The School of Health Professions seeks to recognize the academic achievements of its students. In the event that a student dies before completing all of the requirements before his/her degree, this policy establishes guidelines for the posthumous awarding of SHP degrees with consideration to academic and institutional integrity.
Under the University Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs, the Dean of SHP in consultation with the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs is responsible for this policy.
The student was in good standing and would likely have completed all of the degree requirements by the next graduation date had he/she not died.
The posthumous nature of the degree will be indicated on the diploma and on the student's transcript.
