Interview with the applicant and parents
A special class is defined as a subject which is not a regular offering for the semester but is needed by an irregular student to be able to graduate from his course during the semester. It may be opened at the request of students subject to the following conditions:
The students requesting for a special class are graduating at the end of the semester during which the subject is to be offered.
There should be at least 3 enrollees in a subject.
Students agree to pay 30 percent mark up on the tuition fee.
Sessions will be scheduled depending on the mutual convenience of both faculty and students, subject to the approval of the Coordinator. Special classes will be held at the SFD.
CHANGE OF REGISTRATION
Students may make changes in their schedule only with the approval of the Registrar within the first two days after the official start of classes. Unauthorized changes will not be credited.
REFUND OF FEES
Any student who desires to leave the college for valid reasons shall be entitled to a refund under the following conditions:
Notification of withdrawal should be done within the enrollment period up to 15 calendar days after the opening of regular classes.
The amount to be refunded is based on the payments made and the date of the receipt of notification of withdrawal.
If received before the opening of classes, the full amount paid excluding the Registration Fee shall be reimbursed.
If received within one week but before the 15th calendar day after the opening of classes: There shall be no refund for fees paid on installment basis. For fees paid in full, 85% of the Tuition Fees only (excluding Registration and Miscellaneous Fees) shall be reimbursed
Full payment will be charged to the student who fails to withdraw within the first fifteen (15) days from the opening of classes, whether or not he attended classes.
The School for the Deaf follows the semestral school calendar prescribed by the Commission on Higher Education.
The School for the Deaf uses the traditional system of instruction. Total Communication is the medium of instruction.
Students are expected to attend classes regularly.
Absences should not exceed 20 percent of the total hours required for a subject in a given semester. In a 3-unit subject, a maximum of 9 hours of absences shall be allowed. For a 2-unit subject, the maximum number of allowed absences is 6 hours.
Excused absences will be recorded and will be included in the accumulated absences of the students.
Any student who accumulates more than the maximum number of allowed absences in a given subject automatically receives a final mark of DRP (DROPPED).
A student is considered absent if he is not present: a. After 20 minutes of a 60 minute class b. After 30 minutes of a 90-minute or longer class
Non-attendance in any required class, laboratory work, field trip, special project or written test constitutes an absence.
When a student returns to school after an absence, he should present a letter from his parent/guardian to the SFD Coordinator who will issue a permit to be presented to the instructor. If he fails to present such letter, he may be admitted to class but should bring the required documents the following day. In case he still fails to do so, he shall be marked absent for that particular day and will be sent back to the SFD Coordinator.
A student is considered late if he arrives within 20 minutes after the scheduled start of a class.
In case when professors are late for class, students should wait for 20 minutes before leaving the class. They should also inform the office of the instructor’s absence.
Students are required to secure the examination permits one week before the examination week. The policy of NO PERMIT, NO EXAMINATION shall be implemented.
The numerical rating adopted by the Distance Education System of CAP College shall be followed.
A student who does not complete the requirement of a course within the regular time of the term shall be given a grade of “INC” (Incomplete). Each incomplete grade must be accompanied by a contract agreement agreed to by both instructor and student as to:
What work remains to be completed
How it is to be evaluated
A time indicated for completion, within but no later than, one year from the time of its incurrence.
A mark of “Incomplete” shall be replaced by a Final Grade consistent with the student’s performance in the subject in which the deficiency was incurred. If he fails to remove the deficiency within the grace period of one year, he shall be given a Final Grade of “5.0” which is a Failed mark.
Grades shall be computed as follows:
Final Grade = (Midterm + Tentative Final Grade) / 2
Midterm Grade = (Midterm Exam + Class Standing for the Midterm Period) / 2
Tentative Final Grade = (Final Exam + Class Standing for the Final Period) / 2
The following are pre-requisites for graduation:
Satisfactory completion of all academic requirements.
Residence of at least one curriculum year (36 units)
