Wilmington College Guidelines for Accelerated Courses
Accelerated courses, especially designed for working adults, are intense learning
experiences with fewer class contact hours and more independent study. Attendance at
all class meetings is mandatory, and students are required to complete a preassignment
before the first class session.
The following are Wilmington College Cincinnati Branch policies regarding accelerated
Preassignment: Students are expected to prepare for the first class by completing a pre
assignment before the first class session. Failure to do so may result in the student's
being unprepared for a quiz or other form of evaluation that may be administered during
the first class. These quizzes or other evaluative tools may not be made up.
Attendance: Students are expected to attend all class sessions. If a class must be missed,
the student must communicate with the instructor before that class concerning the
absence. Failure to communicate automatically constitutes an unexcused absence. A
student may miss one class (or its equivalent) with an excused absence without penalty;
more than one absence (excused or unexcused) results in a full letter grade deduction for
each class missed.
