Attendance Policy:  Full Stack Development Certificate Only

In order to ensure the students’ progress meets completion requirements, the following attendance is required.

Each student’s term is 13 weeks (8 hours/day, M-F) or 26 weeks (4 hours/day, M-F) in length and determined by the start and end dates signed on the enrollment agreement.  Students must not miss more than 40 hours during the 13-week or 26-week term to prevent being dismissed directly due to attendance. Students must also have completed 55% of the program by the midpoint of the course dates. (week 7 for the 13-week/week 14 for the 26-week.

Students who are behind at the 55% mark or fall behind more than 10% at any given time, must participate in remediation which consists of the following steps:

a) official notification of unsatisfactory progress with the student committing to an academic progress plan (email and follow-up call, from program administration), then, the following if no improvement,

b) official notification of unsatisfactory progress from Academic Dean and follow-up call,

and finally,

c) the student may be academically withdrawn. (Extenuating circumstances must be approved by Academic Dean.)

Part Time Progression

Full Stack Development Program

The Full Stack Development program term length is ten months for part time students and determined by the start and end dates signed on the enrollment agreement. Students must complete Coding Foundations (prerequisite) in the first month to be able to proceed in the Full Stack Development Certificate program in the second month. The following progression is the suggested benchmark achievements to keep the student on track.  However, the student will be evaluated monthly on progression through to the end of the program at month ten.  The measurement of completion (attainment of benchmark) will be recorded at the end of each month.

Monthly Benchmark Percentage Percent Completion
Month 1 10% –  Coding Foundations completed
Month 2 15% completion by the EOM
Month 3 20% completion by the EOM
Month 4 35% completion by the EOM
Month 5 45% completion by the EOM
Month 6 55% completion by the EOM
Month 7 70% completion by the EOM
Month 8 85% completion by the EOM
Month 9 95% completion by the EOM
Month 10 (including Capstone) 100% completion by the EOM

Students who fall behind the suggested benchmarks must participate in remediation.   Students who are behind at the 55% mark or falls behind more than 10% at any given time, must participate in remediation which consists of the following steps:

a) official notification of unsatisfactory progress with the student committing to an academic progress plan (email and follow-up call, from program administration), then,

b) official notification of unsatisfactory progress from Academic Dean and follow-up call,

and finally

c) the student may be academically withdrawn. (Extenuating circumstances must be approved by Academic Dean.)
