Attendance Policy


Regular attendance is mandatory to remain in any program. If student is unable to attend a scheduled class for any reason or will be running late for a scheduled class, student must notify the student service department by calling 1866-261-1014 or contact the instructor for the class. Just as this program is important to students, it is equally important for our instructors. Students will be allowed two (2) absences throughout the duration of the selected program of study. If a student misses scheduled classes for more than two (2) times, without a valid reason, he/she will be drop from the class and will have to reapply.


Grading System


The grading system is as follows:


A-(90-100)-Excellent: indicates work of a very high character, the highest grade given.
