WHAT IF I CHANGE MY MIND PART WAY THROUGH THE COURSE?

There is no refunds once a module is mailed off to the student. Each student has the right and the decision to choose to stop at the end of any given module they wish. A Nutritional Consulting Diploma will be given only when a final exam is given once all 4 modules are complete.


DO I NEED TO BY MY BOOKS, OR ARE THEY COVERED IN THE PRICE?

All books used in the curriculum are covered under the cost of the program. Books cannot be returned or refused for credit. If a student has the book personally in his/her library, the additional book is useful for a resource sale to his/her future clients, or can be used as an educational gift.

 

WHAT ARE THE GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS?

In order to graduate with a diploma in Nutritional Consulting, a final average grade of 80% or higher must be achieved.
This final average grade is comprised of:
50%: grade average of all course exams (16 open-book tests from Module 1-4)
50%: final exam (proctored) once all 4 modules have been completed
***If a student achieves less than 80% on an open-book test, additional reading material, along with comments from the instructor, will be given to the student.

 

IS MY INFORMATION KEPT TO JUST YOUR SCHOOL?

Information pertaining to each student (current and former) is kept confidential in his/her file. Absolutely no part of the material from copyright publication, program material/notes, or teachers’ comments, may be photocopied or adapted for teaching purposes or shared with restrictions may result in legal action.


IF I DON'T LIKE A BOOK OR SUBJECT CAN I GET AN EXEMPTION?

Total Health School of Nutrition will not grant exemptions for program subjects. The school feels it is in the interest of the student to complete each subject as outlined. It will be a good review for student and will contribute towards a more positive final grade.

 

WHAT IS THE FINAL EXAM LIKE?

Each student will take the final exam on the date indicated on his or her personal schedule. Each student is responsible for finding his or her own final exam facilitator (this must be a professional, such as a pastor, professor, or teacher). The exam will be mailed directly to the facilitator. The facilitator will request picture identification from the student for proof of identity. The exam will be administered directly to the student by the facilitator, within a specified time frame. The facilitator will then sign and mail the exam directly to the Total Health School of Nutrition for marking. If a student does not achieve an overall grade of 80% after writing the final exam, the instructor will review to determine the area of weakness and decide whether or not a final exam re-write is appropriate. An additional charge will be levied to those who require a final exam re-write. If the student is not given a second attempt at the final exam OR are given a second attempt and still do not achieve an overall grade of 80%, they will not have successfully completed the program, and will not receive a credential.

 

WHEN DO I RECIEVE MY TRANSCRIPTS & DIPLOMA?

Transcripts and Diploma will be mailed 4-8 weeks after writing the final exam.
Additional transcripts may be requested for an additional $10.00 processing fee.

 

CAN I MAKE AN APPEAL ON A MARK?

Yes, an appeal may be made in writing and faxed to the instructor at Total Health School of Nutrition within 5 working days after receiving the results on an exam. (After this time period, there will be no appeal allowed.) The School will review the appeal letter and a response will be given back within 10 working days to the student. All decisions at that point will be final.
