Standard of Satisfactory Academic Progress


For graduate and doctoral students, satisfactory progress toward a degree is defined as the successful completion of 20 credits applicable to that degree program during an academic year. This should include registration for at least 30 credits per year. “Successful completion” is defined as the receipt of a passing letter grade (A+ to D). Decisions on student status are made by the Provost.

As this is an online program, a student shall have the right to cancel the agreement and receive a full refund before the first lesson and materials are accessed. After the first lesson is accessed by the student, Calwest will give online access to the balance lessons and other materials to the student if he or she: (a) has fully paid for the educational program; and (b) after having received the first lesson and course materials, accesses further course materials. If the student accesses the balance of the course material for which he or she has fully paid, Calwest shall remain obligated to provide the other educational services it agreed to provide, but shall not be obligated to pay any refund after any of the balance lessons and course material are accessed.

Upon withdrawal from a course, fees will be refunded based on Calwest’s Refunds Policy.
