IDEA Course Evaluations

November 29, 2016 Academic, Administrative Comments Off on IDEA Course Evaluations Posted By: Cathy Trout

Selected courses are evaluated each semester, and students will have an opportunity to complete evaluation surveys. If you are in a course that is scheduled to be evaluated, you will receive an email from Cathy Trout (ctrout@huntington.edu) that will have a link to follow to the course survey. Once you have completed the survey, you will no longer receive emails for that course. Students will have from November 28 through December 9 to complete the surveys. Your professor may wish to have the class complete the surveys during a class time, and if so, please wait for instructions. It is important to faculty to receive feedback from you and your participation is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Thanksgiving Break/Final Exam, Etc.

November 17, 2016 Academic, General Comments Off on Thanksgiving Break/Final Exam, Etc. Posted By: Cathy Trout

Thanksgiving Break begins Wednesday, November 23. Students should not plan to leave campus early for travel purposes. Our policy states that unless it is a family emergency, students are expected to attend classes the week prior to the break and faculty are required to meet all of their regularly scheduled classes. There are no “excused” absences (illness, funerals, athletic contests, and other necessary absences are included in the total number of absences counted). As a reminder, here is the class attendance policy, and below that, a link to the final exam schedule.

CLASS ATTENDANCE REMINDER: Students are expected to be punctual and regular in class attendance and to accept responsibility for all assigned work. Any student who has been absent for as many as one-third of the total class sessions for a course will have failed and will be suspended from the course. Within this framework, each instructor may set his/her own class attendance policy, and will inform students of this policy at the beginning of the term. Class sessions missed because of illness or late registration will be counted as absences. There are no “excused” absences (illness, funerals, athletic contests, and other necessary absences are included in the total number of absences counted). In case of extenuating circumstances, a suspended student may petition the Academic Concerns Committee to be readmitted to the class. At the discretion of the faculty member, missed work may be “made up.”

FINAL EXAM SCHEDULE: may be found at https://www.huntington.edu/uploads/page/Final_Exam_Grid_Fall_2016_(1).pdf

Travel plans are not a basis for petitioning for a schedule change. Faculty are under no obligation to honor requests from students to accommodate travel plans.
