Academic performance is assessed by class work, homework, practice sessions, projects, participation, professional disposition and all practical and written exams. In order to pass, a student must achieve an academic score of 75% or higher.
A student whose grades point average falls below 75% at the program midpoint will receive a Satisfactory Academic Progress Warning. A student who is still below the Satisfactory Progress standards at the end of the next evaluation period is subject to termination. If they are terminated and file a successful appeal and are allowed to continue, they must correct the deficiency by the next consecutive evaluation period. If terminated, a student is eligible for a tuition refund as outlined in our “Cancellation & Refund Policy”. If a student repeats a failed course they will pay tuition costs. Students who are having difficulty should notify the instructor as soon as possible. Tutorial services are provided at no cost to the student. If needed, arrangements should be made with the instructor.
The grading scale is as follows: A= 90% – 100% • B= 80% – 89% • C= 70% – 79% • D= 60% – 69% • F= below 60%.
All students are expected to maintain specific standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP). A student is considered in good standing when their grade point average is 75% or higher and their attendance is 95% or higher. Students are advised of their academic and attendance status via warnings and progress reports.
