Special Requirement for DMS, MRI, CVT, and DCS

Students enrolled in the DMS program, and students who enrolled in MRI, CVT, and DCS after May 1, 2018, are required to complete all pre-diagnostic courses with a cumulative GPA (CGPA) of 3.0 in order to progress to the major diagnostic course track of the program.

Students who fail to achieve the required CGPA of 3.0 will be asked to withdraw from their respective program. Those who are asked to withdraw have the right to appeal the decision.
