Granting of Academic Credit
Due to the unique nature of these courses and instruction, its intensity and the importance of continuity, no credit towards completion is granted for previous experience or training.
Students are expected to attend classes as scheduled as they would be expected to be present for work. Absences and tardiness will be recorded.
The school requires minimum attendance of at least 70% of all class hours. A student who misses 30% or more of the total class hours will be considered as having made unsatisfactory progress and will be dismissed. Students who are tardy for more than 40% of class days will also be deemed unsatisfactory and dismissed.
Make-up class work must be arranged by the student with the individual instructor.
The progress or grading system by which our students can be evaluated and compared with others taking same course may be system reported as: Pass/Fail, or Excellent, Average, Unsatisfactory and Incomplete.
Each design will be reviewed and inspected for technical correctness and sale ability at the retail level. Students who meet these requirements will be deemed "satisfactory". Students who fail to meet these requirements will be given counseling towards improving these deficiencies. A student who fail after said counseling will be deemed "unsatisfactory" and will not graduate.
Students must complete each unit of study with satisfactory progress to "graduate".
