Program Policies

Certificates

Students who successfully complete the program of study, which entails earning a minimum of B- for every course taken in both the Fall and Spring semesters, will receive a Certificate of Completion. The following provisions apply:

  • If a student misses three sessions of a given course (e.g., three sessions of Practicum, APA, or Educational Linguistics) throughout the academic year, or less than three but does not perform satisfactorily in one or more courses, s/he will NOT receive a Certificate of Attendance.

  • If a student misses four or more sessions of a given course (e.g., three sessions of Practicum, APA, or Educational Linguistics) throughout the academic year, s/he will NOT receive any type of certificate.

  • If a student misses the first two sessions of the program due to delays in obtaining an entry visa, s/he must make up for those sessions in the following academic year, and only thereafter will s/he be awarded a Certificate of Completion or a Certificate of Attendance, depending on his/her performance. 

Plagiarism

Plagiarism of any form, including copying from the Internet, is strictly prohibited. Individuals who plagiarize will face disciplinary action including a warning from the instructor and a substantial grade reduction. Repeated offenses will lead to expulsion from the program.
