Academic Honesty: 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.

Student Support & Policies

ATTENDANCE

Attendance will be taken every week. Regular attendance and participation in classes are essential components of your success at CCV and in college generally. It is also directly tied to your financial aid. Please note the following:

  • Only 2 absences are allowed. A third absence will result in 10% drop in your final grade. More than three absences will result in a failing grade.
  • Stay in touch. In the case of an emergency or genuine inability to attend class, please notify me before class whenever possible.
  • Plan ahead. There may be times when you need to miss class for legitimate reasons (e.g. if you think you have the flu). Think about how you can arrange your time and have supports in place so that you don’t miss class for non-essential reasons.

LATE WORK


Completing assignments on time is essential for getting the most out of class and doing well. Please note the following:

  • Any work not handed in on the scheduled due date will lose credit. You will lose 10% EACH DAY an assignment is late (beginning the day it is due) and then may not be accepted.
  • Late work will NOT be accepted on the discussion forum, since the goal of those assignments is to interact with each other.
  • Assignments are due on time always.
  • You are responsible for making sure that I can open and read work submitted electronically. If you send me a document or file that is somehow corrupted, I will not consider that work “received” or “submitted” on time. So it is best to copy and paste from your word program when posting in discussions and case studies.

  • Make-ups for tests are only possible for extenuating circumstances and with prior approval. You must take a test within ONE week and BEFORE the next class meeting.You are responsible for checking Canvas and getting any notes, materials, assignments for the class you miss.
  • Remember this course is strictly online and we go week to week. All assignments should be completed by the end of the week.

Please review the following policies and support services:

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.

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.
