Student Information and College Policies

DROPPING AND WITHDRAWING FROM COURSES

Dropping a course (or courses) may occur during the first two- weeks of the semester. Courses dropped during the add/drop period will not be on your transcript.

Withdraw: The date to “withdraw” from a single course depends on the length of the course. Dates are listed above. After the last day to withdraw from a single course, a course may be dropped by permission of the Interim Vice President for Academic Affairs but only when verifiable extenuating circumstances can be demonstrated, such as illness or accidental injury. Poor performance in class is not an extenuating circumstance. After January 24th 2020, you may exercise a “Total Withdrawal” or withdraw from all of your courses with a grade of “W” and will be no longer registered for the current semester. This may occur until the Friday before Finals Week (May 1st, 2018). The withdrawal process is initiated in the Admissions/Registrar’s Office. You are financially responsible for all courses you are registered for after January 24th, 2020.

Absences due to participation in college-sponsored activities or military training are typically excused, but you should always give your instructors as much advanced notice as possible.

Connors State College PRIDE establishes an environment where PREPARATION of curriculum is done with the knowledge that all students bring with them a unique heritage.  RETENTION of students is a key goal and is encouraged by providing a safe, supportive, culturally responsive environment that acknowledges them as a person.  There is INCLUSION of stories, examples, and assignments that reflect many cultures.  DEVELOPMENT of the whole person is accomplished through the use of multiple learning styles.  ENGAGEMENT with local communities is recognized as important and encouraged.

STUDENT EMAIL

All email communication with your professor should be done through your Connors Email address. Remember to check your email regularly for information from your instructors.

 

CLASS ATTENDANCE IS IMPORTANT

Attendance usually has a very high correlation to performance in the classroom. Talk with your instructor about any absences. Many instructors consider attendance so important that your grade may be affected by absenteeism. SOME INSTRUCTORS HAVE MANDATORY ATTENDANCE POLICIES. Check your course syllabus or ask your instructor for this information.

CSC uses your CONNORSSTATE.EDU email address for correspondence. For assistance, contact the Helpdesk at cschelp@connorsstate.edu.
