A student who has not met the academic or conduct standards as determined by the College of Professional Studies may be dismissed from the Villanova non-credit professional programs. The student will be informed of the dismissal via electronic communication immediately following the decision. Typically, the student will be allowed to appeal the dismissal in writing to the Dean of the College. There is no additional process of appeal beyond the Dean of the College. In some cases (e.g., when the student has had previous warnings), the student may, at the determination of the College, be dismissed without right of appeal.
