DMU students are expected to maintain high standards of academic performance and conduct.  Each academic program has an Academic Progress Committee (APC) charged with monitoring the academic progress and professional conduct of each student.

The APC monitors student success and reviews students who encounter academic difficulties or who demonstrate conduct which is deemed to be unprofessional, but not a direct violation of the Student Code of Conduct. The APC works collaboratively with the Dean’s Office, the student’s advisor, and other student support service departments across campus. The APC is a recommending and/or decision-making body regarding enrollment status changes, academic probation and academic dismissal. Additional information, including program-specific deficiencies and conditions for advancement, can be reviewed in the Student Handbook.
