Specifically, for the Semi-Intensive Program this policy applies to students who do not plan on continuing to the next level. Students joining a session in-progress must understand that the teacher is not expected to repeat information already covered. Students are not required to make-up assignments and will not receive a complete grade. Instead grades will be calculated based on partial completion of whichever assessments a student was able to complete.
