PROCEDURES FOR IMPLEMENTATION AND REVIEW

Policy Administrators:

Enter Policy Administrators here.

Policy Review Cycle:

Every 4 years

Procedures:

For 8 week courses, the student has 8 weeks from the sub-term course activation date to complete the course.  For 16 week courses, the student has 16 weeks from the sub-term course activation date to complete the course. Students are expected to submit tests and coursework throughout the term.  At the end of the first week of each sub-term, courses are reviewed to determine if the student is attending in the course. If the student has not submitted an academic assignment (such as the Course Requirements Checklist, an examination, written paper or project, discussion board post,  or other academic  activity), the student will be dropped from the course.  Students who wish to re-engage in the course are encouraged to contact Academic Advising to discuss their enrollment options.

Students who begin attending by submitting an academic assignment but eventually cease progressing toward the completion of the course will be assigned a grade of FN during the semester. If the student receives all FN’s in a term, the student is subject to the Unofficial Withdrawal procedure which includes the reduction and/or return of all Financial Aid. Additionally, students receiving all F’s in a term must appeal to Financial Aid to receive aid in their next term of enrollment. Students may drop a course for a full refund, prior to the beginning of the sub-term.  Beginning on the first day of the sub-term, students who have attended may withdraw from a course for a grade of W.
