INDIVIDUALIZED LEARNING APPROACH/HOME STUDY ALTERNATIVE
Programs of study at PHU are designed, so courses can be completed with maximum freedom of study and flexibility. When a student enrolls in a program, course assignments are e-mailed or mailed to him/her. Students can purchase the textbooks as instructed by their instructor. Students are encouraged to contact ELAK by telephone, letter, or e-mail four weeks before the completion of each course, in other to get ready their next course materials without interruption or delay. This method helps a student to maintain his/her momentum, since he/she may be new to the distance education arena. Each course assignment has a due date. This model keeps a student on schedule.

INSTRUCTIONAL METHODS
Specialized instructor shall be assign to each student who will ALWAYS grade or assess a student's coursework. This method ensures the best education possible for a student. Moreover, Course supervisors only grade coursework in subjects they are proficient in.

EXAMINATIONS
Every college student is concerned about final exams because their final grade is most likely determined by the final exam. We have learned from experience that many good students actually freeze-up when they realize their final grade will be based on their score on the final exam. Therefore, PHU's final exam is never more than 3-5 essay questions by open book method and without a proctor. The final exam only constitutes 20% of your final grade. We have taken this stance because the studies at PHU are so extensive; it seems redundant to allow the final grade to weigh heavily on the results of the final exam.

ADVANTAGES AND SERVICES
Each course assignment is e-mailed to students with study packs included at no extra cost except printed copies as may be requested by the students.  All textbooks used in our programs are written by the most competent authors who are experts in their field internationally or locally. ELAK –PHU uses innovative concepts, its leaders have developed over many years of experience in the field of distance/non-traditional education. These methods have proven time and again to be of benefit to students according to their own testimonies. Some colleges that specialize in Distance Learning Education seldom mention what a student should do when they have a question and need to talk with a professor. Not only do we allow students to call us at any time on our hotline to speak with their course instructors or Supervisor, but we encourage this. Few colleges make such a statement since they prefer not to be bothered with telephone calls or emails once a student enrolls. Imagine how wonderful this service is for a student who is struggling with a certain subject.

TUITION
Tuition is as indicated on PHU Tuition Fees 

PAYMENT: All payments are made to ELAK (PHU e-campus Center Nigeria) for all students within the region.

REFUNDS
When a student withdraws from a degree program within 30 days from the date of enrollment, the full tuition will be refunded. Any materials or textbooks provided by PHU must be returned before a refund will be given. 50% of the tuition will be returned to a student when he/she withdraws between 30-60 days of acceptance. No refund will be given after 60 days of acceptance.

LATE FEES
Students electing to pay for their program on a monthly basis will be charged a late fee if the tuition payment is not received by ELAK by end of the month.

NOTE: Repeated late payments and/or failure by a student to pay a contract as agreed, may adversely affect a person's credit rating. If a student becomes 60 days past due on payments, grades, and courses will not be sent until the student's account becomes current.

TIME LIMITS FOR DEGREE COMPLETION
A student is sent only one course at a time. In most instances a student is allowed eight to ten weeks to complete each course. This is important, inasmuch as when a "Turn-In" date is not given to a student, they tend to lag behind and get discouraged.
NOTE: Extensions are allowable in some cases when approved by ELAK academic director.
