Questions and Answers

Many of our Online Summer School Policies and Procedures are covered in this section. Please read carefully.

 Q: Is there a Face to Face Orientation on the first day of Summer School? NO.  Student are encourage to take a look at our ORIENTATION VIDEOS
 Q:  What if I am going on vacation and can't get online when I am away? You have signed up for an online course.  You need to be able to access the internet every weekday during the course.  It is your responsibility to ensure that you have internet access.
 Q:  How much time per day do I have to spend working on my course? A:  Summer school courses are very rigorous.  You should plan on at least 5 hours a day of work. 
 Q:  Do I have to write the exam in person? Yes.  You need to have a valid reason for not being able to come in and write the exam. Being at the cottage or away on vacation are not valid reasons. 
 Q: What do I do if I think I have a valid reason for not coming in to write the exam?

 We do have a strict Proctor Process that you may apply for.  It is your responsibility to arrange a non-family member professional to take on this responsibility. Again, the use of a proctor will only be approved for legitimate absences. 
 Q:  Can I write my exam on a different day that the day it is scheduled? All online summer school exams will be written on FRIDAY July 31 at 9:00 AM.  You may not write the exam at an earlier date or a later date.  
 Q:  Does it matter if I use a Mac or PC? No.  The system that we use (D2L) works fine on both. What matters is the browser that you use.  Please use the most current versions of Google Chrome. 
 Q: Do I have to be online at specific times of the day?No.  You can work on your course at times that are convenient to  you. The important thing to remember is that you don't want to fall behind.  If you don't login for a few days, the work will quickly pile up.
