Attendance & Graduation Requirements

Attendance

Cosmix students are expected to have the professional dispositions necessary to be successful in the industry. This includes arriving early and being prepared for class. Academic progress is measured by clock hours, so a student's participation in class is necessary for it to count towards the cumulative attendance. As a result, tardiness and absence will not be excused. In the case of illness, students are required to attend unscheduled hours to cover lesson material, practice applications, and be evaluated as deemed necessary by the Instructor. The Director determines whether a student with low attendance must repeat a course before progressing.

Any program student whose attendance falls below 95% during any evaluation period receives a Satisfactory Academic Progress Warning, and if below 95% at the end of any module (Basic, Fashion, Character, Film & TV, or Special FX) is subject to overtime charges of $10 per hour. If allowed to continue, the student must correct the deficiency by the next consecutive evaluation period. Non-program students who are only taking an individual course must maintain a 95% attendance throughout a course or be subject to withdrawal.

In order to receive a diploma, a student must have an attendance record of 95 % or higher. Any student whose attendance falls below 95% during any evaluation period receives a Satisfactory Academic Progress Warning and if below 95% at the end of any module is subject to overtime charges of $10 per hour. If it is determined that low attendance has had a negative impact on the student’s education, the student may have to repeat a course before progressing. If allowed to continue the student must correct the deficiency by the next consecutive evaluation period.

The maximum time to complete course requirements is 150% or 1.5 the normal duration of clock hours offered. Example: The Production program is 15 weeks long- 150% is 22 weeks (7.5 weeks past the expected graduation date).

If terminated, a student is eligible for a tuition refund as outlined in our “Cancellation & Refund Policy”. Students receiving VA educational benefits who drop below standards will be terminated from their VA benefits.

Tardies

A tardy is being late for the start of class, returning from lunch, or leaving class early. After SIX tardies a student is subject to withdrawal.

Graduation Requirements

Students must have shown satisfactory competencies in every area of curriculum in order to receive a diploma. All written tests & quizzes, evaluations, homework, and projects must be completed. Upon completion with a 90% minimum attendance and an academic score of 75% or higher, the student will receive a DIPLOMA.
