TESTING PROCEDURES

Placement tests are administered to all new students. The test scores are used to assist in advising students concerning programs, courses, and streaming.

TRANSFER OF CREDITS

It is the policy of Galilee College to accept credits gained at institutes Registered by The Ministry of Education and other Accrediting bodies. However, all courses being transferred in must be equivalent to those offered by Galilee College. Credits are ONLY accepted in the form of an official transcript properly sealed by the institution and sent directly to Galilee College. The College will not transfer in more than 60% of the courses required for any program.

PROFICIENCY EXAMINATIONS

Proficiency examinations for any course offered at Galilee College are administered upon request by the student for such examinations. The student must make a grade 'C' or better in order to receive a credit for the course. For a student to receive a diploma or degree issued through Galilee College, at least sixty-percent (40%) of the work completed must be through Galilee College.

CLASS ATTENDANCE

Students are to attend each class session on time. Regular class absentees can result in either lower grades or dismissal from that particular class. The maximum time allowed for absences is five sessions.

ACADEMIC SUSPENSION

Any student who does not achieve a cumulative GRADE POINT AVERAGE (G.P.A.) of "2.00" for two consecutive semesters will be placed on academic suspension during the next semester. A suspended student can re-enroll in any semester following the Semester of suspension. During that semester of re-enrollment, the student will be placed on academic probation.

DISMISSAL

A student on probation failing to receive a '2.00' G.P.A in any semester following suspension will be dismissed. Any student whose behaviour is in violation of the college's rules and regulations or is deemed unfit for the college will be dismissed without notice or warning.

REPEATING A COURSE

A student with a "D" or "F" grade may repeat a course. If the "F" grade is a requirement, then that course must be repeated. Both grades, original and repeated, will appear on the permanent academic record, but only the higher grade will be calculated in the grade point average and in meeting graduation requirements.

AUDITING A COURSE

The fee is $60 per credit hour, no grades or credits are awarded. A student can convert to credit status by applying to the Registrar prior to mid-term. At that point, the balance of the full tuition must be paid.
