SCHEDULE OF CLASSES
In an effort to provide students the best materials possible to plan their class schedule in advance, SC4 publishes two college credit schedules yearly: Spring/Summer/Fall and Winter/Spring/Summer. College Credit Class Schedules are available online at www.sc4.edu/wave, in the Enrollment Services Office and at off-campus centers. Requests for schedules may be made by e-mailing email@example.com or by contacting (810) 989-5502. SC4 offers classes in a variety of formats including day, evening, week-end, online, accelerated and short-term and other formats. Students are encouraged to register early in order to take full advantage of these opportunities.
There are two ways to register for classes:
Online: Students may register for classes online via the WAVE at www.sc4.edu/wave.
SC4 students will not be allowed to register if they owe outstanding balances to the college for tuition or fees.
If a student wishes to register for a course and receive no credit, the student must indicate "audit" either on their Registration Form or through online registration. "Audit" means that a student has registered, paid, and is attending a college credit course, but will receive no credit or grade for the course. Students auditing a class are still required to meet all course prerequisites. Students who choose to "audit" a class must designate this registration status at the time of registration or by the end of the drop/add period. Once a class has been registered as an "audit," no adjustments may be made to change the course status to college credit once the drop/add period has ended. Conversely, once a class has been registered for college credit, a student may not change the status of the class to "audit" after the drop/add period has ended. Students failing to comply with this requirement will be held responsible for the resulting consequences. Ultimately, it is the student's responsibility to verify the accuracy of the Registration and Billing Statement at the time of registration.
Students planning to take courses at one of the SC4 of -campus centers may register online via www.sc4.edu/wave, in person in the Enrollment Services Office, or at the off-campus center.
RESIDENT AND NON-RESIDENT POLICY (determines tuition rate)
SC4 students are responsible for maintaining an accurate address at the college for the purpose of billing tuition appropriately, mailing grades, mailing schedules, and mailing other pertinent information. Because residency corresponds to a student's address and consequently determines tuition rates, a student wishing to be classified as an SC4 in-district resident, which qualifies them for the in-district tuition rate, must meet the following requirements:
Note: Students with an F-1 Visa cannot establish residency.
Residency of all students under 18 years of age follows that of their parents or legal guardians. The current SC4 District does not include persons living in St. Clair County who reside in Anchor Bay, Armada, Richmond or Croswel-Lexington school districts. Students who falsify their residency will be subject to payment of tuition at the correct residency rate. Charges in such cases will be retroactive. Students who have moved from out-district to in-district must complete a Change of Residency Form and provide two (2) pieces of proof of their residency prior to the first day of classes for the semester. Requests made after this date will be applied toward tuition adjustments beginning with the next semester of enrollment. One proof must be a Michigan driver's license or Michigan ID with the current address. The second proof may be one of the following:
NAME AND ADDRESS CHANGES
Students are required to report name and address changes to the Enrollment Services Office directly. As a matter of convenience, students may print the Name and Address Change form located on the SC4 Web site. Students may also submit address changes online via www.sc4.edu/wave. If the address is being changed from an out-district address to an in-district address, residency change procedures must be followed as outlined in the aforementioned section. Failure to submit the necessary forms pertaining to a given semester may result in the Enrollment Services Office being unable to provide requested services. As a result, students will be held responsible for the consequences of such action.
SC4 makes every attempt to keep all classes open, however, it is unfortunate that some classes must be cancelled due to low enrollment. Students whose class(es) has been cancelled will be notified and refunded the full tuition. SC4 encourages students in this situation to register for another class(es) because Late Registration will continue for a limited period of time once classes have begun. Refer to the Schedule of Classes for dates/times of Late Registration.
FACULTY ABSENCE TELEPHONE LINE
The college has established a telephone line, (810) 989-5770, that students can call to find out about class cancellations and faculty absences. The information on this line is updated throughout the day Monday-Friday and on Saturday by 7:00 a.m. SC4 will also use this line to inform students of college closings due to inclement weather.
DROPPING/ADDING AND LATE REGISTRATION
Students may adjust their schedule with 100% tuition refund by dropping/ adding courses either online or in person during the established deadlines for each course, as listed below.
Students are responsible to complete the appropriate drop/add procedure by the designated deadline dates. No refunds will be processed for drops processed after the established deadline.
Course Length Drop/Add with a Refund
16 weeks = 7 business days from the semester start date
CLASS WITHDRAWAL (period following Drop/Add and Late Registration)
Once the drop/add period (i.e. 100% refund) has expired, students may withdraw from classes by completing the appropriate process either online or in person. Students requesting withdrawal by the appropriate deadline will receive a final grade of "W." The established deadline dates are listed below.
Class attendance policies are established by each individual instructor and are presented to each student on the course syllabus within the first week of classes. Punctuality and regular attendance are necessary if the student is to receive maximum benefit from courses enrolled. Promptness in the fulfillment of obligations is a requirement of all courses.The responsibility for lecture and scheduled laboratory attendance rests solely with the student. When work has been affected by unexcused absences or tardiness, penalties may be imposed at the discretion of the individual instructor. As a matter of courtesy, students should explain the reason for absence to their instructors. When possible, this should be done in advance. If a student stops attending class and does not officially withdraw from the class, or make arrangements with the instructor for an "I" incomplete grade (restrictions apply), the instructor has no choice but to issue a final grade of "E" for the class.
Because academic information is protected under the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), students must make all transcript requests either in writing or online via the WAVE, SC4's secure online student information system. The Enrollment Services Office processes requests to send official transcripts to other colleges/universities, places of employment, etc.The office also processes requests to send/distribute unofficial transcripts to students on a as needed basis. There is no charge to process transcript requests at SC4.Transcript Requests may be submitted online via the WAVE or forms may be completed by students in the Enrollment Services Office. In addition, forms may be printed from the SC4 Web site and faxed to (810) 989-5541. The Transcript Request form includes full name, birth date, social security number (or Canadian social insurance number), approximate dates of attendance, other last name(s) if different from the current name that the student record may be filed under, number of official or unofficial copies to be sent, name and address of where the transcript(s) is to be sent and the student's signature.
Note: Normally, transcripts sent to students directly are unofficial copies unless the student has specifically indicated in writing on the Transcript Request form that they wish to receive an official transcript. Transcript requests are generally processed on a daily basis except during the time that final grades are being processed for a given semester. Students who owe tuition dollars to SC4 or who have other obligations will be prevented from receiving transcripts (official/unofficial) and diplomas until all financial issues are resolved with the SC4 Business Office.
