Grading

Grading is on a pass/fail basis. Students must pass all practical exams and complete all required muscle charts, massage logs, class project, anatomy workbook, and other related materials that may be given. Grades will be recorded on the student’s Course Record Tracking sheet. The course is graded as pass/fail at 75%.

If the student is placed on academic probation for poor performance, he/she must bring his/her overall average grade to 75% within a period of no more than 30 days. The student must then maintain this level of performance thereafter. If said criteria are not met within the 30 days, the student may drop and complete the course the following semester. Tuition must be paid in full before the return date, or they cannot complete the course. If the student does not meet this standard, they will forfeit their certification and still be responsible for tuition balance.

Rules of Conduct

Appropriate attire is required. No short shorts, skirts, high heels or boots. No tank tops, belly shirts, or low cut blouses. T-shirts with comfortable slacks(i.e., yoga pants) or surgical scrubs preferred. Short sleeve shirts are best. You may wear tank tops as long as they cover the shoulders and do not have spaghetti straps. Hygiene is a MUST. Deodorant is a MUST. Clean, short fingernails are required (no colored polish). Students must be clean and odor-free. Do not wear strong cologne or perfume due to potential allergies. If any student does not comply with these codes and rules, they will be subject to dismissal.
