Additional Information

College Preparatory Studies Attendance Policy

An absence is defined as the following:

Because this is an on-line course you will earn an attendance grade each week based on the completed assignment(s) for that week. You must log in and complete required assignments on a weekly basis. This is not a self-paced course. Even if you are ahead , you must still log in and complete assignments until you have completed the course.

There are NO excused absences. The Department of College Preparatory Studies will notify students of absences reported by instructors and one courtesy warning e-mail notification will be sent to the students’ current NCTC student e-mail address when the student accrues 3 hours (1 week) absence in a course. Failure to read and/or receive NCTC e-mail is no excuse for not complying with the Attendance Policy. It is the student's responsibility to maintain correct and current e-mail and local and permanent addresses with the college.

After a student has been absent from class 6 hours (2 weeks), the student may be dropped. If the student is dropped from the only College Prep class in which he/she is enrolled and is TSI liable, the student will be DROPPED from all remaining courses for that semester.
