A student on academic probati o n has a maximum of 40 weeks to raise the cumulative average above the min i - mum standard, either by completing additional courses or repeating courses bearing inadequate grades. When an unde r gradua t e course is repeated, the original grade is replaced by the subsequent course grade. The cost for repeating a course may vary; contact the college for a determination. Academic suspension will follow only if a student is unable to return to active status within six months. Suspended students may apply for readmission to the college after a period of one yea r . Repeating Courses In most cases a student may not take or receive unit credit for a course for which the student has already received a grade of C or bette r . This principle applied whether the course was initially taken at W exford Universit y , at a high school, or at another college or universit y . The only exceptions to this rule are: (1) when a course has been specifically designated as repeatable for credit up to a specific maximum number of units; (2) uppe r -division courses in an unde r graduate student ’ s major completed more than ten years prior to the student ’ s graduation; and (3) courses on a graduate student ’ s program of study tak- en more than seven years prior to graduation.

Post baccalaureate students pursuing credential pro- grams, certifica t e programs, or maste r ’ s degrees are not eligible for the Repeat and Delete polic y . Eligible students may repeat a course once for the purpose of deleting a grade, without prior departmental approval, if the course was taken both ti m es at W exford Universi- t y . If the second attempt of the course is successful (“C” or better), the deletion of the first attempt is automatica l - ly calc u lated at the end of the term in which the course was repeated. Although the first grade will remain on the permanent record, the grade and grade points of the repeated course on the second attempt will be those used in deter m ining the grade-point average and units earned, providing the second grade was C or bette r . If students wish to exclude from grade-point determin a - tion a grade of “D”, “F”, “I” or “W” in a course taken at another institution, they may do so by enrolling in an equivalent course approved by W exford Universit y . A “Notice of Intent to Repeat a T ransfer Course” form must be filed with the University Registrars Office. Academic Disqualification Students who have been placed on academic probation may be disqualified from further attendance if: The conditions for removal of academic prob a - tion are not met within the period specified; The students become subject to academic pr o - bation while on academic probation; The students become subject to academic pr o - bation for the same or similar reason for which they have been placed on academic probation previousl y , although not currently in such status. For students who subsequently become eligible for Re- instatement, disqualification under the provisions of the preceding paragraphs constitutes a break in “continuous enrollment” within a degree program; therefore, student disqualification may not elect regulations in e f fect prior to disqualification. Attendance Policy W exford University is 100% online. No travel is need- ed. Y ou can fit your coursework into your schedule by completing course requirements within the term. Y ou will work closely with your Faculty Mentor to assure that all work is completed, but you never have to attend a class- room on campus. Grade Point A verage The aca d emic standing of a student is expressed in terms of a grade point average (G P A). A grade point average is computed by dividing the total number of grade points earned at W exford University by the total number of units attempted at W exford Universit y . Grading System & Grading Policy W exford University records grades for completed courses onl y . Incomplete coursework will not be recorded. The following system of grading is used. A = 4.0 B = 3.0 C = 2.0 D = 1.0 F = 0.0 Grading Scale Plagiarism If it is determined by a student ’ s Instructor or other sta f f membe r , that plagiarism has occurred, the student will not receive credit for that course. If plagiarism occurs, the student will be put on probationary status up to and T otal Points Letter Grade Pe r centage Grade Point 930-1000 A 93-100% 4.0 900-929 A- 90-92% 3.7 870-899 B+ 87-89% 3.3 830-869 B 83-86% 3.0 800-829 B- 80-82% 2.7 770-799 C+ 77-79% 2.3 730-769 C 73-76% 2.0 700-729 C- 70-72% 1.7 670-699 D+ 67-69% 1.3 600-669 D 60-66% 1.0 000-599 F 0-59% 0.0

This allows students to register and begin their degree program at anytime of the yea r . The University defines reasonable academic progress as the successful completion of one course every 20 weeks. Though students determine their lesson completion goals and set their own study schedules, W exford University expects students to actively pursue their studies and reg u - larly submit coursework. A.A. degrees have an estimated completion time of 12 - 24 months B.S. degrees have an estimated completion time of 12 - 24 months M.A./M.S. degrees have an estimated completion time of 12 - 16 months Ed.D. degrees have an estimated completion time of 24 - 36 months The maximum time for complet i ng an associate ’ s d e - gree program is 48 months The maximum time for comple t ing a bachelo r ’ s d e - gree program is 48 months The maximum time for completing a maste r ’ s degree program is 36 months. The maximum time for compl e ting a doctorate d e - gree program is 60 months. If a student enrolled in a degree program finds it neces- sar y , they may request a 3-month extension of time upon payment of a $1,000 administrative fee. Extensions must be conti n uous. If a student has not completed their degree in the allowed time or fails to maintain their tuition exte n - sions, then they must re-apply for admission. Extension of Deg r ee P r ogram Occasionally students encounter personal challenges for difficulties while enrolled at W exford University that pr e - vent them from completing all course requirements wit h - in a three (3) month period. Under these circumstances, students may be granted a three month extension of time upon payment of a reduced tuition payment (see financial information section). Receiving an academic extension in no way suspends any financial obligations students may have to the college.

Applying this knowledge, students will experience practical a p - plications of cardiorespiratory exercise prescription on various training modalities applied to a wide range of settings. Prerequisites: KIN 1 13C or equivalent KIN 219 Concepts in Power T raining (4 units) The concept of power training is another misunderstood subject in the training industr y . Power is nothing more than the “rate of doing W ork” i.e. power is equal to work divided by time. Power is not just training fast and explo- sively: it also involves sustained rates of work such as en- durance events where a level of work is being performed at a constant rate but is still a specific power output. This course will educate the student as to what power truly is, how it is defined, and how one can ascertain the pow- er output of a particular activit y . This information will be useful for development and utilization of the type of strength training one needs to use in order to increase the specific type of power output necessary for an activit y . The information presented will be from numerous tex t - books along with various train i ng articles from various sources.

The University was founded in 1999, originally under the name Optimal Performance Institute, and has been continuously approved by the State of California to o f fer unde r graduate and graduate level degrees. School Code: 4306651 In accordance with the provisions of California Educ a - tion Code 94900 mid/or 94915, this institution had re- ceived approval to operate from the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education. That approval to operate meant that the Bureau determined and certified that the instit u - tion met the minimum standards for integrit y , financial stabilit y , and educational qualit y , including the o f fering of bona fide instruction by qualified faculty and the a p - propriate assessment of students’ achievement prior to, during, and at the end of its programs. T o earn approved status in California, a degree-granting institution must unde r go a qual i tative review and assess- ment of programs o f fered and of all institutional policies, procedures, and operations. The assessment is conducted by a comprehensive on-site review process performed by a qualified visiti n g committee composed of educators and other appropriate experts. Most countries do not have independent o r ganizations for which schools can seek accreditation. Rathe r , they are granted status by a government agency such as what the state of California and the Department of Education requires. In the United States, the Department of Edu- cation does not require accredi t ation by any accrediting bod y , nor is accreditation governed by the government. U.S. ac c reditati o n o r ganizations are a private institutio n - alized board which grants a peer review status and ap- proval to universities that pursue this course of action on a voluntary basis. The biggest benefit is federal funding for schools. Please note that regardless of accreditation, the transfer of credits between all universities (whether state approved or accredited), is determined by the sp e - cific policies of the universities and determined on a case- by-case basis. W exford University is California Corporation. A degree program that is unaccredited or a degree from an unaccredited institution is not recognized for some employment positions, including, but not limited to, posi- tions with the State of California.
