Supplementary Course Application

OverviewApplication for Supplementary Courses

Students may register for as many of the supplementary offerings as they like.

The registration deadline is?Thursday, September 20, 2018?at 4:00 pm.?At that time we will start updating the schedule for all registered students, endeavoring to avert any time conflicts among all registrants.

Registration is conducted online for most of the offerings, through web links at the bottom of this page. However, registration for speaking partner and pronunciation (Tajwid class) must be handled in person with Ayman at the reception desk starting from Sunday Sep 23th.

Please note that, due to high demand and the limited availability of conversation partners, conversation partner time slots are assigned on a first?come, first served basis. Each student can only take a maximum of 2 slots in pronunciation (Tajwid) or conversation partner.

Tuition Payments and Deposits

The costs for each course are described above.

Payment in full for all enrolled courses is due at the beginning of the first session of each course. This is the same for Conversation Partners which will be priced per student upon completion of the master schedule.

Withdrawals and Refunds

Any student who prepays for their Supplementary Course and then withdraws before the first day of class, 100% of their tuition will be refunded. However, no refunds are given once the first day of class has commenced. Qasid will also provide a full refund for any class which is cancelled due to the minimum quota of 4 enrolled students not being reached during registration.

Supplementary Course Absences and Tardiness

Because our Supplementary Courses may soon be eligible for transferable academic credit, students pursuing this option will be held to a minimum attendance standard. In other words, attendance will be recorded regularly for the entire class, but absences will only have academic ramifications for those taking the class for credit.

A student may miss up to 2 individual class sessions of a Supplementary Course before Qasid reserves the right to begin deducting 2% from their final grade for each class session missed thereafter. And every 3 instances of tardiness will count as 1 individual class session absence.

In the occurrence of a student?s absence or tardiness, irrespective of cause, Qasid instructors are not obligated to review any missed lesson material in the class or outside of class. The student is solely responsible to attain any missed lesson material, instructions, or assignments.

Consequences for anticipated and legitimate, but unavoidable, absences from Supplementary Courses due to medical, professional, visa renewal issues, and the like, or extraordinary circumstances, such as a death in a student?s immediate family, or other similarly unanticipated, serious, and time consuming events will be handled on a case by case basis.

Attendance Accommodations for Personalized Supplementary Courses

For Conversation Partner, a tardy student will be allowed to complete the time remaining in their lesson. Although, a teacher will only wait 10 to 15 minutes in the classroom, after which time a student arriving late?will need to go to the reception desk to inform the teacher of their arrival.

In the case of anticipated and legitimate but unavoidable absences, or lessons missed due to extraordinary situations, Qasid will attempt to, but is not obligated to reschedule the class sessions. However, unwarranted lapses in attendance will not be rescheduled.

Students in these personalized courses should inform their teacher and the Director of Student Services before all anticipated absences. A student will be allowed up to 3 session absences, irrespective of cause, in which Qasid will offer to make up the class for them. Note, however, that makeup sessions may be offered with a different instructor, and possibly after regular session hours, or on weekends.

Deadline Reminder

For all supplementary offerings, please be sure to sign up by this Thursday, Sep 20, 2018?at 4:00 pm,?as once the schedule is set it will be very difficult to amend.
