COMMITTEE ON ACADEMIC APPEALS
At Global College, we value the quality of education. Thus, we monitor our student’s academic performance including records of attendance. If a student fails to attend classes in five (5) consecutive days without prior notice, a student will receive a written warning from the Learner’s Training department. Instructors will call the attention of the student and will discuss the Academic Goals to Success Form. This form will help the student develop a plan for achieving a good academic standing.
Academic Action plan is required from the concerned student. This will determine the student’s commitment to succeed or complete the course of study. Student will be given a grace period to submit missing lab works, assignments and quizzes. Failure to comply with reporting due date, the student will get a failing mark. And the student will retake the course.
