Student Identity Verification Policy

Naaleh College takes measures to assure that students’ identity is verified and only the individual who was accepted and is enrolled in the college has access to course materials, proctored examinations, and grade reports.
Student identity is verified during the application process by submitting a copy of a valid government-issued photo identification document, such as a driver’s license or passport. In addition a phone or web-conferencing interview help the Admissions personnel to confirm that personal identifying information is accurate, through informal discussion and verification of personal details.
When a student applies to Naaleh College s/he receives a unique login and password. Course content and and online gradebooks can only be accessed when the student logs into the website with his/her individual username and password. Prior to sharing information with a student on the phone, the student is asked to provide identifying information.
Naaleh College courses are designed with various measures to ensure student identity. Each week, students participate asynchronously in an online lecture / conversation session. The instructors schedule a phone call with each student at least twice a semester. During these phone calls, the instructor and student discuss the course, student progress, and any pertinent questions or concerns.
Many courses culminate with a proctored exam. The exams are proctored through ProctorU, an online proctoring service which is widely used by various institutes of higher education. ProctorU personnel use legal photo IDs as well as publicly available information to verify the student’s identity before giving the student access to the proctored exam.
The best indicator of student identity is the way Naaleh College assignments are designed. Many assignments require students to apply the new content knowledge to their personal situations. When completing these assignments, students use their own “voice”. As teachers read and respond to students on a weekly basis, teachers get to know each students’ “voice”. With a small number of faculty members, faculty teach multiple
classes and often teach students in more than one class. Therefore, the faculty and students develop a relationship with faculty recognizing each students’ “voice.”

Student Conduct Policy

Naaleh College is a religious institution. Students behaving in a manner that offends other students and their religious beliefs may be disciplined or expelled. Unprofessional conduct that might discredit the school will be subject to termination of any student. The school reserves the right to terminate any student for one or more of the following:

  • Non-compliance, or failure, to abide by school rules
  • Unbecoming conduct
  • Offending religious sensitivities of other students or of institution
  • Use of drugs or narcotics of any kind, alcohol abuse
  • Excessive absences
  • Failure to pay school fees / tuition
  • Cheating, stealing, plagiarism
  • Sexual Harassment of another student, or of school personnel
  • Harassment of any kind (Intimidation/Discrimination)
  • Verbal or physical violence
  • Use of abusive language, or profanity
  • Willful destruction of school property, or another student's property
  • Failure to maintain required academic progress
  • Insubordination to faculty or staff

Academic Engagement Policy

Academic Engagement Requirements:

Students are responsible for all material taught in a course. This includes material taught via lecture, interactive class session, or discussion board. Assignments must be submitted on time. The teacher may reduce the grade for an assignment as penalty for discussion posts or work submitted late. Graded work that receives below a 70% will require a discussion with the instructor.

Instructor Interaction:

Instructor’s interact with students via the Learning Management System, during weekly Office Hours, and via phone and email.

Office Hours: 

Instructors offer up to two hours per week to meet with students live. The office hours are posted on the course homepage as well as in the syllabus. These sessions  take place either via conference call, or online via web conferencing. Additionally, students may email the professor directly. Every professor informs students of his/her email address and any other contact information of their choice, and responds within 24-hours, unless it is a holiday or weekend. Students may post general questions or comments in the appropriate venue within the course.

Assignment Submission Policy

All assigned coursework should be submitted in the format outlined, unless the student has received prior approval. This includes but is not limited to forum postings, projects, and instructor emails. Each assignment must be submitted by its due date. Assignments submitted late may be subject to partial credit, or in some cases not accepted as determined by the course instructor. All assignments should be submitted prior to the end of course date. Students who fail to submit all coursework by semester end will be issued a Fail (F) for the course. If special circumstances require an extension for submitting coursework past the end of the semester, students may request an extension and be issued an Incomplete grade. For information on requesting an extension and earning an Incomplete grade, refer to the Incomplete Grade Policy.

Instructors have the option to modify the Naaleh College Assignment Submission policy. If an instructor chooses to modify the Naaleh College Assignment Submission policy, the instructor is required to inform students of the policy during the first week of class. The default policy for late work is as follows:

Faculty and staff of Naaleh College realize that emergencies do occur. If a student knows that he/she will be unable to complete an assignment by the due date, he/she is to contact the instructor PRIOR to the due date. Early contact is best, as plans can be made to keep the student from falling behind, and ensure the highest possible grade.

Leave Of Absence

Students may request a Leave of Absence (LOA) for up to one calendar year. To request a LOA, the student submits the Leave of Absence form to the Registrar. Included in the request is the expected date of return. The Registrar maintains contact with the student during the LOA to monitor the student’s plans to return to studies.

Student Grievance Policy

  • Any student who has a grievance with the school or an instructor should first discuss the problem with the instructor or Dean of Students.
  • If a resolution is not reached, the student should make a written complaint and submit it to the school director asking for a written response.

Student Complaint Procedure

Naaleh College aims to provide a high quality service to all students. The student complaint procedure consists of a straightforward and informal method of resolving student concerns, with an option of a more formal, written procedure in cases where all efforts for resolutions have been attempted. 

The following procedure is intended for complaints about service, support, or assistance provided by academic, administrative or support departments. Complaints can be of academic matters such as instruction methodology or supervision arrangements or nonacademic matters such as IT support, university services, policies etc. 

Complaints and appeals relating to the appeal process for policies and violations and academic appeals will not be considered under this procedure. In such instances, the student should refer to the appeals process as outlined in this catalog. The complaints procedure depends upon the ability to collect appropriate information from all parties involved, therefore anonymous complaints are not normally considered. All information submitted to Naaleh College while a student complaint is under investigation shall be treated as confidential and will only be available to the appropriate/involved parties. It is equally important that the student also respect the need for confidentiality throughout the complaint process. Students who submit a complaint should be aware that complete confidentiality cannot always be guaranteed if effective action is to be taken. Where a complaint is in reference to a specific individual, the complaint cannot be investigated if the student does not wish the allegation to be made known to that individual. 

Informal Student Complaint Procedure 

  1. A student should initially discuss concern(s) with those directly responsible. If the student is not comfortable or willing to approach that person, the student’s Faculty Advisor or appropriate staff member may be approached. When possible, student complaints should be resolved during this initial and informal stage without the need to resort to formal proceedings. 
  2. If the complaint is in reference to an issue relating to a specific staff or faculty member, the student should raise the concern with that person either orally or in writing. 
  3. If a student is dissatisfied with an issue that relates to a specific staff member or a policy that the student is not willing to raise with that person, the student should present his/her concerns orally or in writing to any staff member. At this stage, student complaints will be responded to within five (5) business days. 
  4. If the student completes the above procedure and believes that the complaint was not resolved to the standard which could reasonably be expected from the College, he/she may opt to proceed to the formal student complaint procedure which is outlined below. 


Formal Student Complaint Procedure When a student believes that the complaint has not been resolved to his/her satisfaction, or if the student wishes to present the complaint formally, the student is encouraged to submit the complaint on the Official Student Complaint Form to the School Director. 

  1. The student complaint form is available online through the website, or by contacting the Student Services Department at 
  2. The School Director will either personally investigate the complaint or formally appoint a designee with no prior involvement in the matter to undertake the investigation. 
  3. The School Director or designee will undertake the investigation with the intention of arriving at a solution that is acceptable to all parties involved. He/she may consult with the student or other persons as appropriate. The student will be advised in writing within 30 days of the receipt of the Student Complaint Form of the outcome of their complaint and of any consequential action to be taken. This will include a summary of the reasons for the decision. 
  4. A copy of the letter to the student will be kept in a confidential student complaint file to be securely maintained at the College. 
  5. When a satisfactory resolution of the problem is not obtained, the student may contact Commission for Independent Education 325 West Gaines Street, Suite 1414 Tallahassee, Florida 32399-0400 Telephone: (888) 224-6684 
  6. Out‐of‐State Distance Education students, who have completed the internal institutional grievance process and the applicable state grievance process, may appeal non‐instructional complaints to the FL‐SARAPRDEC Council.

Student Privacy and Disclosure Protection Policy - FERPA

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) afford eligible students certain rights with respect to their education records. (An “eligible student” under FERPA is a student who is 18 years of age or older or who attends a postsecondary institution.) These rights include:


The right to inspect and review the student’s education records within 45 days after the day Naaleh College receives a request for access. A student should submit to the registrar, dean, head of the academic department, or other appropriate official, a written request that identifies the record(s) the student wishes to inspect. The school official will make arrangements for access and notify the student of the time and place where the records may be inspected. If the records are not maintained by the school official to whom the request was submitted, that official shall advise the student of the correct official to whom the request should be addressed.


The right to request the amendment of the student’s education records that the student believes is inaccurate, misleading, or otherwise in violation of the student’s privacy rights under FERPA.
A student who wishes to ask the school to amend a record should write the school official responsible for the record, clearly identify the part of the record the student wants changed, and specify why it should be changed. If the school decides not to amend the record as requested, the school will notify the student in writing of the decision and the student’s right to a hearing regarding the request for amendment. Additional information regarding the hearing procedures will be provided to the student when notified of the right to a hearing.


The right to provide written consent before the university discloses personally identifiable information (PII) from the student’s education records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent.
The school discloses education records without a student’s prior written consent under the FERPA exception for disclosure to school officials with legitimate educational interests. A school official is a person employed by Naaleh College in an administrative, supervisory, academic, research, or support staff position (including law enforcement unit personnel and health staff); a person serving on the board of trustees; or a student serving on an official committee, such as a disciplinary or grievance committee. A school official also may include a volunteer or contractor outside of Naaleh College who performs an institutional service of function for which the school would otherwise use its own employees and who is under the direct control of the school with respect to the use and maintenance of PII from education records, such as an attorney, auditor, or collection agent or a student volunteering to assist another school official in performing his or her tasks. A school official has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an education record in order to fulfill his or her professional responsibilities for Naaleh College.
Upon request, the school also discloses education records without consent to officials of another school in which a student seeks or intends to enroll. Naaleh College will make a reasonable attempt to notify each student of these disclosures unless the school states in its annual notification that it intends to forward records on request.


The right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education concerning alleged failures by Naaleh College to comply with the requirements of FERPA. The name and address of the Office that administers FERPA is:
Family Policy Compliance Office
U.S. Department of Education
400 Maryland Avenue, SW
Washington, DC 20202

See the list below of the disclosures that postsecondary institutions may make without consent.
FERPA permits the disclosure of PII from students’ education records, without consent of the student, if the disclosure meets certain conditions found in §99.31 of the FERPA regulations. Except for disclosures to school officials, disclosures related to some judicial orders or lawfully issued subpoenas, disclosures of directory information, and disclosures to the student, §99.32 of FERPA regulations requires the institution to record the disclosure. Eligible students have a right to inspect and review the record of disclosures. A postsecondary institution may disclose PII from the education records without obtaining prior written consent of the student –
To other school officials, including teachers, within Naaleh College whom the school has determined to have legitimate educational interests. This includes contractors, consultants, volunteers, or other parties to whom the school has outsourced institutional services or functions, provided that the conditions listed in §99.31(a)(1)(i)(B)(1) – (a)(1)(i)(B)(2) are met.(§99.31(a)(1))

  • To officials of another school where the student seeks or intends to enroll, or where the student is already enrolled if the disclosure is for purposes related to the student’s enrollment or transfer, subject to the requirements of §99.34. (§99.31(a)(2))
  • To authorized representatives of the U. S. Comptroller General, the U. S.

Grading System

Naaleh College uses the following grading scale:

A 94-100 4.0 Exceptional work
A- 90-93 3.7 Excellent
B+ 87-89 3.5 Very good
B 83-86 3.0 Meets expectations
B- 80-82 2.7 Average
C+ 77-79 2.5 Average
C 70-76 2.0 Average
D+ 67-69 1.3 Must retake course
D 63-66 1.0 Must retake course
D- 60-62 0.7 Must retake course
F Below 60 0.0 Failing


Students earning below a C must retake the class. If a student retakes a class, the full tuition will be assessed. All assignments are graded using standard grading rubrics.

Assignment Submission Policy

All assigned coursework should be submitted in the format outlined, unless the student has received prior approval. This includes but is not limited to forum postings, projects, and instructor emails. Each assignment has a due date to guide students in successful course completion. Any assignments submitted after that time will be considered late, as established by the Student Late Work Policy. Once an assignment is considered late it may be subject to partial credit or in some cases not accepted, as determined by the course instructor. All assignments should be submitted prior to the end of course date. If a student feels they will not be able to complete all assignments within that time frame, he / she may elect to take an incomplete in the course. For information on petitioning to receive an incomplete grade, refer to the Incomplete Grade Policy.

Student Late Work Policy

Instructors have the option to modify the Naaleh College Assignment Submission policy. If an instructor selects to modify the Naaleh College Assignment Submission policy, the instructor is required to inform students of the policy during the first week of class. The student late work policy of the instructor should be followed in all cases. This default late work policy is as follows:

Faculty and staff of Naaleh College realize that emergencies do occur. If a student knows that he/she will be unable to complete an assignment by the due date, he/she is to contact the instructor PRIOR to the due date. Early contact is best, as plans can be made to keep the student from falling behind, and ensure the highest possible grade. Without a prior emailed extension from the instructor, late work will be accepted up to one week after the due date for partial credit.

Incomplete Grade Policy

Students have the opportunity to petition to receive an incomplete grade if they are unable to complete course assignments by the end of the semester. To petition, students and faculty members review the assignments that are outstanding and the last date the student would be allowed to submit the assignments. The faculty member and student sign the Incomplete Grade Form (Appendix B) stating the details and the faculty member submits the form to the Registrar. Incomplete grades should be given only if students have a chance to complete the work within two weeks of the course end date. If work is not submitted two weeks after the end of the semester, then the teacher must contact the student to work out a plan for completing the work. All work must be submitted by the end of the following semester. Failure to do so changes the Incomplete to a Failing grade.

Unit of Credit

Naaleh College offers all degree programs on a semester credit hour basis with one contact hour equivalent to 15 lecture, 30 laboratory, and 45 externship hours. The credit measure is based upon outcomes of the course, not time input, with monitoring of time logged into a class, including streaming or downloading videos and/or working on tests and quizzes. A semester is defined as sixteen weeks of instruction, learning experience, and out of class assignments.

The following table outlines the number of credits required for graduation from each program offered at Naaleh College:

Program General Education Credits Required Major Credits Elective Credits Total Credits
Software and Development 15 24 21 60
Computer Programming and Technology 30 33 57 120
Judaic Studies 45 30 or 43 45 or 32 120


Standards for Satisfactory Progress in a Course

The minimum standards considered for satisfactory progress in a course or program for credit earned and to graduate are:

  • Eighty percent (80%) participation in online discussion board
  • Completion of all tests and assignments at 70% or better
  • Final grades and student evaluations are issued at the end of each semester
  • A student must maintain a CGPA of 2.0

Proctored Exams

Many courses culminate with a final exam, which is proctored using ProctorU, an online proctoring service. The ProctorU service is modeled after the in-classroom experience. ProctorU uses specific protocol for identity validation, including having students show an official ID.

ProctorU proctors monitor the students through audio and video connections and employ screen-sharing technology that allows the proctor to view the student’s computer screen during the exam session.
Proctored exams are spread out within the program, with some lower level and some upper level courses requiring proctored exams. This ensures that students throughout the program will be properly identified. Standard general education courses such as algebra, introductory technology courses, and social science courses also require proctored exams. Many courses that require a final require students to complete the final exam with ProctorU. 

Standards for Satisfactory Academic Progress in a Program (SAP)

Naaleh College students are responsible for knowing their own academic standing within their specific program. An important evaluation for student’s academic standing is the Satisfactory Academic Progress

Naaleh College breaks down satisfactory academic progress into two areas: progress through a course and progress through a program.

SAP through a program requirements contain 3 elements: Maximum Time Frame, Cumulative GPA and Pace of Completion.


Maximum Time Frame

Students enrolled fulltime in the associate degree program are expected to graduate within 2 years at normal time and 3 years within a 150% time-frame to demonstrate satisfactory academic progress. Fulltime students in the bachelor degree programs are expected to graduate within 4 years at normal time and 6 years within a 150% time-frame to demonstrate satisfactory academic progress. Part time students are expected to graduate in 4 years for the associate degree program and within 9 years for the bachelors degree programs to demonstrate satisfactory academic progress.


Cumulative minimum Grade Point Averages (CGPA)

Students must maintain a CGPA of 2.00 to be considered within SAP. Those with lower than a CGPA of 2.00 at the bi-annual SAP evaluation point, will be placed on academic probation.


Pace of Completion

Students must successfully pass 65% of all courses attempted. Those who have not will be placed on Academic probation. SAP Reviews Evaluation of Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) through a program of all students is completed after the Fall and Spring Semesters. Students who fail to meet SAP requirements are notified and informed of the appeal process. Those that fail to meet SAP requirements are placed on academic probation.  The following information is recorded in the SAP excel spreadsheet: name, if a student is full time/part time, pace requirement (whether the student passed 2/3 of his or her courses this semester, CGPA (cumulative grade point average), time frame, whether the student is within SAP or not, and whether a response is necessary. SAP through a course involves discussion board posts, assignment submissions and grades.

  1. Discussion Board: Students must post each week. Student who misses two consecutive weeks will be contacted by the instructor.
  2. Assignments: Students must submit assignments on time. Students who fail to submit assignments on time will be contacted by the instructor.
  3. Grades: Students must receive a 70% or higher to be considered progressing satisfactorily through the course.

SAP Appeals and Probation Students may appeal if unusual and/or mitigating circumstances affected academic progress. Such circumstances may include a severe illness or injury to the student or an immediate family member, the death of a student’s relative, student military service activation or other circumstances as deemed appropriate for consideration by the Dean. To appeal, the student must submit a letter and supporting documentation to the Dean. These must explain in detail why the student failed to meet the minimum academic standards, what unusual and/or mitigating circumstances contributed to the failure and how their situation has changed to allow the student to meet SAP requirements by the next calculation. Submit appeals to the SAP Appeals Committee care of: Appeals are reviewed within 15 working days of receipt of all required documentation. You will be notified by email if the above timeframe is revised during peak processing times. Students with an approved SAP Appeal will be removed from academic probation. Those whose appeals have been denied will remain on academic probation.

Academic Probation

  • A student who does not maintain a 2.0 cumulative grade point average (CGPA) or drops below 1.5 GPA for any term will be placed on academic probation for the next term.
  • The student will also be given extra assistance in an effort to reach the expected level of performance.
  • Students will be evaluated at the mid-term and end of term to assess progress.
  • Students meeting the standards for satisfactory academic progress at the end of the probationary term will return to satisfactory status.
  • Students who do not meet the standards for satisfactory academic progress at the end of the probationary term are withdrawn.

A student enrolled in a bachelor’s degree program must declare his/her chosen major by the end of his/her sophomore year. A student enrolled in an associate’s degree program must declare his/her chosen major by the end of his/her third term at the college. During this time students are advised to take general education courses common to all programs. At the time a major is declared, each student will meet with a member of the administration to go over the courses already taken and plan out the course of study until graduation. Once a student feels s/he is ready to graduate, s/he must meet with a member of the administration again to go over his/her records to verify all requirements for graduation have been met.

Transfer of Credits

The transferability of Naaleh College credits is solely at the discretion of the receiving institution. It is each student’s responsibility to confirm whether credits will be accepted by another institution.

Naaleh College will accept credits that meet the school’s standards. Classes offered by accredited institutions, Israeli yeshivot and seminaries, and some advanced high school courses are eligible for credit. Students should submit official course descriptions for the courses they wish to transfer to Naaleh College.

Students may transfer credits earned at and transferred from other postsecondary institutions, when congruent and applicable to the Naaleh College program, and when validated and confirmed by Naaleh College. Official transcripts should be sent directly from the transferring institution. Students must also submit official course descriptions for a course which they wish to transfer to Naaleh College.

Credits can also be earned upon successful completion of challenge examinations or standardized tests demonstrating learning at the credential level in specific subject matter areas. Prior learning, as validated, evaluated, and confirmed by qualified instructors at Naaleh College, can also earn credits. Department heads, Assistant Educational Director or the Academic Dean have the authority to approve specific courses or credits that a student has previously earned as substitutes for required courses in a given program, at their discretion.

Up to 75% of a program’s credits can be transferred from other institutions to Naaleh College.

Correspondence Courses

Students, who wish for any reason to take a Naaleh course via correspondence, must submit a request via email to the Registrar. Requests will be reviewed by the Dean. If accommodations can be made regarding the particular course and instructor availability the student will receive a notice of acceptance of the request.

Once approved, the student will register for the course through the Registrar; the same as online course registration. Once the next semester commences the student will receive the course material, syllabus and assignments from the instructor. The student can self-pace to determine the submission of assignments. There are no discussion board requirements; however, extra assignments are included to fulfill the required academic hours. The student submits assignments to the instructor.

Correspondence courses include 3 phone call meetings between student and instructor over the course of the semester, but do not require weekly contact. Students complete the course by the end of the semester and take the final or complete a final paper. Fees for correspondence courses are the same as Naaleh College online courses.
