Requirements for graduation

The requirements for the MD degree from the School of Medicine are established by the Medical School Faculty Senate and allow no exceptions. All MD degree candidates must be registered either for the quarter during which the degree is conferred or the previous quarter. Satisfactory payment of 13 quarters of full medical school tuition is required for graduation. Students must petition to graduate on Axess in order to have their degrees conferred. Students may graduate in any quarter by completing their degree requirements and petitioning by the deadline date for that quarter.

Students cannot graduate with any uncorrected failing grades in a preclinical course or any uncorrected failing or marginal performance grades in clinical clerkships. Students can graduate with one uncorrected marginal pass in a preclinical course having fewer than eight units.

NOTE: These requirements may be changed at any time.
