Academic Policies

Online Course Participation Policy

The asynchronous design of the courses allows for students to participate at any time or any location. Just as on-campus students are required to attend each class session and to participate in class activities, online students are required to participate actively in each learning activity as required by the individual instructor and to complete each course assignment on time. It is the responsibility of students to make arrangements for participating in the course consistently throughout the term. An instructor has the option to lower a student’s grade for lack of timely participation.
