REQUIRED & PERMITTED LOADS
Students may take a maximum of three 12-week certificate classes per semester.
Regular class attendance is an essential part of the purposes and objectives of the academic program. Only three absences are allowed per class.
ABSENCES & LEAVES
A schedule of class times is published each semester. If students miss more than three classes, they will be automatically withdrawn. In addition, fifteen minutes after the beginning of the class, students are marked present or absent. Class attendance is recorded, and grade points are lowered with successive absences. Students may be granted leave only by permission and only in case of emergency.
The student may make changes in the audit status only during the drop/add period.
The term “Audit” implies the following:
- The student pays the audit fee.
- The student receives no academic evaluation.
- The student may make changes in the audit status only during the drop/add period.
STANDARDS OF PROGRESS
Grades generally depend upon homework, tests, class discussion, and final examinations. All course work must be given to the instructor no later than two weeks after the end of the semester. Final grade is mailed when the course is paid in full. Students may obtain progress reports at any time during the semester, from the instructor.
Transcripts are issued once per semester, for course transfers.
Withdrawal/Incomplete: Any Student who wishes to apply for an Incomplete or Withdrawal, must first contact the Rochester Bible Institute’s office and complete the form, and the Executive Director’s approval and signature. The student must contact the course instructor for approval.
