  • Academic Probation and Dismissal Policies

    If you fail to meet the cumulative 85% attendance or 70% grade average for any evaluation period, or both, you ill be placed on probation for the next evaluation period. Your failure to achieve an 85% attendance or a 70% grade average, or both, at the end of the probationary evaluation period will result in your being administratively withdrawn.

    You will be notified in writing if you are placed on probation. You will be informed, in writing, of the steps necessary to be removed from probationary status. You will also receive attendance or academic counseling, from the School Director, as appropriate, at the time you are placed on probation. This institution will notify a student by certified mail if he or she is being administratively withdrawn for unsatisfactory academic progress.

  • Attendance Policy – All Programs

    You are expected to attend school regularly. This institution’s policy requires the following minimums for graduation: 85% cumulative attendance in the classroom.

    You are expected to call the office when you will not be in attendance, so the instructor may be advised. Attendance is tracked in every class period by the instructor, to the nearest quarter hour. If you miss more than 10 minutes of any class period, you will be marked absent for the whole hour. Each day your instructor will submit attendance records to an administrator who will track each student’s attendance. The cumulative attendance information is contained on the module progress report given to all students every four weeks. If you do not agree with any of the attendance data, you must submit a written appeal to the School Director within one week of the progress report distribution. At the end of each tracking period of four weeks the attendance data for that time span becomes permanent and can no longer be challenged.

    You are also expected to be in class on time. If you arrive late for class your instructor will record you as tardy. If you leave before the instructor dismisses class, the instructor will record an early departure. If you are tardy or have an early departure three times or more in any four week reporting period, you will be placed on attendance probation for the remainder of that attendance reporting period. You will also be required to meet with the School Director for counseling regarding tardy arrivals and early departures.

    If you do not have cumulative attendance of at least 85% at the end of any four week reporting period, you will be placed on Attendance Probation for the next module. You must meet with the School Director and abide by the terms outlined in the Attendance Probation notice. At the end of the module on Attendance Probation, you must be making progress toward meeting the 90% cumulative attendance requirement, and have met all of the terms of the Attendance Probation. Failure to do so may result in termination from school.

    After no more than two modules on attendance probation, you must again meet the 85% cumulative attendance requirement, or you will be dismissed from school.

    Make-up hours must be prearranged with the instructor, and must be completed outside
    of normally scheduled class hours. Only time spent on instructor-approved activities on campus will count as make-up hours. Such activities may include completing class exercises, viewing class tapes, or other course-related assignments.

    A student who is absent for eight consecutive class days or fourteen consecutive calendar days without an approved leave of absence will be terminated.

    Any student dismissed for attendance related reasons—consecutive absences, failure to maintain the 90% cumulative attendance, excessive tardiness or early departures, failure to meet the terms of attendance probation, or failure to return from a leave of absence—may restart classes in the next module only with the School Director’s written authorization.

  • Language Proficiency

    The following apply to students for whom English is not their primary language:
    For a student whose high school or equivalent coursework was not completed in English, and for whom English was not a primary language, we will seek a score of 500 on the paper-test, 163 on the computer test and 61 on the Internet-based test (iBT) on a TOEFL. The TOEFL requirement does not apply to students who have received their high school diploma or the equivalent at an academic institution which has provided the instruction in the English language. Similarly, the TOEFL requirement does not apply to students who have completed coursework, in English, at the college level.
  • Language of Instruction

    Instructions will be given in no language other than English.

However, this institution will allow a student in the Office Skills program to test out if the applicant has attained, through self-study or study at another institution, the requisite skills to use the software (Microsoft Office Programs) with capabilities equal to those required at this institution.
  • Grades and Standards for Student Achievement – Satisfactory Progress

    Grades are awarded on a pass fail basis. Checklists are used by instructors to record student acquisition and mastery of assorted skills
  • Appeal Process

    The student may submit a written appeal of his/her dismissal within five calendar days of receipt of the dismissal notice. The appeal should be addressed to the School Director. The appeal must be accompanied by documentation of the mitigating circumstances that have prevented the student from attaining satisfactory academic progress. Only extraordinary circumstances will be considered, such as death or severe illness in the immediate family.

    The School Director will assess all appeals, and determine whether the student may be permitted to continue in school on a probationary status, despite not meeting the satisfactory progress requirements. The student will be sent the written decision within ten days of the institution’s receipt of the appeal. The decision of the School Director is final.

    Students reinstated upon appeal are on a probationary status for the next evaluation period, during which time they must meet the terms and conditions set out in the School Director’s letter granting the appeal. At the end of the evaluation period, and at the end of every evaluation period thereafter, the student’s academic status will be reviewed. The student may continue on probation as long as he or she meets the terms of the probation, until such time as satisfactory academic progress status is regained.

  • Maximum Time Frame

    All program requirements must be completed within a maximum time frame of 1.5 times the normal program length, as measured in calendar time. For example, a program scheduled for 20 weeks in length, must be completed within 35 calendar weeks. Time spent on an approved leave of absence is not counted against the maximum time frame. Students exceeding the maximum time frame will be administratively withdrawn.
  • Transfer and Readmitted Students

    Transfer students from outside the institution will be evaluated qualitatively only on the work completed while at this school. The maximum time frame is reduced for transfer students, based upon the remaining length of the program in which they enroll. If the student transfers in 100 hours, and therefore must complete 400 hours at this school, (400/25 hours per week = 16 weeks), the maximum time frame is 16 weeks x 150% or 24 weeks.
  • Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy

    The lengths of this institution’s programs are each 500 clock hours.
    Academic progress is evaluated every four weeks throughout the program.
    You are required to make quantitative progress toward program completion. To be making satisfactory academic progress, a you must attend at least 85% of the scheduled class hours on a cumulative basis during each evaluation period.

    Your academic average is reviewed to determine your qualitative progress. The minimum required is 70% at the conclusion of each evaluation period. Incomplete grades are not given, so you must repeat any classes in which you do not meet the minimum qualitative score of 70%. The lowest grade will be dropped and the highest grade will be used to calculate the academic average. Course work repeated may adversely affect a student’s academic progress in terms of the maximum time frame.

    If you withdraw from the program you will receive a grade of 0% in each class interrupted by the withdrawal. All interrupted classes must be repeated if you reapply and are readmitted to this institution.

  • Graduation Requirements (Minimum Standards)
