In order to provide an excellent, respectful and healing learning environment the following briefly describes some of our academic policies. Please reference the school catalog for a complete description of all of our academic and ethical policies.
Students are required to register for all courses two days prior to the start of the course. Students that register after this period will be charged a $10 late registration fee.
No Show Fee
Students who register for a course and fail to attend without dropping the course by the first day of class will be charged a $30 “no show” fee. Students can drop a class in writing, fax in Add/Drop Form or call the office to drop a course over the phone–be sure to leave a message clearly stating your name, phone number, and the course you are dropping.
Class Attendance: Students are expected to be in class on time and participate throughout the class. It is the student’s responsibility to sign the attendance roster every class.
Tardiness: It is very important that students arrive to class on time. Tardiness is disruptive and inconsiderate to both the instructor and other students. Instructors will deduct time from students’ attendance if they arrive late to class, return late from breaks, or leave class early. Any time that is deducted from attendance must be made up in order to receive a complete credit for the course.
Course Attendance: Attendance is fundamental to maintaining the students’ quality of education. Students are required to complete all class hours and assignments to receive a “Complete” in the course. Make-up options are available to students who have missed no more than 25% of the course. If a student misses over 25% of the course, the hours attended will be counted as general electives. To receive a “Complete” for the course, the course must be taken again in its entirety. Students must receive a “Complete” in all required courses to receive a program certificate.
Students are allowed to make-up up to 25% of a missed course. The make-up option(s) for each course are individually determined by the instructor and are listed on each course syllabus.
The School of Healing Arts reserves the right to cancel or change course dates, this will only be done when absolutely necessary. All class cancellations or changes will be posted on the web site and administration bulletin board located outside of the office. The office will notify students of course cancellations or changes by phone and/or email when possible.
An instructor reserves the right to cancel a course due to low enrollment if there are fewer than six students in attendance. It is thus very important that students register for courses in advance and arrive to class on time. If a student is going to miss the first day of class they must notify the instructor in advance and gain instructor permission to attend the course.
