F1 policies: refund and academic progress
CCLS Refund Policy – F-1 Status Students
Refund Eligibility and Payment
Attendance is calculated in weeks. Partial attendance in any week is considered a complete week of attendance.
Refund payments will be made within forty-five (45) calendar days of the date of determination, which is the date the student withdrawals or the date on which CCLS terminates the student for being absent for 30 consecutive calendar days (excepting school recess) or due to the student’s failure to adhere to the institution’s attendance, or policies.
In all refund cases, excepting if CCLS cancels a course) the student forfeits any discounts based on prepayment of multiple courses. All other discounts are also considered voided. Courses taken will be recalculated based on the full tuition fee, without discounts.
CCLS retains student records for three (3) years after the last day of attendance (LDA) or the first scheduled class date (FSCD). Students are entitled to applicable refunds up to three (3) years after the students’ LDA or FSCD.
Students who paid their fees through educational or travel agents will receive their applicable refund fees from the agent, not from CCLS. CCLS will not be held responsible for any engagements students have entered with educational or travel agents. However, CCLS will ensure and document that the refund has been made on behalf of the student to the agent.
Credit card payments made to CCLS Miami will be credited to the same credit card account. All other forms of payment will be refunded via a CCLS check or wire transfer, at CCLS’ discretion, minus bank and courier fees.
CCLS Academic Progress Policy – F-1 Status Students
CCLS wants you to enjoy the maximum benefit from your language program; therefore, you will be expected to maintain an 80% cumulative attendance. Tardiness or early departures over 15 minutes will be noted on your record. Three tardies or early departures will be recorded as one absence.
Besides your active participation in class, you are expected to do assignments in a timely fashion. Those exercises are an integral part of your language program and will help you assimilate the new structures and vocabulary more effectively. Completion of all work assigned by your teachers is mandatory.
Student Evaluation and Advancement
At the end of the course, you will be evaluated by means of written and oral exams, as well as your attendance, participation in class and homework completion. The weight of each component of your final grade is as follows:
EEC 1-13 Courses (Monday/Wednesday/Friday: CSK 1-13 Courses (Tuesday/Thursday)
EEC – English for Effective Communication CSK – Communication Skills
The passing grade is 70%. Students enrolled in the Intensive English Program (EEC + CSK courses) will receive one final average grade. The EEC courses represent 70%, while the CSK courses represent 30%. The minimum passing grade in each exam is 65, regardless the final grade average. Students who obtain between 60 and 64 grades on their midterm or final exams will be allowed to retake their tests.
Low attendance (below 80%) and low finals grades (below 70%) may result in termination of the F-1 status.
