If you enroll in a prerequisite course concurrently with (at the same
time as) advanced courses but do not complete the prerequisite successfully,
you may not receive credit for advanced courses until successfully completing
Grades are calculated on a point system. In all Character Development
Services, Child and Youth Character Development, and Biblical Perspectives
in Health Care courses, credit is awarded only for courses completed with
a grade of 80 percent or higher. However, maintenance of a 3.0 (B) grade
point average is required.
If a 3.0 GPA is not maintained, you will be placed on academic probation
for the following semester and may not take more than nine credit hours
in subsequent semesters until the grade point average is raised.
You will receive an official grade report from the Telos office after
the conclusion of each semester.
You may withdraw from a course with a grade of “W” until the
end of the ninth week of the semester (fifth week in a summer semester).
To withdraw from a course, notify the Telos office in writing. Though
it is courteous to communicate your withdrawal to your tutor, the withdrawal
is not official until the Telos office receives written confirmation from
you. If you do not make your withdrawal official, you will receive a grade
based on the number of points earned from the work that you submitted
to your tutor.
You may be eligible for a partial refund of tuition paid, depending on
the date of withdrawal. See the refund policy chart on page 38.
All rented materials should be returned to Telos within fourteen days
of withdrawal. Rental fees are nonrefundable.
If you are enrolled in two or more courses and one is the prerequisite
for the other, you may not withdraw from the prerequisite without withdrawing
from the second course.
For a reduced tuition fee, you may choose to audit many (but not all)
Telos courses. If you audit, the Telos office will send you a course pack
and you may rent required course materials. You may choose which assignments
you will complete and the pace at which you will work. However, you will
not be assigned a tutor and will not receive credit or grades for your
To audit a course, complete the application. Then use the registration/materials
form to register for the course. Indicate that you would like to take
the course on an audit basis.
Switching from credit to audit status
You may choose to switch from credit to audit status in a course. The
deadlines and refund percentages for moving from credit to audit status
are the same as those for course withdrawals (see previous section, “Dropping
Courses”). Withdrawal and refund policies for audits are the same
as for credit courses. (For more information regarding refunds, see page
38.) After notifying the Telos office of your status switch, the Telos
office will refund you the appropriate percentage of the difference between
credit and audit tuition fees. Please note that you may not switch from
audit to credit status.
If you have
completed course work at another institution, you may be able to
apply some of those credits to a Telos degree or certificate. The
following guidelines apply to credit transfers:
Transfer courses must
be comparable to Telos courses in content, objectives, and semester
You must have received
a B– or higher in the course you wish to transfer and must
maintain a B– or higher average in 15 hours of Telos work
before the transfer of credits is confirmed.
You may transfer a maximum
of 25 percent of credits for a Telos degree. For example, no more
than 16 of the 64 hours required for the associate of arts degree
in character development may be transferred from another institution.
To apply for transfer
of credit, submit to the registrar’s office a course description
of the course you wish to transfer, an official transcript, and
a letter requesting a review of your transfer credit request.
