Course Extension Policy
Students are encouraged to complete all coursework pursuant to the schedule; however, course extensions may be granted due to extenuating circumstances.  Extenuating circumstances may include family or medical emergencies, work related accidents, building system failures*, job relocations, employment terminations, military deployments, natural disasters, universal precautions, or hazardous substances and cleanup. 

* Building System Failures mean significant damage to the electrical power, gas supply, water distribution, sewer system, or building structure that requires maintenance work from numerous technicians until corrected. This definition does not include deficiencies in units that one individual can repair. 

Students who meet this criteria may submit a request to have his/her course extended.  Documentation is required to support such claim. More importantly, students are required to set realistic goals and timelines to complete outstanding assignments.  Requests stemming from routine maintenance operations will not be considered.

If the request is denied, that decision can be appealed by obtaining approval from the student’s management team: specifically from [1] the Maintenance Director or Maintenance Committee, [2] Property Manager, [3] Regional Property Manager, and [4] a Regional Property Manager not assigned to that area. Their approval must be unanimous, otherwise, approval from the Company CEO is required.
