VCOM College Catalog and Student Handbook

 Students enrolled in VCOM’s National Board Preparation course must sit for their second attempt of COMSAE Phase no later than 1 week following the conclusion of the immersion program.  Option 2: Follow an independent study plan.  Students who do not choose to attend an external immersion program and who choose to follow an independent study plan must sit for the regularly scheduled second attempt of COMSAE Phase 1.

COMSAE Phase 1: Second Attempt • Students who score 460 or greater on COMSAE Phase 1 on the second attempt will receive a “P” (Pass) grade for the Comprehensive Review Course (provided they have met all other course requirements) and will be allowed to sit for COMLEX Level 1 within the VCOM approved testing window. Once students pass COMSAE Phase 1 they are to continue to study until they take COMLEX Level 1 during the approved testing window (usually mid-June through mid-July). • Students who score 440 – 459 on COMSAE Phase 1 on the second attempt will maintain the “IP” (In Progress) grade for the Comprehensive Review Course. To resolve the “IP” grade and be released to sit for COMLEX Level 1, the student is required to do the following: o Meet with CIFSS to extend and/or modify their current prescribed remediation plan. The plan includes a tentative date the student is to sit for COMLEX Level 1.  The remediation plan includes providing CIFSS with weekly updates regarding study plan progress and question bank performance. Additional requirements may be prescribed in the remediation plan. Students must follow and complete a prescribed remediation plan as designed. VCOM will monitor students’ progress toward completion of the prescribed remediation plan and readiness to sit for COMLEX Level 1, which may alter the tentative testing date established in the remediation plan.  Students who fail to participate in the prescribed remediation plan (which includes providing CIFSS with updates regarding study plan progress and question bank performance) or who have not participated in the required support meeting, will receive an “F” (Fail) grade for the course and be brought before the Promotion Board. These students will not be released to sit for COMLEX Level 1 until the “F” grade is resolved, as they will not have successfully completed the OMS 2 year. o Students must complete the remediation plan and sit for COMLEX Level 1 prior to entering the OMS 3 year.  Those students who complete the remediation plan and sit for COMLEX Level 1 by the first day of the regularly scheduled OMS 3 year will receive a “P” (Pass) grade for the Comprehensive Review Course (provided they have met all other course requirements) and will be promoted to the OMS 3 year.  Those students who have not completed the plan and/or who have not sat for COMLEX Level 1 by the first day of the regularly scheduled OMS 3 year will receive an “INC” (Incomplete) grade for the course and will be not be eligible for promotion to the OMS 3 year. These students will be temporarily withdrawn until they receive a passing COMLEX Level 1 score. Once the student is temporarily withdrawn, they must sit for COMLEX Level 1 within 60 days or be dismissed by the Campus Dean. These students will not be eligible for re-enrollment or further financial aid until they pass COMLEX Level 1.
