Distance Education Participation

Coastal Pines Technical College (CPTC) is committed to providing students the opportunity to access quality instruction online. Establishing a consistent and acceptable pattern of logging in and submitting work is considered an integral part of the total educational process. Employers who hire Technical College System of Georgia graduates consistently stress the importance of having a good punctuality record. Students are receiving an education for direct entry into the workforce. CPTC has the responsibility of attempting to instill in each student the importance of a good attendance and punctuality record. Because of this importance, an evaluation of participation is done in each course.

Students in distance education classes must complete an academic assignment within the first five (5) calendar days of the academic term. Students who fail to complete an academic assignment within five days will be considered a "No Show". Students enrolled in distance education classes should actively participate in class assignments as prescribed by the course syllabus and/or instructor. Students in Distance Education courses should follow the procedures for participation and withdrawal as outlined for all courses in the handbook.
