Advancement to the next TOEFL preparation course

Each TOEFL student needs to take a final test at the end of TOEFL Preparation I to advance to TOEFL Preparation II. The tests include oral (spoken) and written exams. Advancement to TOEFL Preparation II is determined by passing grade at the final test of TOEFL Preparation I and passing the criteria for homework, quizzes and attendance. If a student receives an “F” or a “D” grade and/ or less than 80% attendance at the end of TOEFL Preparation I and/or II, he/she will be put on probation and has to repeat the failing course and pay the cost of repeated course. If the student fails the course again, he/she will be terminated from the program. To successfully complete one course, the student should have minimum of “C” grade or “2.0” GPA grade point average with 80% attendance. The student will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the course.
