Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy

Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy

General Requirements

Students are required to make satisfactory academic progress (SAP) toward their certificate. SAP standards apply to all students, regardless of  enrollment status  (full-time or  part-time). Students  are evaluated  at the end of every quarter.

Certificate Program students are considered in good standing if they have at least a 2.0 cumulative grade point average (CGPA). The percentage of credit hours successfully completed versus the hours attempted (pace) must be at least 75%. Accountability starts with the student’s entry date at the school and progress is assessed on a cumulative basis.

BBA Program students are considered in good standing if they have at least a 2.0 cumulative grade point average (CGPA). The percentage of credit hours  successfully  completed  versus  the  hours  attempted (pace) must be at least 75%. Accountability starts with the student’s entry date at the school and progress is assessed on a cumulative basis.

MBA program students are considered in good standing if they have at least a 3.0 cumulative grade point average (CGPA). The percentage of credit hours  successfully  completed  versus  the  hours  attempted (pace) must be at least 75%. Accountability starts with the student’s entry date at the school and progress is assessed on a cumulative basis.

Late Assignments

Late assignments may result in lower grades. This will be determined by the professor in each course.

Grades and Grade Points

Student performance in courses is indicated by one of following grades. Grades carry point value and are used in determining the CGPA. Point values are as follows:

 

GradePoint% Definition

A4.090-95%Excellent
B+3.586-89%Very Good
B3.080-85%Good
C+2.576-79%Above Average
C2.070-75%Average
F0.0≤69%Failing

How Cumulative Grade Point Average is Determined

CALIMT determines a student’s cumulative grade point average (CGPA) by dividing the total amount of grade points earned by the total amount of credit hours attempted. Grade point averages may range from 0.0 to a 4.5, as noted in the above table. Below is an example of how to determine CGPA.
