at the discretion of the OMC director. Students with more than two (2) excused absences for one (1) clinic shift will fail, and must repeat the entire clinic shift next quarter.

Mid-curriculum Exam (MCE)

Prior to beginning Level II of the clinical internship, students are required to pass a mid-curriculum exam / MCE (both written and practical) in order to evaluate their progress, skills, and competencies. The passing score for the mid-curriculum exam / MCE (both written and practical) is 70%. Please refer to the exam registration form and consult the OMC manager ( for the exam requirement list. Contact the Academic Department ( regarding exam content and additional procedures.

Comprehensive Graduation Exam (CGE)

Leave of Absence

A leave of absence refers to a specific time period during a student’s course of study when they are not in academic attendance. A student may be granted one Leave of Absence within any 12- month period, not to exceed 180 calendar days. One subsequent Leave of Absence within that same 12-month period can be granted for unforeseen circumstances. If after the extension of one subsequent leave, student fails to enroll in DULA coursework for at least one academic quarter, then the student is considered to be terminated from the program. Leave of Absence requests should be submitted and approved prior to absence. I-20 students may apply for limited leaves of absence if all governmental and university requirements and regulations are complied with. The Program Director, International Student Service (ISS) Officer, and Financial Aid Officer must approve the request. For more information about our Leave of Absence policy, please refer to the program catalog.

Withdrawal from Course

Students who want to withdraw from the current course should submit a request to the program director and registrar. In addition, OMC Manager should also be notified if the student withdraws from their registered clinic shift. A “W (Withdraw)” is given to those students who withdraw from a course after the add/drop period, but before the 7th week of class. No academic penalty is attached to a grade of “W.” “WF (Withdraw-Fail)” is given to those students who withdraw from a course during or after the 7th week. A “WF” grade is computed into the student’s CGPA. For more information about our grading policy, please refer to the program catalog.

Withdrawal from the program

Withdrawal from the program requires the submission of a “Withdrawal” form and an exit interview with the admissions director. If you have received financial aid, you will be required to complete an exit interview with the financial aid director. Following withdrawal from the program, you may still reapply and are required to complete a new application for admission. Upon readmission, after an absence of one year or more, you will be required to complete the program of study that is in place in the term in which you return. All readmission is subject to approval. For more information about Leave of Absence policy, please refer to the program catalog.

Re-admission After Withdrawal

The readmission process after withdrawal from the university is the same as for a new student. Students approved for readmission are responsible for fulfilling the current curriculum requirements at the time of their readmission. If more than five years have elapsed since the last prior enrollment, the Academic Committee will reevaluate the student’s placement and the student may be required to take a placement exam; if this fails, he or she will need to retake the class. Please contact the admissions office ( in order to apply or inquire about readmission.
