Late Student Policy and Procedure

Policy Statement

A student cannot 'make up' any weeks missed in a course while simultaneously attending the same course.

Examples

If the student missed 2 weeks due to sickness or emergency etc., then the student receives and 'I' grade at the end of the school. After the school has ended, then the student has the opportunity to complete the 2 weeks missed. That can be done in a variety of ways, however, each scenario must meet the requirements of a "Learning Week" complete with curriculum content, qualified leadersip/oversight, assignments, one on ones, evaluation etc. as would be true for any "Learning Week" of a course in the U of N.

Possible examples for making up weeks that a student missed in a U of N school:

  • The student may return to the same YWAM/U of N course operating location for 2 weeks at the end of the school (or at another designated time mutually agreed upon) with a qualified staff member (preferably from the original school, or the upcoming school) who creates and supervises 2 full learning weeks of the specific curriculum content that was missed by the student, in addition to other learning activities, assignments and evaluation that is necessary. This course work must be completed within a maximum time period of 2 years.
  • The student may return to the same YWAM/U of N course operating location at another time in the future when the same school is running and apply to the school leader to then take specifically the 2 weeks of missed curriculum in the original school. This course work must be completed within a maximum time period of 2 years.
  • The student applies to join the same school at another YWAM/U of N operating location to make up the specific 2 weeks of the course that they missed in their original school. This course work must be completed within a maximum time period of 2 years.

When any of the above are completed, the school leader/staff member is to file the FORM C1 (if it is a lecture phase) or C2 (if it is a field assignment phase) to record and report the student's 2 week course makeup and a file a 'Correction Form' with the appropriate International Registrar's Office so that the student's 'I' grade is changed to what ever grade he/she is to receive for the total course based on appropriate evaluation of the completed course. The student then will receive U of N credit for completion of the U of N school.
