There are ten (10) Quizzes throughout the program. Each quiz will be graded according to the ratio of correct answers to total questions multiplied by 20 points.

There are three (3) student reviews throughout the program. Each of these reviews will be graded against a specific rubric with a score out of a maximum of 100 points per project.

Cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA)

The cumulative GPA for the course is determined by dividing total points earned by total maximum points possible from graded elements (above).

Students must meet specific qualitative and quantitative standards at each evaluation point to remain in good academic standing.

Failure to remain in good academic standing will trigger academic probation which may lead to academic termination as described herein. Evaluations will occur at the completion of one-third,

two-thirds and the end of the regular enrollment term (measured in clock-hours and not in calendar days).

Academic Progress

  • Qualitative Standard – Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA). At each evaluation point, students must have a minimum CGPA of 70% as determined by the average exams taken by the time of the evaluation.
  • Quantitative Standard – Students must earn all clock hours for the evaluation period where clock hours are awarded at the successful completion of each course (in amounts indicated on each course syllabus).

Academic Probation

Students who fail to achieve both the qualitative and quantitative requirements of any evaluation period shall be placed in the academic status of “Probation” until the next evaluation period.

The probation period is a time of monitored performance where affected students must maintain SAP and attendance requirements for the probation period. Affected students will be evaluated at the end of the probation period and a determination of satisfactory progress will be made. A favorable determination will result in the return to the academic status of “Good Standing”.
