Legal Information

Transfer of Credit by Examination

Hubbard College of Administration International does not accept credits from other educational institutions. A student who has previous relevant education may apply for Credit by Examination. To be eligible to apply for Credits by Examination, applicants must enroll in a program through the standard enrollment process. Students who want the College to accept their previously taken course(s) for credit, must take the examination(s) before starting the course. The school cannot fairly assess the applicant once that student begins his or her educational program.

The following criteria must be met for Credit by Examination:

1. A student applying for a transfer of credit must pass a comprehensive examination covering the course material.

2. The comprehensive examination may only be taken once and must be passed with a score of 85% or higher in order to receive credit. The student does not have to retake the course with a score of 85% but must restudy the areas missed on the exam. There will not be a tuition charge for restudying these areas. An examination fee of $30.00 is charged for each examination administered.

3. Tuition is charged for credit awarded by examination at the rate of 50% of the normal tuition.

4. If the exam score is less than 85%, the student must retake the course and is charged the full tuition rate for the course.

5. Credits by Examination are not included in the calculation of the Cumulative Quality Point Average but are included in the credits necessary for graduation.

6. Credit by Examination evaluations will be given during the pre-scheduled examination time established by the Qualifications Division.

7. Credit by Examination is a comprehensive examination and will cover all aspects of the subject.

8. The student’s academic record will be clearly annotated to reflect that credit was earned by examination.

9. The maximum amount of credit by examination which Hubbard College of Administration will accept toward any theory course is unlimited. If a student feels he/she has enough knowledge or practical experience on the subject being examined for credit then he or she can attempt to test their knowledge and receive credit for the course pursuant to the criteria indicated. However, no practical application course (apprenticeship, internship or final practical application) shall be credited by an examination only.


Process for Addressing Student Grievances

Any student who has a complaint should direct his or her complaint to the Qualifications Secretary at the Hubbard College of Administration either in person or in writing. The Qualifications Secretary will have the authority to investigate the compliant, make a determination as to the appropriate handling required, and see that the appropriate handling is carried out. If the student feels that he is not getting a satisfactory resolution of his or her complaint from the Qualifications Secretary he may always directly communicate with the President of the Hubbard College of Administration in person or in writing. Any questions or problems concerning this school that have not been satisfactorily answered or resolved by the school should be directed to the Bureau for Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education, 400 R Street, Suite 5000, Sacramento, California 95184, (916) 445-3427.

Attendance Policy

Students are expected to attend courses according to the schedule upon which they have agreed. All Supervisors keep daily records of attendance. It is the student’s responsibility to inform his or her course supervisor of an unavoidable absence. The course supervisor may refuse to admit a student on course that is chronically absent or tardy.

Excused Absence: An absence will be considered excused only if the time is made up during another regular course slot that is supervised by the course supervisor. Attendance is recorded. All other absences will be considered unexcused.

Unexcused Absence: All absences that are not made up during normal course time hours under supervision of the course supervisor are unexcused absences.

No absence will be removed from a student’s record but will be recorded as excused or unexcused per the above definitions.

Students with excessive absenteeism, which is defined as 3 unexcused absences in a month, will be placed on attendance probation unless the student has a medical condition which will require a doctor’s note. During the attendance probation if the student continues to have unexcused absences exceeding three he or she will be dismissed. Attendance probation will last for a period of one month. If the student demonstrates good attendance within the attendance policy the probation will be removed.

Re-Enrollment: will be considered by the Executive Council only after evidence is shown that the condition which caused the interuption for unsatisfactory attendance has been rectified.


Re-admission Procedures

If you were previously dismissed, you must obtain the signature of the Executive Council Chairperson and clarify any re-admission requirements.

Revocation of Admission

Admission to study at Hubbard College of Administration International is a privilege. The College reserves the right to withdraw this privilege at any time it may appear to be in the best interest of the student or the College to do so.
