To encourage students to do their best academically, the following policy has been adopted regarding maintaining a minimum grade:

Any student who does not earn a final grade of C- (64%) or above for any course will be required to re-take the course at a later date. Tuition fees for repeat classes will be $100 per course per quarter.

Any student who is paying attention, attending chats, and completing most of the assignments laid out in the syllabus will have no trouble earning a final grade of C-. However, distractions can keep you from focusing on the subject matter, actively participating in chats, reading, or completing assigned projects. Students who do not engage in the course enough to earn a grade of at least a C- probably have not mastered the material sufficiently to meet the educational requirements for credentialing.
