There are no deadlines for submitting any assignment or course unit to QC.
Once a full unit has been submitted for grading, you will receive a grade and audio feedback from your tutor within 10 business days. Should your tutor take longer than 10 business days, contact the School for assistance.
Units are awarded a letter grade ranging from A+ (exceptional) to F (fail). A grade of C- or above is required to pass each unit.
Failing a unit (grade below C-) will require you to re-submit that unit. An administrative fee will be charged to your account when re-submitting a unit for grading.

Communication with Your Tutor

Your student advisor may answer your questions directly, or may forward your request to your tutor and relay the answer back to you.
6. Withdrawal Policy
Withdrawals after the 21-day guarantee period are evaluated on a case-by-case basis. If you wish to withdraw from your course(s) after the 21-day guarantee period, a student advisor will evaluate your student account to determine whether a withdrawal fee will apply.
- It is your responsibility to contact the School in writing via email if you wish to withdraw from your course(s).
- Automated tuition payments will continue to be processed, and you are responsible for meeting your tuition payment obligations until you have reached a withdrawal agreement with the School.
- Withdrawal fees are dependent on tuition fees paid to date, the course materials sent to you, and the amount of tutorial used. If you have completed significant course work, you may be charged additional fees before a withdrawal from the course is processed.
- QC reserves the right to refuse any withdrawal request after the 21-day guarantee period.
