Understanding Your Course Grades

In Continuing Education, we believe in recognizing the hard work and dedication of our students. Therefore, we have established a grading system that takes into account both your attendance and your performance in course work/assignments. Here's how it works:

Our grading system is divided into two components: Attendance and Course Work/Assignments. Each of these components is graded separately, and the final grade is determined by the combination of these two grades. Here is the breakdown:

Pass With Distinction: This is the highest recognition we offer for course completion. If you achieve a grade of 90% or higher in both attendance and assignments, you will receive a "Pass With Distinction". This grade is a testament to your exceptional commitment to the course and your outstanding academic performance.

Pass: A "Pass" grade is awarded to students who achieve a grade between 70% and 89% in either attendance or assignments. This grade reflects a solid commitment to the course and a commendable level of academic achievement.

No Pass: If a student's grade is less than 70% in either attendance or assignments, they will receive a "No Pass" grade. This indicates that the student may need to revisit the course material or improve their attendance for a better understanding and performance. For core courses, students who receive a "No Pass" should re-register for the course. For electives, students have the option to choose other courses.


Course content is frequently revised to ensure that the program is up-to-date with the latest industry standards. For this reason, the course requirements must be completed within the same three-year period.

Certification Path Package (CPP) Eligibility*: To take advantage of this discounted pricing, students must meet the following criteria:

  1. Register for a Professional Training Certificate.
  2. Pay the full CPP price in advance.
  3. Not have completed any of the courses included in the package within the last 3 years. This ensures that students benefit from the most current course content and contribute to a cohesive learning experience within the program.

*CPPs may not be combined with any other discounts or offers.

Note: For the Certificate in Intermediate English Language Proficiency, High-Intermediate English Language Proficiency, and Advanced English Language Proficiency, only courses listed in the Elective Courses section are eligible for the CPP. While other courses not listed may be applied as an elective towards the completion of a Professional Training Certificate (PTC), they are not eligible for inclusion in the CPP.
