A student must meet the following minimum standards of educational achievement and successful course completion while enrolled at the North America Technical Institute. The Institute re-quires 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 700 clock hours, the student may not attempt more than 1050 clock hours (1.5 x 700).
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 Campus Director 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.
