Academic Information

Overview

Cipriani College of Labour and Co-operative Studies strive to provide the highest quality of institutional and support services. Thus, students will be continually evaluated/assessed to ensure that standards of progress are achieved and maintained and in cases where they are not, to provide assistance to those who need it in the form of remedial work. To complete all programme requirements, students are required to meet Academic Standards of progress.

Leave of Absence

Students are permitted to apply for a leave of absence from a programme for medical, financial or other personal reasons. Such leave, however, shall not exceed a period of one (1) academic year or two semesters. Leave of absence can only be granted by the Registrar in consultation with the Head of the Department. Any absence beyond a year would require the student to re- apply for admission. The student will then be subject to all regulations and policies in existence at the time of the re-application.

Transfers

Students who wish to transfer between courses or centres, must formally make such request on a form supplied by the Admissions Department. No student will be transferred unless such transfer is officially approved by the Registrar.

Withdrawal

Students who no longer wish to attend the College must officially withdraw by completing the appropriate form. Students applying to withdraw must submit their Student ID and a completed withdrawal form to the Admissions Department.

Re-admission

To be re-admitted to CCLCS following a semester on “Academic Suspension”, a student must submit a letter to the Registrar, requesting re-admission. An appointment will be set up with the student to work out a course of action which will eventually return the student to a status of “Good Standing”. If readmitted, the student will again be placed on “Academic Probation” and all standards will apply.

Academic Probation

A student who is in the status of “Academic Warning” and who fails to achieve a GPA of 2.0 the following semester will be placed on “Academic Probation”.

Academic Warning

At the end of a semester, if the student fails to achieve at least a 2.0 GPA, he/she would be issued an Academic Warning letter. Such a student may be required to take fewer courses in the ensuing semester and may be required to repeat certain courses in which the student was unsuccessful. The student will be monitored closely until he/she has returned to a status of Academic Good Standing.

Academic Suspension

A student on probation status may be academically suspended for one of two reasons:

  • Failure to earn at least a 2.0 GPA during the semester after which he/she was placed on probation.
  • Failure to successfully complete at least 50 % of the credits attempted during the year of academic probation. Such a student will be suspended for a semester and must seek academic assistance before petitioning for permission to be re-admitted. However, students will be eligible for admission to other programmes of the College.

Repeating Courses

Students will be allowed to repeat the same course for as long as they are registered for a programme. For any course repeated, only credits from the last attempt will be used in the computation of the final grade-point average (GPA) and for meeting the graduation requirements. Students will not be allowed to repeat a course merely to improve their grade-point average after the certification has been awarded.
