    This course go towards a degree which means it must have a proctored final. Your college is accepting this course because it goes through a regionally accredited university, which tells them the class will have a proctored final, and the 60% rule will apply. Your college will not accept a class from a school that is not regionally accredited, because they know these standards won't be met.

    The final exam must be proctored at college testing center or a Sylvan Learning Center. A valid driver's license or State ID must be shown at the testing center. An expired license or State ID will not be accepted. Use this link to help you find a college testing center or Sylvan Learning center near your home: Proctored Final

    The final exam is a comprehensive final covering all of the chapters of the course. Other than scratch paper, you may view the "Authorized Materials" list for the final exam for each class.

    • Students must obtain a 60% or better on the final exam in order to get a C or better in the class.
    • Students that obtain a grade of an F on the final can receive at most a D in the class. Students that obtain a D on the final can receive at most a C in the class. Students that obtain a C on the final can receive at most a B in the class.

    The 60% rule was set in place to protect the integrity of online math education by requiring a display of competency in exchange for a grade. All schools which are regionally accredited adhere to online standards. Your college is accepting this course because it goes through a regionally accredited university, which tells your college that standards have been met. Your college will not accept a class from a school that is not regionally accredited, because they know the standards won't be met.
