Academic Information.

Grading System

A report of grades will be issued to each student at the end of each calendar semester. The student will also receive his course grade upon the completion of each course. All classes are considered to be 3 units. The following grade point scale will apply:

A -Excellent -4 Grade points
B -Above Average -3 Grade points
C -Average -2 Grade points
D -Below Average -1 Grade point
F -Failure -0 Grade points
W -Withdrawn-Not part of GPA
AU -Audit-Not part of GPA
P -Pass-Not part of GPA

Student Load

Each student may register for as little as one or as many as six courses at a time. However, each course must be completed within 3 months of registration, regardless of the number of courses registered at that time.

Failure to complete a class within the specified amount of time results in a $50 re-enrollment fee. CBI understands that there are many good reasons not to do your school work (soul winning, serving in your church, etc). However, if it is God’s will for you to take a class, it is definitely God’s will for you to complete it in a timely manner. This fee is an encouragement to that end.

Academic Probation

Failure to sustain a 3.0 grade point average in any given semester will automatically require academic probation. The student’s progress will be monitored for the next three courses he completes. If, after the next three courses are completed, the student’s grade point average is still below the 3.0 cumulative average, the student will be asked to withdraw from the school.

  • Completion of at least 30 units at CBI
