Educational Standing Policy
A student must meet the following minimum standards of educational achievement and successful course completion while enrolled at NATI ESL. The school requires that all courses be completed to graduate from the course or program.
A student’s educational progress status is reported on the student’s transcript which is provided each term through an online portal to student educational information.
Maximum Time Frame: all students must complete their course or program in a period not exceeding 1.5 times the normal length of the course or program. For example, for a program that requires successful completion of 960 clock hours, the student may not attempt more than 1440 clock hours (1.5 x 960).
Students will be evaluated every 25% of the clock hours required for that the course/program of study they are enrolled in according to this criteria: a student must maintain a Cumulative GPA (CGPA) of 2.0 or above in order to remain in school and be considered in good academic standing at each evaluation point of 25%, 50%, 75%, and 100% of the required course/program clock hours. The Program Coordinator may permit a student to retake a failed course. A passing grade on the retaken course would replace the original failed grade.
The school maintains all student progress records. If a student’s cumulative GPA is below a 2.0 at the 25% evaluation point of a course/program clock hours, this means that this student is not meeting the minimum requirement for satisfactory progress and that student will be placed on warning.
Further, a student must have at least 67% attendance at the end of every evaluation period.
At the next evaluation point of 50% of a course/program clock hours, if a student is not meeting the minimum requirement for satisfactory progress, academic and/or attendance, the student will be placed on probation.
