bulletCourse Cancellation Policy

In the event of a course or program being cancelled or archived, Westbrook University reserves the right to teach the course as is or modify the student's curriculum with the student's written permission.

bulletNondiscrimination Policy

Westbrook University is in compliance with all requirements imposed by or pursuant to Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and section 504, Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Westbrook University does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, age, religion, sex, national origin, or physical handicap in its educational programs, activities, or employment policies in accordance with Federal, State, and local laws.

bulletFERPA Policy

By an act of Congress, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) protects the privacy of educational records. The nature of independent study normally requires the dissemination of information by telephone, letter, fax, email or some other distance communication method. Therefore, in order to be in compliance with FERPA, we require the student's Social Security Number or course access code before releasing any personally identifiable or educational information to the student, counselors, or parents.

It is the students responsibility to acquire any and all State, Province and or Country's provailing licence requirements and curriculum mandates. This will ensure proficiency standards.
