Attendance Policy

Regular attendance and participation in classes are essential for success in and are completion requirements for courses at CCV. A student's failure to meet attendance requirements as specified in course descriptions will normally result in a non-satisfactory grade.

  • In general, missing more than 20% of a course due to absences, lateness or early departures may jeopardize a student's ability to earn a satisfactory final grade.
  • Attending an on-ground or synchronous course means a student appeared in the live classroom for at least a meaningful portion of a given class meeting. Attending an online course means a student posted a discussion forum response, completed a quiz or attempted some other academically required activity. Simply viewing a course item or module does not count as attendance.
  • Meeting the minimum attendance requirement for a course does not mean a student has satisfied the academic requirements for participation, which require students to go above and beyond simply attending a portion of the class. Faculty members will individually determine what constitutes participation in each course they teach and explain in their course descriptions how participation factors into a student's final grade.

Missing & Late Work Policy

This class runs from Tuesday - Monday each week. This is not a self-paced class. It is designed so that students are all working on the same material at the same time. Assignments will not be opened early so that students can work ahead of the rest of the class. All assignments open at 12:01 Tuesday mornings and are due at 11:59 pm on Monday nights.

There is a 2-day "grace period" each week (until Wednesday at 11:59 pm). You may take advantage of this grace period as necessary. No permission is needed. Any assignments submitted during the grace period will be subject to a 10% penalty.No extensions will be granted beyond the grace period.

If you require an alteration to the course schedule, please contact your advisor to complete the steps necessary to receive an academic accommodation.

Note: the grace period is not available the last week of the semester, due to the grade submission deadline.

Unless otherwise stated, initial discussion board posts are due by Fridays at 11:59 pm. The grace period policy does not apply to discussion board posts.

Accessibility Services for Students with Disabilities:

CCV strives to mitigate barriers to course access for students with documented disabilities. To request accommodations, please
  1. Provide disability documentation to the Accessibility Coordinator at your academic center. https://ccv.edu/discover-resources/students-with-disabilities/
  2. Request an appointment to meet with accessibility coordinator to discuss your request and create an accommodation plan.
  3. Once created, students will share the accommodation plan with faculty. Please note, faculty cannot make disability accommodations outside of this process.

Academic Integrity

CCV has a commitment to honesty and excellence in academic work and expects the same from all students. Academic dishonesty, or cheating, can occur whenever you present -as your own work- something that you did not do. You can also be guilty of cheating if you help someone else cheat. Being unaware of what constitutes academic dishonesty (such as knowing what plagiarism is) does not absolve a student of the responsibility to be honest in his/her academic work. Academic dishonesty is taken very seriously and may lead to dismissal from the College.
