Policies and Procedures
The following policies are presented in an attempt to help you understand the Art Department's expectations regarding attendance, tardiness, and assignment deadlines. It is our hope that these policies will help you to get the most out of your educational experience at North Idaho College.
Students faced with a major life crisis will be excused from class. It is the student's responsibility to inform the instructor immediately before or after any such excused absence. It is also the student's responsibility to acquire information missed due to an absence. Students missing a deadline will turn work in at the next class session without penalty.
Students are allowed two (2) unexcused absences during the course of the semester. Further unexcused absences will lower the semester grade one full letter grade for each unexcused absence. Example: 3 unexcused absences = -1 letter grade (A becomes B). Deadlines missed because of an unexcused absence may be turned in and will be graded and reduced (see "missing deadlines").
It is the student’s responsibility to acquire missed information from a classmate due to an absence.
Students arriving late for class slow down the process of learning and are an unnecessary disruption in the classroom. Students who arrive late for class or leave before class is dismissed will be marked tardy. Three tardy marks count as one unexcused absence.
Late work will be accepted, graded and reduced one letter grade for each class period late. The only exception is an excused absence.
Behavior that distracts other students from learning or the instructor from teaching is considered to be harassment (see Student Handbook). A student demonstrating such behavior can be withdrawn from the class by an “Instructor Initiated Withdrawal.”
Plagiarism is intentionally or unintentionally using another person’s ideas or expressions without acknowledging the source – it is a serious academic offense! In accordance with NIC’s Student Code of Conduct, students who plagiarize will fail the assignment and possibly the course.
NIC provides services and accommodations to students who experience barriers/difficulties in the educational setting due to learning, emotional, physical, mobility, visual, or hearing issues. For more information please contact The Disability Support Services Office in Seiter 100. (NIC Campus)
Telephone (208) 769 -5947 (calling on campus x5947)
As students undertake to fulfill the obligations and duties outlined in this document, the college community of which they are a part undertakes to respect the basic freedoms of students. In recognition of students’ rights and dignity as members of the college, North Idaho College is committed to the principles found in the NIC Student Handbook.
Center for Educational Access/Disability Support Services
In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and Section 504/508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, North Idaho College provides accommodations to eligible students who experience barriers in the educational setting due to learning, emotional / mental, physical, visual, or hearing disabilities. Instructors will provide accommodations to students only after having received a Letter of Accommodation from the Center for Educational Access.
If a student would like to request accommodations, he or she must contact the Center for Educational Access so that a Letter of Accommodation may be sent to the instructor. Students requesting accommodations must contact the Center for Educational Access at the beginning of each semester.
By registering at North Idaho College, you agree to provide payment by the due dates. You also understand that collection costs and legal fees will be added if the services of a collection agency are utilized.
If you are registered for a class and do not attend, you will still be liable for the tuition unless you drop the class.
Last day for students to withdraw from semester-length classes for the fall term: November 7, 2011.
Instructor-Initiated Withdrawal: Instructors have the right to withdraw students for academic reasons up until the same date; in doing so, instructors must notify students through NIC e-mail within 48 hours of submitting documentation to the Registrar's office, and students have the right to appeal the instructor's decision. For more information, see the NIC Procedure: http://www.nic.edu/modules/images/websites/121/file/section5/5.04.02procedure.pdf.
Financial Aid Satisfactory Progress Policy: All withdrawals, whether for individual classes, total withdrawal from school, or instructor-initiated are not considered to be satisfactory progress for financial aid. See the Financial Aid Satisfactory Progress Policy: http://www.nic.edu/Websites/index.asp?dpt=29&pageID=1336
Additional withdrawal information: http://www.nic.edu/catalog
An incomplete is assigned only if the student has been in attendance and has done satisfactory work to within three weeks of the end of the semester (or proportional length of time for a course of less than a semester in length). Incompletes are issued only in cases of extenuating circumstances, such as severe illness or injury. Incompletes are not issued in cases in which the student is simply unable to complete his/her work within the specified semester or session. If a final grade of "I" is recorded, the instructor will indicate in writing to the Registrar what the student must do to make up the deficiency. The instructor will indicate in the written statement what permanent grade should be entered if the Incomplete is not removed by the deadline.
All incomplete grades must be removed within six weeks after the first class day of the following term, excluding the summer session. If the Incomplete is not removed by that date, the grade reverts to the grade indicated by the instructor's written statement authorizing the incomplete.
Discrimination and Harassment
North Idaho College has a zero tolerance policy for any acts of discrimination or harassment of any kind. For more information, please see the NIC Student Handbook, Code of Conduct Article III and Article VIII. Compliance efforts with respect to these laws and regulations are the responsibility of each member of the campus community and are under the direction of the Dean of Students Office for Student Issues (2nd floor, ESU, 676-7156) and the Human Resources Office (Sherman Administration Building, 769-3304) for employee issues.
DROP FOR NON-PAYMENT: By registering at North Idaho College, you agree to provide payment by the due dates. You will be dropped from classes if payment is not received by 5 p.m. Pacific Time on the third day of the semester. Students on the waitlist will be given the option to register for classes after students are dropped for non-payment.
DROP FOR NON-ATTENDANCE: You must attend and participate in the first week of this class. Failure to do so will result in your being dropped from this class and may result in your financial aid award being reduced. For Internet classes, attendance is based on participation in an instructional activity; you must complete the first week’s assignment(s) by the assignment due date. Drop for non-attendance occurs at 5 p.m. Pacific Time on the second Tuesday of the semester.
