Addendum to Career College of Northern Nevada’s College Catalog
RE: Attendance Policy
Page 6 of our current college catalog explains our attendance policy. The policy is designed to
address on ground learning in the classroom. As we transition to an online (blended)
environment we are making an adjustment to the attendance policy that allows students to
pick the time to do their online course work.
Effective March 16, 2020, student attendance will be monitored through two channels. First,
Online activity on the Moodle.ccnn.edu server. You must log in and do learning activities or
submit assignments at least once each week. Two, students must schedule time with the
instructor to complete lab work on campus. Students who do not log in and complete course
work or come onto campus to complete lab work each week will be contacted by the Student
Success Director, Academic Dean or the faculty member in charge of the course to determine
remedial work to stay caught up. Students who fail to take the final exam as scheduled will be
deemed to have withdrawn unless prior approval is gained from the instructor to take the exam
later than the end of the term. Under no circumstances will final exams be extended more than
one week from the end of the term.
Students who fail to submit work or come on campus to complete lab work for two weeks or
otherwise fall behind on progression will be placed on attendance probation. While on
attendance probation the student must make contact with the Student Success Director to
discuss progress on their individual progress plan each week. Students who are on attendance
probation and fail to make contact with the student success director for two consecutive weeks
will be dismissed.
For the current phase (February 24 – April 10) we will expect work to be submitted by the end
of week 5 (March 27) as we transition students into this new online environment. We
encourage you to get started immediately and to set a routine to do your coursework during
the same times as you would have been taking the classes had we not cancelled the face to face
classes. This will set a routine in your life and make it easier to stay on track to graduation. But
we recognize that there will be issues to work out during the transition.
