Remedial Experiences and Reinstatement to Good Standing

ACE CURRICULUM

Remediation 

Phase I

A total of three summative exams can be remediated. A total of two remediation attempts are allowed for a failed exam.  A failed exam is remediated the following Monday morning. In Kansas City, the remediation exams will take place in the computer testing center (CTC) in Dykes library.  In Salina, contact Michael Robinson, PhD and in Wichita contact Scott Moser, MD to see where the remediation exams will be held.   The block director will be available to answer any questions you may have as you prepare for the remediation exam.  Failing the Monday remediation exam will lead to the student taking a second remediation exam during week 9 (SER week) of the block. The first failed remediation exam will be retaken Wednesday morning of SER week, a second failed remediation exam will be retaken Friday morning of SER week, and a third failed remediation exam will be retaken the first week of the next block to be scheduled on a case-by-case basis. The block director will contact you no later than Monday morning of the SER week to inform you of the remediation process/materials with appropriate faculty contacts. Failing the second remediation exam results in a block failure.    A failing CSE performance will be remediated immediately after the CSE or if needed, you will be scheduled for a remediation session. Failure to pass the remediated CSE will result in failing the foundational block.
