Registration & Classes How many times can I repeat a course?

Effective August 2019 all courses that are part of a credential (Certificate, Diploma, and Post-Degree Diploma) will be subject to a registration limit of two (2) attempts. This means if you registered in a course twice, you must receive approval from the Program Coordinator to register for a third time. The request must be submitted by email. The Program Coordinator will review your case before making a final decision.

Note: If you dropped a course and it is not recorded on your transcript, this does not count towards the repeat limit; if you registered and withdrew from a course with a W on your transcript, this will count towards the repeat limit.

Exams & Testing What is the final exam policy?

Where completion of a final examination is required in order to receive credit for a course, students must be available for your examinations as scheduled. It is your responsibility to be aware of the time and date of your final examinations as indicated on the final version of the examination schedule. If possible, final examinations will be rescheduled upon request for any student scheduled to write:

  1. Two or more examinations at the same time, or
  2. Two or more examinations, each exceeding one hour in duration, with an intervening break of less than one-half hour (30 minutes), or
  3. More than three examinations in different courses in one day, or
  4. More than six hours of examinations in one day, or
  5. Final examinations at a different institution or regular studies scheduled at the same time.

Final examinations will not be re-scheduled for reasons other than those noted above. Requests for re-scheduling of examinations must be made to your instructor two weeks before the exam. Documentation for all requests will be required, including printed examination schedules. Extenuating circumstances will only be considered with verifiable professional documentation. These include exceptional circumstances beyond a student’s control that significantly affect the student’s ability to meet requirements of a course. 

Exams & Testing Can I apply for exam deferral?
Mid-term and final examinations must be completed on the scheduled dates. Failure to write on the scheduled dates will warrant a zero on the assessment. Exam deferral requests will be considered for extenuating circumstances with proper documentation and advanced notification to the instructor and program coordinator. Final approval is at the discretion of the program coordinator. There will be no exceptions, other than under exceptional and documented circumstances or for medical-related reasons. Requests must be submitted in writing along with the required exam deferral form no later that 48 hours prior to the exam date.
Grades & Transcripts How do I get my unofficial/official transcript?

Unofficial Transcripts

Unofficial transcripts can be viewed online or downloaded by students through their account after grades are posted. Grades are posted roughly 2 to 3 weeks after the last class (or in some cases, after the last project/exam submission deadlines). Unofficial transcripts are used for students’ purposes to view grades. In some instances, students may use unofficial transcripts for employer reimbursement or sponsor reimbursement as successful proof of course completion.
