To ensure the quality of instruction to students, the following attendance and probation policies have been established
Any student absent 3 or more unexcused days, with 3 tardies equaling 1 day, will be terminated. A tardy takes place when a student is 5 minutes late. More than two hours will be an unexcused absence. (When excess absences are excused, each student may re-enroll in a future class session to finish the course). Excused absences via Dr notes and prior approval from OSHS.
ALL MISSED WORK MUST BE MADE UP!! Students will make up missed work within one week of the due date of the assignment. Students will get with the instructors to come up with their specific date for make-up work. The instructors will be available to oversee the assignments/testing.
Any Student who does not make up work or is in excess of the allowed days missed and those days are not excused will be terminated from the course. These students will not be allowed to re-enroll or return to the course and monies will be forfeited.>
Other Causes for termination include excessive abuse of OSHS Policies including, but not limited to insubordination, alcohol or drug use, destruction of property, and/or serious misconduct.
OSHS will NOT restart a student that is terminated for any of these reasons and tuition will not be refunded. (This does not apply to students using VA Benefits.)
Students will be placed on probation if their average drops below a 75% average. These students will be evaluated at the end of the first two weeks and weekly from that point forward. Students with a grade of below 75% for more than three weeks in a row with be dismissed from the program with no re-entry. No money will be refunded if student is dismissed unless they are on VA Benefits
If a student makes the personal decision to withdraw training at OSHS, he/she will need to notify Director or Owner in writing immediately. Upon written notification of withdrawal, the Director will calculate the days attended and refund any monies due to student within 30 days.
Any Veteran, service member or student attending class on VA Benefits can interrupt or suspend training due to military service obligations. Students will be readmitted at our first available start date that the student is available for.
If a student has to leave due to personal, medical, or financial reasons and wants to return in a future class session to finish the course a re-entry is taken in place. The school will provide a re-entry form to the student to sign at their own discretion. The document will be placed in the students file to be retained the day they return to class. All re-entries must take place with-in one year of the LOA and are subject to class availability.
All Complaints should be brought to the attention of the Director. Complaints and appeals should be well documented in writing and submitted to the Director prior to appealing to any off-campus authority. Should OSHS not be able to resolve a student complaint, the student has the right to contact agencies and authorities outside the school. Complaints can be filed with the following agencies:
