Clearance for Clinical Residency includes completion of all other coursework. Exceptions require approval using the Student Petition Form.

In addition to the Graduate School requirement of a cumulative 3.0 GPA on all AU courses carrying graduate credit, a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.25 is required on all courses used to meet program requirements.  

Coursework used to meet admission requirements cannot be used again to meet Alternative Class A program requirements.

All substitutions for required courses must be approved using the Course Substitution Form, including transfer work.  

Undergraduate courses may be required by your advisory committee for your plan of study. This coursework is in addition to the total graduate program hours noted above and must be completed prior to Clinical Residency.
