Students must maintain 80% cumulative attendance for the Clinical Medical Assistant, Phlebotomy Technician and ECG/EKG Technician programs.
SATISFACTORY ACADEMIC PROGRESS STANDARDS
Satisfactory progress is defined as maintaining a 2.0 grade point average measured by passing examinations with a 70% or better accuracy, timely completion of assignments, and acceptable performance of required skills.
The grading system outlined below is used for all courses. Only letter grades are posted to the student’s official school transcript.
Grade point Average
80 – 89%
70 – 79%
Course withdrawal will not affect a student’s grade point average (GPA).
Incomplete grades cannot be given as a final grade and will affect the student’s GPA until a final grade is assigned. However, at the end of the module or term, students may be granted a maximum extension not exceeding 14 calendar days to complete the course requirements. If the student does not complete the course requirement within the extension period, he/she will receive a failing grade of “F” for the module or term.
To receive credit in the clinical practicum, the student must have a satisfactory grade based on the skills checklist and must meet the guidelines for the objectives and the criteria in the student clinical practicum evaluation administered by their clinical supervisor/instructor.
If a student fails to meet satisfactory academic progress standards, he/she will be placed on academic probation for next module. Students must meet the satisfactory academic progress standards by the end of the probationary period in order to remain in the program. If the student fails to meet the satisfactory academic progress standards (grade of 70% or better) by the end of the probationary period, the student will be terminated from the institute.
Upon successful completion of a program a student will earn a Certificate of Completion provided the student meets all of the following conditions:
- Complete each module with a grade point average (GPA) of at least 70% (on a scale of 1-100 percent).
- Meet all applicable attendance standards.
- Meet all applicable clinical and laboratory skill-proficiency standards.
