If a student has not met the criteria of satisfactory progress at any point during the term the student will be placed on probation. A student is encouraged to communicate regularly with his or her instructor while on probation. A copy of a signed probation document outlining the terms of the probation will be given to the student and the employer-partner sponsor, and the original is filed in the student file. If the student has not achieved satisfactory academic progress by the end of the probation term, he/she may be dismissed. The school reserves the right to dismiss students who have exceeded three probations.
