University Regulations

For information about university regulations, see Regulations or visit the University of Kansas Policy Library. All students in the School of Health Professions are required to follow and abide by policies stated in the KU School of Health Professions Student Handbook as well as those defined in the handbook of the student’s academic program.

Credit/No Credit

A Credit/No Credit option is available to all degree-seeking undergraduates. You may enroll in one course a semester under the option, if the course is not in your major or minor. For more information, visit the KU Policy Library.

Warning: Certain undesirable consequences may result from exercising the option. Some schools, scholarship committees, and honorary societies do not accept this grading system and convert grades of No Credit to F when computing grade-point averages.

Check with your department before electing the Credit/No Credit option because most programs will NOT accept this for prerequisite courses.

Grading

The Departments of Clinical Laboratory Sciences, Health Information Management, and Respiratory Care recognize only grades of A, B, or C as passing. Grades of D and F are not considered passing for the purpose of advancing in the curriculum.

Graduation with Distinction and Highest Distinction

The School of Health Professions awards the Highest Distinction honor to the undergraduates who have achieved the highest grade-point average among the programs in the school upon graduation. Distinction honors are bestowed upon those with the next highest final grade-point average. The total number of these 2 categories combined may exceed 10 percent of that year's graduating class.

Honor Roll

Students with grade-point averages of 3.5 who have completed at least 12 hours with letter grades are recognized on the honor roll or dean’s list in fall and spring. An Honor Roll notation appears on the transcript.

Transfer of Credit

Only transfer grades of C or higher apply toward graduation from the School of Health Professions at KU. Not all programs in the school accept transfer students. Please check with the appropriate program for full eligibility requirements.

CredTran is a transfer course equivalency system that lists more than 2,200 colleges and universities from which KU has accepted transfer courses in the past. If your school or course is not listed, your evaluation will be completed when you are admitted to KU.
