Welcome to CAPRI’s Parapsychological Education Center
(Winter Term 2022)
We are currently developing courses. At the present time, there are no courses available.
Part of the Canadian Association of Parapsychological Research & Investigation’s purpose is to promote and organize educational opportunities in the social science discipline of parapsychology. Parapsychology is the scientific study of extrasensory perception (ESP), mind-matter interaction (psychokinesis), and survival of human consciousness after bodily death. The CAPRI Parapsychological Education Centre provides high quality, professional and flexible courses in parapsychology in an online learning environment.
Studying at the CAPRI Parapsychological Education Centre
Our courses provide students with the opportunity to learn about scientific parapsychological research in an interactive, fun and professional environment. We recognize that contemporary students come from diverse backgrounds and life experiences. We also acknowledge that students are busy with their careers, families and other life commitments. That is why we incorporate a flexible adult learning environment which offers students a balance between self-directed and instructional learning. Upon successful completion of each course, students will receive a CAPRI certificate of accomplishment.
- Fall term shall run from September 1st until December 31st.
- Winter term shall run from January 1st until April 30th.
- Spring term shall run from May 1st until June 30th.
- Summer term shall run from July 1st until August 31st.
Courses are hosted on Moodle, an electronic learning management system. Live course lectures will be taught through the telecommunication software Zoom. If students are unable to attend the scheduled live lecture, that is not a problem. Audio from the lectures will be uploaded immediately after class has taken place. Students will then have one full week to listen to the class broadcast, answer their weekly discussion question, and read the additional material provided. Presently, we offer eight and four week courses.
Four Week Course Structure
Once a week a live lecture will be held via Zoom followed by a posted discussion question in which students will be required to answer. There will be a final examination made available at the end of the fourth week. Sudents will have 10 days after the live lecture date to complete the examination for their final mark. Students are asked to write in American Psychological Association (APA) format whenever submitting written work which includes proper citations and references.
Eight Week Course Structure
Our Eight week courses also contain a once a week live lecture followed by a discussion question in which students will be required to answer. There will be a mid-term at the end of the fourth week in which students will have 10 days to complete. A final examination will be opened at the end of the eighth week in which students will have 10 days after the date of the live lecture to complete. Eight week courses may also have a short paper component. Short papers are limited to a minimum of three and maximum of ten published pages (not including introduction page, abstract, and references page). Again, students are asked to write in American Psychological Association (APA) format whenever submitting written work which includes proper citations and references.
Grades will be provided to each student. Grades are based on the discretion of the instructor and the academic standards of each individual course which will be provided to students in the course syllabus.
The following grades may be assigned based on academic performance:
- A+ – 90 – 100
- A- – 85 – 89
- A – 80 – 84
- B+ – 77 – 79
- B – 73 – 76
- B- – 70 – 72
- C+ – 65 – 69
- C – 60 – 64
- C- – 55 – 59
- D – 50-54
- F – 0-49
- W – Withdrawal
- I – Incomplete
- P – Plagiarism
Grades may be appealed within the context of a course. Appeals must be requested in writing from the student by e-mailing [email protected]. An independent instructor and/or moderator will speak with the primary instructor and review the student’s applicable work under appeal. The independent instructor’s review decision will be final and non-negotiable.
Voluntary Withdrawals or Termination
Students who wish or are required to withdraw due to emergency situations, personal illness, illnesses in immediate family, or a change in the student’s ability to complete their studies, must send an email to [email protected] and include their name, course and reason for the withdrawal.
For the four week courses, students must request a withdrawal before the first class begins. Students who withdraw from a four week course before the first class is presented will receive a full refund of their tuition. After class has commenced, no withdrawals will be accepted for that course and no refunds will be issued.
For the eight week courses, students may request to withdraw anytime before the commencement of week five. Refund of tuition for the eight week course will be:
- Before the course begins: 100% tuition refund.
- Withdrawal after the course has begun but before the second week is completed: 75% tuition refund.
- Withdrawal after the second week but before the fourth week is completed: 50% tuition refund.
- Withdrawal after the fourth week: No refund.
Applications for withdrawal will be reviewed by the CAPRI President and Corporate Director, and a decision will be rendered to the applicant within one week. The decision will be final and non-negotiable.
A student may be terminated from a course by the instructor due to a violation of the academic policies. Termination from a course will result in the suspension of all privileges. A termination due to the violation of academic policies will not give the student any rights to a tuition refund, and all tuition and fees that have been paid will be forfeited by the student. After a termination decision has been rendered by the CAPRI President and Corporate Director, the student cannot make a request for withdrawal from the course. Termination may occur at any time during a course.
A student who is terminated from a course will receive a failing grade for the course. If the termination is as a result of plagiarism, a P will be issued on the student’s transcript. This grade is non-negotiable regardless of the student’s standing or academic performance in the course, the number of courses which have been taken, or the student’s personal, professional, or academic needs.
Withdrawal or Termination Appeals
All students have the right to submit a formal written request for an appeal involving a withdrawal or termination decision. The student has only one opportunity for an appeal, and the decisions of the CAPRI Administration will be considered final and non-negotiable. A student cannot appeal a failing grade for a course if the student has been terminated from a course.
Student grades, certificates, academic records, and personal information will be retained at the Canadian Association of Parapsychological Research & Investigation’s headquarters in a secure location. Information within these records will be protected as legally appropriate, and no information will be released without the formal written consent from a student or as required by a judicial authorization from a Court of law.
Students will be required to complete our admissions application form (Coming Soon).
