Your progress will be formally reviewed after each year of your program. An Annual Review at the end of the first and second years of the program will involve assessing your progress and identifying any areas of difficulty. A Degree Candidacy Review at the end of the third year of the program will examine the results of the Doctoral Qualifying Examination and input from your advisor, faculty, and practicum supervisors. Students satisfactorily passing this review will be certified as Doctoral Candidates and may proceed with their Doctoral Dissertation Project and be eligible to pursue application for internship. Additional review of student progress will be held as needed.
The mechanisms for Academic Progress Review include the following:
- Each term there is a review of each student’s academic records by the student’s advisor, under the direction of the Director of Student Affairs, to determine if satisfactory progress is being made.
- A more comprehensive Annual Review of each student’s academic, interpersonal, and professional performance and conduct take place following completion of the Spring semester.
- A Special Review can be initiated at any time by the student or any faculty member, when circumstances warrant.
Extensive consultation and academic progress review with your advisor
- Interim status in order to meet expectations set by the review
- Recommendation to the Registrar for disenrollment from Antioch University New England
If a particular faculty member has questions about your academic competence and progress, the matter will be discussed with you before any administrative action is taken.
You will be informed in writing of the results of your reviews. All students have the right to due process and can appeal decisions of interim or disenrollment to the chairperson of the Department of Clinical Psychology or, if necessary, the Vice President for Academic Affairs (See Student Grievance Procedures). The decision to recommend disenrollment of a student for unsatisfactory academic progress can be made at any time during a student’s program.
