4.1 Undergraduate professional and graduate professional courses
4.1.1 The second (tens) numeral designates the following:
- 0: courses not restricted to a particular year’s class;
- 1 through 4: first, second, third, or fourth year students in the dental curriculum;
- 8: elective courses;
- 9: special individual studies centered on research.
- 4.1.2 The third (units) numeral designates the following:
- 0 through 4: lecture courses;
- 5: laboratory courses;
- 6 through 8: seminars and courses that combine lecture, laboratory, or clinic;
- 9: clinical courses.
4.1.3 Further differentiations in course offerings within a single division may be indicated by a numeral after a decimal point; thus, the first divisional clinic course might be numbered 129, and a second clinic course in the same division 129.1.
4.1.4 Courses offered in a sequence are designated by numerals in the second decimal place. Thus, a series of clinical courses for third year students would be numbered 139.01, 139.02, 139.03, 139.04, assuming it began in Summer session and continued through the Fall, Winter, and Spring quarters. A course series so numbered indicates that a grade is given for each course; that the courses must be taken in the order prescribed; and that each is prerequisite to the others that follow.
184.108.40.206 Courses that extend over more than one quarter within an academic year are given a single course number and are considered as a single course, rather than a sequence. Thus, a single clinical course for third year students that extended over four quarters, but was graded once at the end of the Spring Quarter, would be numbered 139.
4.2 Graduate Division Courses. Courses, with a 2 in the hundreds digit and offered in programs leading to graduate academic degrees, are authorized by the Graduate Division. These courses may be incorporated in programs offering postgraduate professional degrees.
4.3 Professional courses for teachers. These courses have a three in the hundreds digit.
4.4 Postgraduate professional courses. Courses that are given in postgraduate professional certificate programs within the School of Dentistry have a four in the hundreds digit. Numbering in the tens, ones, and decimal digits should follow the same principles indicated for undergraduate professional and graduate professional courses (4.1.1 through 4.1.4).
5.1 Students must complete the curricula of the School of Dentistry as prescribed by the Faculty. Variations for individual students are permitted only with the approval of the Faculty.
5.1.1 A student may repeat no more than one academic year to make up for academic deficiencies [Amended 2/98]
5.2 Any student who requires more than the designated number of terms to complete requirements for the year in which he/she is enrolled must petition the Faculty Council for approval to register. This approval must be obtained before registration in each succeeding term.
5.3 Elective Courses
5.3.1 Elective courses may be included in a student’s program with the approval of the instructor and the Dean or the Dean’s designated representative.
5.3.2 In the last three quarters of the dental curriculum, students are required to enroll in a specified number of courses, as determined by the Educational Policy committee of the School of Dentistry.
5.4 Graduate Courses
5.4.1 Qualified students may receive credit for graduate academic courses, subject to the approval of the Dean or the Dean’s designated representative.
5.4.2 Professional and postgraduate professional students may work concurrently toward a Master’s Degree or a PhD Degree in the Graduate Division, subject to the approval of the Dean of the School of Dentistry and the Dean of the Graduate Division, or their designated representatives.
5.5 Honors Program
5.5.1 A special limited enrollment program is available in the last two quarters for students who have demonstrated superior professional competence and potential to develop as dental educators.
6.1 Unit Credit
6.1.1 The regulations of the School of Dentistry governing unit credit are authorized by SR 760.
6.1.2 Unit credit for clinical courses in the School of Dentistry will be assigned on the basis of course work completed.
6.2.1 Final examinations are required in all lecture and laboratory courses taught in the School of Dentistry except as provided elsewhere in this regulation.
6.2.2 In accordance with general policies established by the Divisional Committee on Courses of Instruction, the faculty of the School of Dentistry may designate courses in which a final examination may be omitted
6.3.1 In accordance with the Divisional Regulation on Grades (SFR 775, approved 30 Nov 77) the work of all students in the School of Dentistry will be reported in terms of the following grades:
220.127.116.11 Passing: P (Passed), H (Passed with Honors),: A (Excellent), B (Good), C (Fair), D (Poor) [letter grades are used in certain elective courses, and postgraduate professional and graduate courses]
18.104.22.168 Not Passing: NP (not passed), F (Failure) [letter grades are used in certain elective courses and postgraduate professional and graduate courses]
22.214.171.124 In Progress: SP (Satisfactory Progress), UP (Unsatisfactory Progress) [en 7 May 1992]
126.96.36.199 Provisional: I (incomplete), Y (not passing)
188.8.131.52 The awarding of honors is permitted only for 3rd and 4th year courses in the dental and international dental curricula. Honors performance is determined by the course chair.
6.3.2 Grade points per unit are assigned by the Registrar as follows:
A-4, B-3, C-2, D-l, F-O. The grades P, NP, I, and Y are disregarded in computing the grade point average.
6.3.3 The grade P and those grades for which at least 2 grade points per unit are assigned denote satisfactory progress toward a degree. The grade D denotes progress toward a degree but must be offset by grades for which proportionately more than 2 grade points per unit are assigned.
6.3.4 Grades of P and NP
184.108.40.206 The grade of P will be awarded only for work that would otherwise receive a grade of C or better; the grade NP is assigned wherever a grade of D or F would otherwise be given. The grade I may be assigned when a student’s work is of passing quality but is incomplete for good cause.
220.127.116.11 The grade NP must be removed and replaced by a grade of P, in a manner designated by the course instructor and the Student Status Committee, before appropriate credit may be given.
18.104.22.168 GPA’s and rankings are not computed for the dental and international dental students, all final grades are reported as P/NP. H grades may be awarded in the 3rd and 4th year dental and international dental courses.
22.214.171.124 Postgraduate professional students may elect to have up to 25% of their total required units graded P/NP.
126.96.36.199 The Registrar will indicate on the Course Report those students who elected P/NP grades. The instructor will then record each student’s grade accordingly.
188.8.131.52 Units earned on a Passed basis are counted in satisfaction of degree requirements, but are disregarded in determining a student’s grade point average.
184.108.40.206 A student cited for unprofessional behavior or a student who has received two or more Professionalism Evaluation Reports in the same single-quarter or multi-quarter course, may be awarded a NP or UP grade for that course at the discretion of the Course Director, even though the student may have passed examinations based on the course didactic material and/or demonstrated technical or clinical competence. Requirements to clear the NP or UP grade based on such a pattern of unprofessional behavior will be decided on a case-by-case basis with the Dean and Course Director (See also the document entitled: “Professionalism as a Core Competency of the Academic Program of the UCSF School of Dentistry.”
220.127.116.11 A student having an NP or F (in the case of some elective courses and postgraduate courses) grade must petition the Office of the Registrar for removal of the grade during the quarter following successful completion of the course requirements. The NP or F grade will remain on the transcript and the student will not be permitted to graduate until this administrative process is completed.
6.3.5 Grades of SP and UP:
The grades of SP and UP will be used only in courses that extend over one academic quarter. A final passing grade (as described in 18.104.22.168) or not passing grade (as described in 22.214.171.124) will be assigned at the end of the course in the designated terminal quarter. The UP grade indicates that progress to date is not up to the usual standard; however, student performance by the end of the course may achieve the passing standard and be reflected in the terminal grade. The UP grade will be automatically changed to SP if the terminal grade is passing; it will remain on the academic record if the terminal grade is not passing. Grades of SP remain on the academic record in addition to the terminal grade. [7 May 1992]
6.3.6 Grade of I (incomplete)
126.96.36.199 The grade I is assigned when a student’s work is of passing quality but is incomplete for good cause (SFR 775-E).
188.8.131.52 A student having an I grade must petition the Office of the Registrar for removal of the grade during the quarter following completion of the course requirements. Failure to remove an I grade as required will result in the instructor of record changing the grade to NP or F [Amended 2/98].
6.3.7 Grade of Y (not-passing).
The grade Y is a not-passing provisional grade which may be raised to a D in the manner, and by the time designated by the instructor and the Student Status Committee. A student having a Y grade must petition the Office of the Registrar for removal of the grade during the quarter following completion of the requirement. Failure to remove a Y grade as required will result in the instructor of record changing the grade to F [Amended 2/98]
6.3.8 All grades except I, Y and NP are final when filed by an instructor in the end-of-term course report. However, a clerical or procedural error may be corrected by the supervisor of the course.
184.108.40.206 No term grade except I, Y or NP may be revised by examination.
220.127.116.11 Except as provided in 6.3.8 and 6.4 below, a student may repeat only those courses in which a grade of NP, D, , or F was given. An exception to the rule may be authorized by the Faculty for a student who received the grade of I or Y.
6.3.9 Except as approved by the Dean, no student may repeat more than once a course in which the student has received a grade of NP,D, Y or F.
7.1 Student Status Committees. Student Status Committees will review the academic performance of Students in the School of Dentistry. This includes postgraduate and specialty programs whose accreditation requires that Faculty maintain academic standards. The Student Status Committees will follow their prescribed evaluation procedures and keep Students informed of their academic performance.
- Membership. For every academic term in which grades are recorded, a separate committee will be formed of the course directors for each class of Dental and International Dental Students to review the academic performance of that class. In postgraduate specialty and residency programs, Student status is determined by the Program Director in consultation with the Faculty.
- Each committee will be composed of course directors for the specific class during that term for the specific year (D1, D2, etc.) and program.
- The Chairperson of the Faculty Council, with the concurrence of the Faculty Council, will approve the membership of each committee and will designate one member of the Faculty to chair each of the Student Status Committees (the “Chair”). The Chair will begin with the incoming Students, D1 or ID3, and continue to chair the Student Status Committee for that class until the class graduates. Should the Chair of the Committee not be able to serve the multiple-year term due to changes in circumstances (such as leaving the University, or other personal or extenuating circumstances for example), the Chair of the Faculty Council will appoint a new chair to serve out the remainder of that term.
- In addition to the course directors, the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, the Associate Dean for Education, and the Associate Dean for Student Affairs will be ex-officio members of the Student Status Committees.
7.1.2 The Chairperson of the Faculty Council may, with concurrence of the Council, appoint other Faculty to specified committees.
