Fees & Deadlines
The Grading System:
Students must maintain a minimum average of 60% or 70% in Science or
Homeopathy courses. Students who fail to achieve the minimum grade
on any given examination may be required to make arrangements to
improve their standing. Students will be granted only one
opportunity for the rewriting of an examination or assignment. The
maximum grade awarded after successful remediation is 70%.
Failure of a Course:
Students must retake any failed course in the next session in which
the course is available. Charges will apply. Unless otherwise
prearranged, failure to write an exam constitutes failure of that
exam. Failing the same course twice will result in a dismissal.
Code of Conduct:
The HCC will not tolerate cheating, misrepresentation, unfairness,
or dishonesty in any form. Other offenses which may lead to
suspension or dismissal are as follows: student conduct which
threatens the well-being of fellow students, staff, patients or the
profession; practising homeopathy outside of the Teaching Clinic or
without HCC supervision. No tuition refund will be given to students
dismissed for any of the above reasons.
Applicants with credits from an accredited educational institution
may be exempt from the equivalent courses in the program. Students
seeking advanced standing must apply to the Dean.
All academic policies, rules and regulations are outlined in
detail in the HCC Student Handbook, distributed to students in the
beginning of the first school term. Any policy, procedure or
regulation defined in the Student Handbook has precedent over that
which is defined here, or on other parts of the web site or in any
other printed literature.
