It is the policy of the consortium that students attending classes at university sites are expected to be physically present at those university sites during class time. However, there are situations in which students are unable to attend classes at the universities’ sites and may be permitted to take as “remote site” students. To be considered a remote site student, students must be more than 90 minutes of one-way travel time to the closest participating university (under normal circumstance) OR have a documented medical need. A limited number of students may become remote site students. Determination of this is at the Consortium’s discretion and students who meet the criteria do not automatically qualify to be a remote site student. See FAQ section below for additional information.
Each institution will ensure that students have access to all learning resources and services required for successful completion of the Certificate of Applied Behavior Analysis/BACB®-approved coursework sequence. Services and resources include, but are not limited to, library resources, faculty support, administrative resources, technology infrastructure, and similar services.
Student Academic Integrity and Conduct
Students are required to follow the regulations governing academic integrity and personal conduct at the offering institution. In the event of academic dishonesty or misconduct, the offering institution has the authority to proceed according to its regulations as far as the particular course and future enrollments are concerned. If the problem merits a change in the student’s status, it shall be reported to the home institution’s registrar by the offering institution’s registrar. Supporting documentation will be sent to the home institution’s registrar. The home institution may take any additional action it deems appropriate. The home institution will share the students’ status with other Consortium institutions.
Student Tuition, Fees, and Financial Arrangements
Payment of tuition for courses taken through the Consortium will be made through the regular procedure of the student’s home institution and will be based on the rate applicable there. Tuition and fees for each institution will remain at that institution. There will be no funding exchanged among institutions. There will be no follow-up payment reconciliation among the institutions. Should a significant enrollment imbalance develop, the issue will be addressed by the executive committee.
In the case of inclement weather, the instructor for the course will determine whether the class will meet as scheduled. The instructor will e-mail all students should the course be cancelled or the schedule of the course be modified in any way. E-mail will be the primary means of communication and it is the students’ responsibility to check e-mail for this information.
If a student determines they cannot attend class due to inclement weather, they must notify the instructor to discuss how information from the course may be obtained. It is at the instructor’s discretion as to whether a student may make up any assignments that occurred during the class that was missed. It is the student’s responsibility to obtain information from the class session.
