Inside the Classroom: Attendance Policies
CCCOnline courses are taught in an asynchronous manner and do not have regularly scheduled class meeting times. However, it is important to follow the instructions on your course syllabus and schedule regarding assignment deadlines, online discussion requirements and quiz/exam dates. We strongly encourage you to log into your class at least once every 48 hours. If you are unable to log in regularly due to unforeseen circumstances, please contact your instructor directly.
Additionally, to assist in authenticating identity, students may be presented with random pop-up security questions when logging into their courses. CCCOnline will carefully monitor student participation in classes using both automated login information and personalized reports from instructors regarding student activity. Students who are inactive in their course for an extended period of time may be contacted by CCCOnline. Please read the official Course Authentication and Participation Policy (CAPP) .
Please be aware that if you do not log into your class and complete the required academic assignments that are due before the census date (the last day to drop the class stated on the Academic Calendar on our website), you will be reported to your college as a “no show” and will be dropped from your class.
Plan on spending approximately 9 hours studying and participating online per week, per 3-credit course. For a 4-credit course, plan on approximately 12 hours of studying and participating online per week, and for a 5-credit course, plan on approximately 15 hours of studying and participating online per week. These study estimates are approximations; you may need to spend more time than is suggested here.
Course Re-Enrollment Policy
Colorado Community Colleges Online sets its academic calendar with student success in mind. To be considered for re-enrollment, students must have accessed the course within the past seven(7) days of the re-enrollment request. If students meet this requirement, they will be re-enrolled into the course, unless they were dropped for non-participation. Students dropped for non-participation will not be re-enrolled. If students have not accessed the course within the last seven(7) days prior to submitting the re-enrollment form, or if their academic standing at their home college prohibits re-enrollment, their request for re-enrollment will be denied.
Due to the accelerated nature of the fast-track 6-week and 4-week courses, students who drop or are dropped from those courses for any reason will not be re-enrolled.
Please note that if you were dropped by your instructor for non-participation you will NOT be allowed to re-enroll in the course.
Students who complete the re-enrollment request form will be sent either an approval or denial from CCCOnline Student Services, via email correspondence, usually within 24 hours (during the business week) of submitting their request.
