Class Attendance and Conduct

Students, instructors, and staff are expected to treat each other with respect at all times. Inappropriate behavior will not be tolerated and may result in removal from campus. Students must attend and participate in all class sessions and successfully complete the evaluation criteria to receive a certificate and stipend reimbursement.

Dress Code

It is each student's responsibility to use good judgment in selecting attire which projects a professional image and is appropriate for both climate differences and classroom activities. Generally, the standard is business casual. NFA staff have the authority to make a determination that a student’s attire may be inappropriate. Students whose attire is determined to be inappropriate will be required to change into more appropriate clothing before being allowed to continue class.
