This course provides an overview of the required and optional elements of an institutional satisfactory academic progress policy. Learning topics focus on calculating pace, student appeals, the impact of transfer credits, and the use of academic plans. Presentations, discussion topics, and homework assignments reinforce key course concepts. A credential is provided after successfully completing and passing the credential test, which is available at the conclusion of the course and included in your course fee.
NASFAA University courses are 100% online with an asynchronous focus, meaning the individual attendee can log on anytime/anyplace (assuming they have Internet access) and participate in course requirements – naturally there are due dates they will need to adhere to, i.e. weekly assignments that must be completed. There are also weekly synchronous class meetings held one night per week at 6pm ET (schedule to be released soon). However, these “live” classes are optional and recorded for on-demand viewing by the course attendee. While there will be no grade reductions for students that do not attend these live classes, we do encourage attendance to due to the highly collaborative nature of the courses.
