Standards for Satisfactory Progress

Satisfactory Academic Progress

All students (full and part-time) must meet the following minimum standards of academic achievement and successful course completion to remain in attendance at Hunter Business School and continue to receive federal student aid. Hunter Business School will consider both a student’s grade point average (qualitative progress) and rate of progression (pace) through his or her program (quantitative progress). A student’s progress will be evaluated at the end of each payment period to determine satisfactory academic progress. At the end of each payment, period an evaluation of the student’s pace will be completed to determine if the student can successfully complete the program within the maximum timeframe of 150% of the standard program length.

Pace

A student must progress through his or her program at a pace of 67% or higher. Pace is calculated by dividing the cumulative number of successfully completed hours by the cumulative number of attempted hours.

Grade Point Average

A student must maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0.

Rate of Program Completion (Maximum Timeframe)

Students are expected to complete all program requirements by their scheduled end (graduation) date. However, an extension may be granted, not to exceed 150% of the standard program hours. For example, the maximum timeframe in which to complete a 600-hour program is 900 hours. An evaluation will be conducted when a student successfully completes the clock hours in the payment period. If it becomes apparent that the student cannot complete the program within the maximum timeframe, the student will not be allowed to continue, regardless of whether or not he or she is receiving financial aid. At the point the student successfully completes the scheduled clock hours in that payment period, financial aid will be disbursed if the student is making satisfactory progress.

Campus Security

Please click here for data from the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Postsecondary Education, and enter information for either campus.

Both Hunter Business School campuses are located in office building complexes which provide public access to other tenant businesses and their visitors. The building management does provide security patrols. Parking lots are lit at night, as are building entrances. The normal exercise of personal awareness
of surroundings of any public area is recommended while on campus during daylight and evening hours.

Police, fire, or medical emergencies can be reported by dialing 911 from any telephone on campus. Students, faculty, and staff are also informed that non-emergency calls for service can be made by calling the appropriate non-emergency contact number.

Hunter Business School requires that all criminal activity be reported to its administration and, in most instances, to the local police agency. In the event that any student, faculty, or staff witnesses or becomes a victim of criminal activity on the campus of Hunter Business School, the student, faculty, or staff member must immediately notify the school’s administration and a written report must be filed with the office of the school president by the end of the next business day. Responsibility for filing the written report lies with the person or persons in charge of the premises or the function involved. The president or his designee will report the criminal activity to the appropriate police agency in such cases as the victim desires but who has not yet filed a report.

In consultation with other appropriate administrative personnel, the president will determine any next steps necessary in investigating the criminal activity and any steps toward disciplinary action warranted against any employee or student of the school. The president or his designee will also issue a formal report to all appropriate persons involved. With incidents of criminal activity where internal disciplinary action is taken against the offender, Hunter Business School reserves the right to disclose to the alleged victims the result of such disciplinary action. Such action will be taken at the president’s discretion.

Hunter Business School does not have its own campus law enforcement or security department. Administrative and faculty personnel have enforcement authority with regard to all school policies and procedures, work closely with state and local law enforcement agencies in the reporting of criminal activity, and encourage accurate and prompt reporting of all crimes to the appropriate police agencies.

If you are the victim of a crime and do not want to pursue action within the school’s system or the criminal justice system, you may still want to consider making a confidential report for annual security report purposes. With your permission, the president or his designee can file a report on the details of the incident without revealing your identity. The purpose of a confidential report is to comply with your wish to keep the matter confidential, while taking steps to ensure the future safety of yourself and others. With such information, the school can keep an accurate record of the number of incidents involving students, faculty or staff; determine where there is a pattern of crime with regard to a particular location, methods, or assailants, and alert the campus community to potential danger. Reports filed in this manner are counted and disclosed in the annual crimes statistics for the institution.
