Welcome - http://welcome.pbworks.com

Check In/Drop Policy

Only students who are officially enrolled in the class will have access to the online class.  It is your responsibility to complete the registration process at the LAMC Admissions Office.

Once you are enrolled, you need to login to your etudes and begin participating in the course within three (3) days. The Winter 2014 session consists of five accelerated weeks, starting on 1/6/14 and concluding on Sunday, 2/9/14 @ 11:59 pm  Weekly assignments, and activities, including quizzes, and discussion forums start on Monday, and end on Sunday evening at 11:59 pm

 

 

By 11:59 pm on 1/12/14 (the end of the 1st week of class) you must login to your class and post your introduction.

It is the students sole responsibility to officially withdraw from the class. You do this at your Student Information System.

Dropping Class - Deadlines  

 

Dropping your class/Exclusion:    (by internet) is the last day to drop the class with a "W"

College regulations state that a student may be excluded from a course following accumulation of absences equal to a week of course work.  The 12th week of class is the last date a student may drop a class with a "W".  (or the 8th week in a "Late Start" class). Thereafter, the student must receive a grade in the class.

 

If a student has a accumulated score of 50 or below in the 12th week (or the 8th week in a "late Start" class) , it is deemed that the student has accumulated absences in excess of a week of course work, and the instructor MAY, but is NOT required to DROP the student from class, with or without notice. It is the sole responsibility of the student, and not the instructor, to drop the class

In addition, students who fail to login and post their introduction to class within the first (ten) days of class may be dropped from their online class.

 


Late Work  Policy

Read Very Carefully

Students will NOT be able to submit assignments or access quizzes AFTER the due/closing date. Requests to submit late assignments or quizzes must be made PRIOR to the due date and will be discretionary. Generally permission to submit late work is only granted in extreme family or personal circumstances, and not because the student failed to submit the work in a timely fashion.

 

Late postings to discussion forums will NOT be graded, reviewed or given credit. The time to post is 11:55 pm on the given due date (unless posted earlier, check your duedates for  your class). Any postings to discussion forums after 11:55 pm, or as scheduled in your online classroom, will earn NO CREDIT or POINTS. Reason: paralegals must learn to keep strict deadlines when they deal with courts, attorneys, judges, clerks, etc.

All pre-approved late assignments will only be accepted during the LAST week of class. If you send or submit an assignment or quiz via email or otherwise before the last week of class, you will receive NO consideration, nor receive credit. (**special thanks to BM for developing above policy)

Thanks for your understanding and cooperation.
