Incompletes An incomplete grade may be assigned if you have not completed some portion of the assigned work during the regular term due to extenuating circumstances. Through special arrangements with the instructor, you may complete remaining work during a specific amount of time in the following terms but not to exceed eight (8) weeks. An incomplete grade that is not completed during the specified time will be changed to an “F” failing grade. An “Incomplete Contract” must be signed by you and your instructor and returned to the Student Services Office to verify the agreement. The “Incomplete Contract” may be obtained at the Student Services Office or by logging onto www.nwicc.edu. Go to “Student Resources” and click on “Registrar.” Course Syllabi Students should refer to course syllabi for course expectations, grading criteria, attendance, and other class policies. Attendance You are expected to attend class, labs, and other course experiences as scheduled. Instructors will advise you on the policies for attendance and tardiness at the beginning of each term. If you have excessive absences, you may be withdrawn from class at the discretion of the instructor, Academic Dean and Vice President of Student & Academic Services. If you violate the attendance policy after the last day of withdrawal, you will receive the grade earned. Attendance requirements may affect VA or other financial aid benefits. If you know you must be absent, it is your responsibility to notify your instructor as soon as possible. Last day of attendance will be determined by the last time the student attended class or logged into an online class. Students who have not attended (including online) within the first ten calendar days of the beginning of their course will be removed. Minors in the Classroom In order not to disrupt the learning activities of the College, students, staff, and visitors, are not permitted to have minor children accompany them into classrooms, computer labs, laboratories, studios, or clinical settings even if supervised, except during officially College-sanctioned special programs or events (e.g., Junior Career Day, 8th Grade Career Day, summer camps, etc.) without prior written approval from the Vice President of Student and Academic Services. Repeating Courses You may repeat a course. Provisions of this policy are as follows: 1. You may repeat a course as many times as you wish unless specific courses/programs state otherwise. 2. The original grade will appear on your transcript with an “R” (repeat) next to it. The “R” carries no credit nor does it affect your grade point average. 3. The last grade issued will be computed in your record. 4. You are required to pay normal tuition and fees for repeated courses. If you have questions regarding how this policy applies to your situation, you should discuss it with the Registrar. Financial Aid is limited for repeated courses. Financial Aid can be used for one repetition after passing a course. After that, additional repetitions will not be included in Financial Aid eligibility. Check with the Financial Aid Office for further information.

Transfer Information NCC will accept the credits awarded for successful work at a properly accredited college or university. If you are in Arts and Sciences, all acceptable college credit will be evaluated by the Registrar and transfer credit awarded. This transfer credit information will be available during the initial enrollment term. The credit evaluation will be placed on your college transcript. NCC will accept a maximum of 16 semester hours of Vocational/Technical credit only as elective credit towards the Associate of Arts and Associate of Science degrees. If you are enrolled in Career and Technical programs, transfer credit may be evaluated by the Registrar, Academic Dean, and program instructor to determine if similar coursework will apply to NCC’s program. This transfer information will be placed on your transcript. NCC will accept grades corresponding to “C” or better for transfer if the grades are from a properly accredited institution. Decisions about the applicability of transfer courses toward the College’s requirements will be made by the Registrar’s Office. Any questions regarding this should be directed to the Registrar.
