COVID-19 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: How are grades going to work at NCC? A: Your student’s grades at NCC as of March 13, 2020 can only improve. If your student would like to improve their NCC program, English or math grade, we would ask that they contact their instructor to request activities to replace missing or poorly scored assignments or assessments. No additional graded assignments will be given beyond March 13th. However, Instructors will also enter a final employability cycle that was completed March 13th, our last day in session before the closure.
Q: Will my student earn credit for this semester? A: Consistent participation in continuous learning will ensure your student will receive course credit. If a student chooses not to participate in continuous learning, the student may be in jeopardy of not receiving credit for the course, including NCC English and Math (if applicable).
