    it was 2nd term i had complications with. personal issues interfered with midterm studying, and i was determined to make it up in my final grades. i guess if they pore deep enough, or let me explain it, i had dramatic improvement from midterm to finals. it was a fluke, but one heavily influenced by external circumstances. and i am going now from aug term to jan term by retaking classes, so i guess its more bridge time?

    i plan on making up for everything. thank you for your concern, though.

    That sounds like a good plan. If you do well in your classes, do well in your USMLE, do well in rotations, that will show these failing were a bad luck. That will prove you were right to fight for reinstatement and they were right to reinstate you.

    don't want to bring up a beaten thread, but just wanted to offer any help to anyone still unable to get over the dismissed situation from SGU

    I got an acceptance letter today from a US school in pennsylvania, so back on track. and now that i know how to study, just going to study my *** off by myself for the next year.
    I'd be happy to share my experience and how i went about doing it - of course what I say is speculative, I'm not entirely sure what they are looking for but I can give you what
    they asked me and what I thought was the biggest things in my app that stood out and got a yes - PM me

    I'm glad things worked out better for you! It's great that you are able to turn something negative and be productive about it.

    I got dismissed today. c gpa 81, failed parasite, and then I failed the parasite completion. In term 4 currently, registered for all of the classes. I appealed for a second chance. Do I still go to class while waiting on their decision? Will I have to forfeit my term 4 spot regardless of their decision? Anyone, please help.

    Please ensure that you see every single professor and course director right now. You should still attend class while waiting on their decision.

    Dismissed from Nursing Program - need help to appeal

    Hi I was a student at SGU in 2019 until their DOS office recently kicked me out of my program.

    It started with the Chair of the department giving me wrong information to register, and when I did what I was told, her secretary had a very nasty tone about it, in the presence of others in the office. A few weeks later, I foolishly emailed the secretary to tell her about her manners and the Chair of the department escalated to the DOS office, without sitting with me to discuss it first.

    The DOS office scheduled me for meetings without consulting my schedule and expected me to show up, even when I was home sick and had to work. Mind you, I didn't get any scholarships and I had no financial help or means to get a loan so I needed to work for food, etc. I informed them of all the above but that was completely ignored because the "officials" in that DOS office seemed to figure they were too "official" to listen to anything I had to say. My position as TA at the school was also stripped from me because I was accused of "chronic" lack of attendance to their meetings. I was accused of many things, including reading my emails when home sick with an expired SGU password for accessing my account. I tried to be very diplomatic in my writing but I was also told, by DOS official and my department Chair, that my use of the word "convenient", "unethical", "uncouth" etc. was disrespectful.

    The DOS asked me to provide an apology, and I provided four (4) apologies, for the sake of peace, but they were all ignored. Mind you, one apology was written by an SGU supervisor and an SGU faculty with a Doctorate's degree. They gave me hell about poor communication, so I suppose the apologies from the supervisor and faculty member was also poor. SGU has their own court system and their lawyer slammed me with all sorts of violations, including falsifying university documents. When the panel asked the Chair of my department if she had signed my registration form, she said a very gruff "no", even though her signature is on the form in the registrar's office. With God, I was found not guilty for forgery!

    During detention sittings with my probation officer, I tried to ask her some questions about our previous discussions but she got red in the face and dismissed me from her office. One of the questions asked: "Why would you say that Dr. .... does not care when she is supposed to care"? I also asked a seperate official if was "supposed to leave my sick bed to attend those meetings" and she didn't respond. My probation letter said to email DOS if I had any questions but when I did that their lawyer created a string of violations about that. I also emailed the new Dean of SAS to ask him a question and to help him find the evidence he was looking for about my program but that also turned out to be a violation. The provost had no response to my emails and the new ombudsman said she has no power to do anything other than give me advice. Their lawyer also referred to me and my sentiments as "rat hole" and the panel members had nothing to say to that. I am still wondering which gov't is SGU bigger than!!

    I have evidence to show that the decision was made before the 2nd hearing was called and that is blatant discrimination - my account has a learning mgmt system lock hold that still says "DO NOTTTTT REMOVE" so I can't see my grades or request my transcript. Based on confessions from one of my cohort and from other students, SGU only have respect and humility for students with rich backgrounds - students with parents who are politicians, doctors, diplomats, etc. An esteemed member of society told me that "SGU is bigger than the government" because "they are not nice" and "you are not wrong but they just feel you should not tell them anything because you are too much in their face". Mind you, the provost had no response and neither did any other the higher heads, including the Chancellor, etc.

    I asked SGU for an apology but instead I got a whole lot of negative attitude, probation, a detention officer, 2 court cases and dismissal from my program (which I fought to enter into for many, many years) and from the university. One is ever open to correction and understands the need for discipline and rules but if SGU staff can't exemplify ethics and professionalism to students then how can they slam students from same??

    I rest my case!!
