What happens if I don't pass a course? Am I ineligible to continue in the CHSC program if I don't pass a course exam?
CSSE requires that all CHSC candidates pass the final Exam in each course to successfully complete the course. The pass grade is 75%. Exams with scores 70% - 74% may be appealed, in writing, if accompanied with the appropriate administrative fee.
Course in which candidates have failed an Exam may be re-taken at one-half the normal registration fee. An Exam may not be challenged a second time without re-taking the course again and a course may be undertaken no more than three times in total.
After any unsuccessful appeals and if the candidate has not successfully passed a course after all re-taking options, the individual must withdraw from the CHSC program.
