GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS

C&RS students are required to earn a grade of a least a "C" or better in each BIOL and MEDR prefix course prior to placement in the PPEs. Students must also earn a grade of at "C" in the MEDR courses to graduate from the C&RS program.

Should a student fail MEDR or BIOL courses a second time: They may re-take MEDR and/or BIOL courses as a continuing education student. Then, upon successful completion with a "C" or better, apply for readmission to the C&RS program. Or, students may retake the BIOL/MEDR equivalent courses on-campus at Alfred State or at another college, and transfer the credit back to Alfred State after having obtained pre-approval of the course for transfer credit and earning a grade of "C" or better.
