Attendance Requirements

Students are expected to arrive on time for class with proper materials. An overall attendance rate of at least 75% is required. Instructors may request your withdrawal from a course or program if absences or tardiness exceed 50%. Students who are unable to continue classes for medical reasons or severe personal problems may be required to take a leave of absence until they are able to return to class. Proper documentation will be required to substantiate a student’s withdrawal.

Grading System

Progress reports with grades will be issued to students throughout the program. Students enrolled in short-term courses will be issued grades at course end.

Placement Assistance

Through our strategic partnership with CannaStaff, HempTemps and Clover Leaf Consulting, we are able to offer employment assistance to graduates, consisting of job lead referrals and job skills development. While assisting in your job search, we make no guarantee, expressed or implied of future employment. Current law prohibits any school from guaranteeing job placement as an inducement to enroll students.

Postponement of Start Date

Postponement of a starting date, whether at the request of the school or the student, requires a written agreement signed by the student and the school. The agreement must set forth:

Whether the postponement is for the convenience of the school or the student, and;
A deadline for the new start date, beyond which the start date will not be postponed.

If the course is not commenced, or the student fails to attend by the new start date set forth in the agreement, the student will be entitled to an appropriate refund of prepaid tuition and fees within 30 days of the deadline of the new start date set forth in the agreement, determined in accordance with the school’s refund policy and all applicable laws and rules concerning the Private Occupational Education Act of 1981.

Progress Policy

Students must maintain a 70% grade point average. Those who do not will be placed on probation for 30 days. During the probation period students must raise their grade average to passing or higher. The student may be terminated if grades are not satisfactory at the end of the probationary period. Termination shall be at the school Director’s discretion. The Director has final authority and shall notify the student of the final decision.

Conduct Policy

All students are expected to act maturely and are required to respect other students and faculty members. Possession of weapons, illegal drugs, and alcohol of any kind are not allowed at any time on school property. Any violation of school policies may result in permanent dismissal from school.


Any student may be dismissed for violations of rules and regulations of the school, as set forth in school publications. A student also may be withdrawn from classes if he or she does not prepare sufficiently, neglects assignments, or makes unsatisfactory progress. The director, after consultation with all parties involved, makes the final decision. The Director of Education may temporarily suspend students whose conduct is disruptive or unacceptable to the academic setting. After appropriate counseling, students who demonstrate a genuine desire to learn and conform to school standards of conduct, may be allowed to resume attendance. The director will review each case and decide upon re-admittance.


Our classrooms are furnished with modern equipment to computer programs, charts, diagrams and videos to enhance classroom activities. Our weekend seminars and classes will be held at rented locations and our permanent facilities will remain online. We will provide an online list of resources for our students. A simple computer and internet connection will be adequate to take the online classes.

Previous Credits

Credits from another institution will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Clover Leaf University does not guarantee transferability of our credits to another institution unless there is a written agreement with another institution.
