Students will be eligible for graduation only if their academic, laboratory and clinical progress in the program are satisfactory with a minimum final grade of 75.0%. Students must have a minimum attendance rate of 90% of the scheduled classroom time each calendar month after subtraction of excused absences. Based on their most recent entry date, students may be required to successfully pass two exit exams; but, to be eligible for the exit exams they must have first completed all clinical hours and passed all courses pertaining to their program of study.
Regardless of program, a student is eligible for graduation under the following conditions:
Upon successfully meeting all the requirements, the program’s corresponding degree, diploma, or certificate will be granted. To assist graduates with certification, licensure, and career placement, Antigua College International will, at its sole discretion, provide official transcripts and/or some indication of graduation directly to third parties, employers, regulatory agencies, and/or professional certification associations if a graduate’s financial obligations are in good standing (there are no past due balances).
As it is required by the Florida Board of Nursing to work in their chosen field, students are required to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN or NCLEX-PN) after completion of the program. ACI will assist its graduates in applying for state licensure exams but the student is responsible for any fees associated with licensure.
The Florida Board of Nursing expects that students make an initial attempt to sit for the licensure exam within 90 days of program completion. Free Test Taking Strategies and Nursing Content Reviews sessions are offered to all current and former ACI students. Graduates are encouraged to supplement their NCLEX preparation with these free review sessions.
Antigua College International holds one annual graduation ceremony for its students. The college will contact all graduates and graduating students to advise them of the date of the annual ceremony, but it is ultimately the student’s responsibility to complete the necessary steps to participate in the ceremony. Any student failing to meet the requirements may not participate in graduation ceremonies and will need to wait for the following year’s ceremony.
Requirements to participate in the graduation ceremony:
Please Note: Participation in the graduation ceremony is not equivalent to academic graduation. A student who participates in the graduation ceremony must still meet the defined academic requirements for credentials, transcripts, and diplomas to be conferred. A diploma will not be issued until the student has met the academic requirements for graduation.
