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.

Participation Expectations

Class attendance at CCV is essential to your success. Online courses generally use a seven (7) calendar day "class period" which is the equivalent to the site-based course three (3) hour class period. If you cannot attend class for some reason, contact your instructor beforehand and make arrangements for making up any missed work. You should be aware that missing more than 3 classes may jeopardize course credit. Instructors count regular attendance and class participation as a completion requirement for courses.

Class attendance is of the utmost importance and since online classes meet online and not in person, the attendance policy has to be interpreted in a slightly different way than onsite classes. Therefore, several different things will be taken into consideration when attendance grades are calculated:

  • If a student doesn’t submit any posts to the discussion forum or does not submit any work in Connect during any given week, they will be considered absent
  • If a student submits one or more posts in the discussion forum or completes the weekly Connect assignment, they will be considered present

Missing & Late Work Policy

I only accept late assignments unless prior notice is given or an emergency arises. If an emergency does come up, please contact me via email at your earliest convenience. Late assignments and/or exams that are not completed before the deadline will be handled on a case to case basis.

Please contact me as soon as you realize you may not make the deadline. The first week is flexible due to late books, latecomers to class, etc. Starting with the second week we will stick to this process and if you are submitting late for any reason - you had to work late, you are sick with a cold, you are on vacation, you simply forgot - you need to let me know ASAP and it will be handled on a case to case basis.

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.
