Academic Progress
Students enrolled in the Masters Degree Clinical Perfusion are expected to make satisfactory academic progress toward the completion of their Plan of Study and degree requirements.  All courses must be passed with a grade of “C” or better and a 2.0 cumulative grade point average (GPA) must be maintained throughout enrollment in the program.  Courses may be repeated only once, and a cumulative GPA below 2.0 at the completion of any semester will result in dismissal from the program. 

Degree Completion  
Upon successful completion of all requirements by the deadline dates set by the Program, graduates of the MPS DAO are welcome to participate in the graduation ceremonies in Omaha, Nebraska (May and December only). Graduates will be awarded the Master of Perfusion Science degree. 

To obtain your transcripts, please visit the UNMC Student Services website.

Continuing Education
For the purpose of reporting continuing education activity to the American Board of Cardiovascular Perfusion (ABCP), CEU's will apply ONLY toward credit hours NOT converted to academic credit hours.  This occurs ONLY by withdrawal from the program or failure to complete the program in the allotted 36 month period.  ABCP credit may be applied as Category III CEUs as described in their Booklet of Information.
