ACADEMIC DISHONESTY POLICY
The giving and/or receiving of improper help on assignments or examinations, falsification of records, plagiarism, and any other forms of academic dishonesty are unacceptable. Dismissal from the school is among a variety of penalties that can result from dishonesty. The student will be penalized according to the degree of dishonesty involved and may not be readmitted into any course in the future.
Student(s) must attend all scheduled classes each day and be punctual. If one needs to be absent while in training due to an emergency, you must call the school. More than two absences are unacceptable. You must make up all absences, missed quizzes, or exams; the instructor reserves the right to administer an alternate version of an exam/quiz when make-ups are administered.
The student will be marked late if they are not within the classrooms 15 minutes after the commencement of a given class. Three times lateness would be recorded as a clock hour absence and a student who is absent for more than 2 days of the program length and has not maintained satisfactory progress may be dismissed.
Professional decorum and manner are always expected (Dress, attitude, etc.) Scrubs uniform shirt and pants should always be worn while training. No hats or headgears are allowed.

TRIPLE “A”: Academic, Attendance, Attitude.
The student’s eligibility for continued participation and graduation is based on a permanent record of course performance maintained. This record includes results of attendance, examinations, and as appropriate, practical skill tests, class participation, completion of assigned projects, and clinical performance. Any student, whose final grade average is below 70%, fails to complete all required components of the curriculum, or fails to meet their financial obligations to the school, will not be issued a Diploma. A 2.0 Grade Point Average (GPA) or higher is required to stay enrolled and for graduation. Students who fail to progress or successfully achieve passing grades will be retested. The following conventional percentiles represent the grading system for all classes.
|Passing||90-100%||A = 4.0|
|Passing||80-89%||B = 3.0|
|Passing||70-79%||C = 2.0|

How can a complaint be filed by a student or employee?
The steps you must take to file a complaint are:
- Contact the State Education Department in Albany or New York City (Address and telephone appear at the end of the catalog), to request a complaint form, or send a letter about your complaint. Describe in as much detail as possible why you believe you have a complaint and describe who did what, when, and where. Try to be as specific as possible. Include your full name, address, and telephone number, and the name and the address of the school.
- Send the completed complaint form or letter describing the complaint to the New York State Education Department. You should do this as soon as possible, but no later than one (1) year after the action(s) you are complaining about.
- Speak to the investigator-shortly after you file your complaint you may be contacted by someone from the New York Education Department. You should cooperate with that person, and provide any information requested as soon as possible. A delay in providing information may result in your complaint not being fully investigated.
- Wait for an answer -the State Education Department must decide about your complaint within 60 days after it is officially received. This determination will be in writing and will be sent to you.
You may wish to try and resolve your complaint directly with the school. If so, use the school’s internal procedure or discuss your problem with teachers, department heads, or the school director.
