Evaluation of Attendance and Academic Progress
All students are evaluated 30 calendar days after the start date of the course and every 30 calendar days thereafter for Full-time students and 60 days for Part-time students. During these evaluations, attendance and academic progress will be monitored. Students failing to make satisfactory progress in attendance and/or academics will be placed on probation for 30-calendar days. At the next evaluation period, if the student is not making satisfactory progress in both attendance and academics, the student will be terminated. However, if the student is making satisfactory progress in both attendance and academics, the student will be removed from probation and shall be considered to be making satisfactory progress and financial aid funds will be disbursed to eligible students. Students are only permitted one probationary period during their course of study.
Based on these monthly evaluations, a student will receive two report cards, one at the midpoint of the course, and one at the end of the course. A final evaluation will be placed in the student's file.
