* Students not meeting standards are not eligible for financial aid, may
not be placed on probation, but may be placed in an extended
enrollment status. A student will not be charged tuition and fees
while in extended enrollment for the first time. Should a student be
placed in extended enrollment more than once, he/she will be
charged tuition and fees for each additional extended enrollment
period.

** Student not meeting standards will be placed on probation and will


remain eligible for Title IV Aid.

Students may be placed on academic probation for one term. During


the quarter of the student’s academic probation, the Dean may require
the student to repeat some or all of the courses that the student previously
failed. Students placed on academic probation must have a grade
point average of at least 2.0 at the end of the probationary quarter, and
must complete a minimum of 60 percent of a normal class load during
the quarter to avoid suspension. If the student does not have a grade
point average of at least 2.0 at the end of the probationary quarter,
the student shall also be suspended from school for one quarter, unless
mitigating circumstances exist.

If a student demonstrates after retaking courses that he or she is
academically and motivationally prepared to continue in a program,
the student may be reinstated as a regular student. The Director must
approve reinstatement, and the reinstatement is based on evaluations
made by instructors who are familiar with the work of the student. If
reinstated as a regular student, the student will be placed on probation
until the next evaluation.

Grades earned as a regular student or during the continuation period as


a non-regular student may be substituted for the previous course failures
in the calculation of the student’s GPA and successful course completion
rate for graduation purposes. However, in no case may the student
extend as a regular student beyond 1.5 times the normal program length
in order to complete the program.

An incomplete or “I” grad will be give to a student who does not


completely fulfill the requirements of a course. A grade may be
substituted for the “I” grade if the student successfully completes the
unfinished course work within two weeks after the start of the following
term. In a case where extreme extenuating circumstances exist, a
two-week extension may be approved at the discretion of the Director.
Medical, legal, or other documentation is required. Failure to complete
the work required for a course in the period required above will result
in the letter grade of “F.” A letter grade “W” will result when a student
withdraws from the course. Letter grades of “I”, “W”, or “F” are counted
as hours attempted, not successfully completed. When the “I” is replaced
with a letter grade, the GPA and satisfactory progress will be recalculated
based on the letter grade.

The director may grant a leave of absence and/or waive interim


satisfactory standards for circumstances of poor health, family crisis, or
other significant occurrences outside the control of the student. These
circumstances must be documented, and it must be demonstrated
by the student that these conditions had an adverse impact on the
student’s satisfactory progress in the academic program. No waivers
will be provided for graduation requirements.

Any student certified as not demonstrating satisfactory academic progress


has the opportunity to appeal the action. Appeals must be made in
writing to the director. Each appeal evaluation is an individual judgment
based on that student’s record and personal circumstances. Successful
student appeals will result in an appropriate individual adjustment to
the satisfactory progress policy. If the appeal is approved, the student
will continue in school. The student will have one quarter to correct all
academic deficiencies. If the deficiencies are not corrected, the student
shall be dismissed.

In addition to the above standards, students must complete requirements


necessary to obtain their degree/diploma/certificate within a maximum
timeframe of 1.5 times the standard program length. Students may
continue in extended enrollment status after they have been determined
not to have been making satisfactory academic progress and have been
informed of and agree in writing to the following:
(1) Students are not eligible for additional student aid in extended
enrollment status.
(2) Students are responsible for all tuition and fees with the school
while in extended enrollment status.
(3) Students must seek to correct academic deficiencies while in
extended enrollment status.
At no time can a student exceed 1.5 times the standard timeframe either
as a regular student or extended enrollment status and receive the original
academic credential for which they enrolled. They may receive a
Certificate of Completion. At 100 percent of the maximum timeframe,
students must have achieved a 2.0 GPA.

Grading
1. The following grading scale is used.
A Excellent....................................90% to 100%...............................4.00
A* No QPA Computed.................90% to 100%...............................0.00
B Good.........................................80% to 89%.................................3.00

TR Transfer Credit...........................Credit Granted..........................0.00
NC Non Credit.................................Credit Withheld.........................0.00
AU Audited Class............................Credit Withheld.........................0.00
W Withdrawal................................Credit Withheld.........................0.00

A student will receive a “W” if he or she withdraws before


the sixth week; after the sixth week, the student will receive
an “F” for the course.

2. The grading scale will be on the transcript, so employers


may judge the quality of students’ work.

3. Cheating will not be tolerated. Our diplomas and degrees


have value; we do not want someone who cheats to have
one. When you cheat as an adult, you cheat yourself by
not obtaining skills for the workplace. If you cheat and
receive your degree, you cheat your fellow students and our
institution, because you would be representing us without
obtaining the skills we attempted to teach you. If you are
caught cheating the first time, you fail the class; second
time, you are terminated from this institution.

4. Each student is named to the Dean’s list at the end of each


quarter if he/she maintains an average of 3.5 or higher.

11
Course Numbering System
The course numbering system consists of 100 and 200 level
courses. The 100 level courses are taken in the first academic
year, and 200 level courses are taken in the second academic
year.

Unit of Credit/School Year
Newport Business Institute uses the quarter hour as its unit of
credit. A standard quarter hour of credit is equal to 16 hours of
lecture, 20 hours of lab, or 30 hours of practicum (externship).
Laboratory classes are instructor led using the show them-tell
them-involve them teaching philosophy. Each term is twelve
weeks in length. In lab classes the teacher acts as a facilitator.
Learning contracts are used when necessary. Assignments
are made with deadlines given. While classes are laboratory
in nature, students are given daily assignments. A student is
considered to be full-time attendance when carrying a minimum
of 12 quarter-credit hours per quarter. A school year is defined
as three terms (or quarters). Externship credit evaluation involves
30 contact hours per externship unit of credit.

The above paragraph applies only to those programs operated


on a quarter-term basis. For those programs operated on a
non-term basis, the following applies:

A standard hour of credit equals 16 hours of lecture, 20 hours


of lab, or 30 hours of practicum (externship). The institution
measures and awards credit based on the number of credit
hours completed. A school year and grade level are defined
as a minimum of 36 quarter credit hours or a maximum of 45
quarter credit hours.

Scholastic Recognition
Associate in Specialized Business Degrees are awarded
for specified 21-month or 24-month programs; diplomas
are awarded for 6-month, 9-month or 12-month programs;
certificates are awarded for classes completed.

Student Conduct/Termination &


Dismissal
In addition to unsatisfactory grades, a student will be suspended
or expelled for unacceptable behavior, malicious damage
or theft of school property, disorderly or disruptive conduct,
excessive absences, and the use, sale or possession of illegal
drugs, narcotics, alcohol or any other controlled substances.
Newport reserves the right to suspend or permanently dismiss
any student whose conduct is detrimental to the training
environment. We further reserve the right to dismiss any
student whose conduct, work, or attendance is for any reason
unsatisfactory. A student may also be dismissed for financial
delinquency. Students are expected to conduct themselves in
a manner consistent with the best interest of their own careers,
the entire student body and the school administration.

Business Administration

Management
Awards the Associate in Specialized Business Degree

The success or failure of business enterprises depends heavily on


the way managers do their jobs. Primarily, the job of the manager
in business is to plan and direct the work of others. Since these
“others” are usually doing specialized work, it is required that
the manager has experience in, and a broad knowledge of,
the specific functions he or she is supervising. Some of the more
common areas are accounting, advertising, sales, personnel,
production, purchasing, data processing, market research, and
public relations. The Business Administration Program is designed
to allow for acquiring a broad background in these areas.

Business Administration

Medical Management
Awards the Associate in Specialized Business Degree

The success or failure of business enterprises depends heavily


on the way managers do their jobs. Primarily, the job of the
manager in business is to plan and direct the work of others.
Since these “others” are usually doing specialized work, it is
required that the manager has experience in, and a broad
knowledge of, the specific functions he or she is supervising.
Some of the more common areas are hospitals, doctors’ offices,
nursing homes and other medical-related facilities. This program
is designed to allow for acquiring a broad background in these
areas.
