Completing a course in an accelerated format requires that students take a great deal of responsibility for their own learning outcomes. For face-to-face classes, students are expected to attend each and every class and arrive punctually. For hybrid and online courses, students are expected to attend class meetings as scheduled and participate regularly in the online environment throughout the course.
In the case of a family, personal, professional or medical emergency, the student is required to notify the faculty member as soon aware of the situation. He/she will help you to make arrangements to complete your work if at all possible.
Students who miss two or more class meetings of a face-to-face seven-week course will not be able to complete the course or receive a passing grade. Students should drop the course immediately after missing the second class. If the second class missed occurs after the close of the drop period, students will receive an "F" for the course.
Students who miss due dates for two or more assignments in an online or hybrid" course will not be able to complete the course or receive a passing grade. Students should drop the course immediately after missing the second assignment. If the second assignment missed occurs after the close of the drop period, the student will receive an "F" for the course.
*Please note that missing the due date for one assignment and missing a class meeting in a hybrid course would constitute two assignments.
Required Coverage: All students who are enrolled at least 3/4 time (9 credits) are required by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to be covered under an acceptable health insurance plan. It is assumed that all students will be covered under the student health insurance secured through Emmanuel College. All full-time students are automatically billed for the health insurance premium.
Waiver Form: Any full-time student who is covered under another health insurance plan and does not wish to be covered under Emmanuel College's health insurance plan must submit a signed waiver form to the Business Office. The waiver form is available online through www.universityhealthplans.com. The signed waiver must be submitted to the Business Office by the assigned date (to be announced by the Business Office). The health insurance premium will be removed from your bill only after the signed waiver is received. Any student who does not meet the deadline will be charged in full for the premium. In addition, once the premium is paid, it cannot be refunded.
Voluntary Coverage: Any student who is less than full-time (less than 12 credits) is not required to enroll in the health insurance plan. However, all students taking at least 3 credits are eligible to enroll. Please make this request in writing to the student financial services office.
Dependents: Eligible students who enroll in the student health insurance plan may purchase insurance for their dependents as defined in the Health Insurance Brochure. Please see the brochure for eligibility requirements and rates.
Graduate & Professional Program students must complete a minimum of 12 courses at Emmanuel College to receive a Bachelor's degree. Your final semester must be completed at Emmanuel College.
A matriculated student may obtain transfer credit for courses taken off-campus. A student wishing to exercise this option must obtain a study off-campus form and a copy of the regulations for study off-campus from the Center for Graduate & Professional Programs.
Academic Review Board
The Academic Review Board reviews petitions for exceptions to academic policies and monitors satisfactory academic progress of students towards degree completion.
SAP: Satisfactory Academic Progress
In order to achieve satisfactory academic progress, you must maintain a 2.0 (C) semester grade point average and must complete two-thirds of attempted credits during each academic year.
If you receive below a 2.0 in any semester, you will be placed on probation for the following semester. During this first probationary semester, you must not receive any grades of INC. If you fail to achieve satisfactory academic progress at the end of this first probationary semester, the Academic Review Board will review your record. The Academic Review Board will then either approve an academic plan designed to help you achieve academic success, which may include an imposed Leave of Absence; or, dismiss you from the College. A student under an academic plan may not receive any grades of INC, and must maintain a 2.0 grade point average during every succeeding semester or he/she will be dismissed from the college.
A minimum of 128 credits is required for the undergraduate bachelor's degree. A cumulative grade point average of 2.0 is required for graduation. Only courses with a semester grade of 2.0 or above are accepted for major courses and minor courses; grades of 2.0 or above are accepted for other courses.
