In addition to the CMAllianceU Site Policies, CDLC has some policies that apply only to this program.
Withdrawal & Refund Policies
- Tuition for CDLC enrollment is refundable if you cancel your enrollment 10 days prior to the course start date. If you are planning on cancelling your enrollment, you will need to notify both the program administrator (Erin Garrido) at email@example.com and the CMAllianceU Registrar (firstname.lastname@example.org) immediately.
- If you choose to withdraw from the CDLC at anytime after the course start date, your tuition will not be refunded. However, it is transferrable to another section of the CDLC for up to one year. If an unforeseen circumstance causes you to withdraw but you would like to continue at a future date, the amount you have already paid will be held for one year and applied toward your balance. Extenuating and special circumstances may be taken into consideration.
- You should first discuss withdrawal from the CDLC with your assigned coach, who will notify the Dean of your decision. You will also need to complete and submit a withdrawal form.
- For questions, please contact the program administrator (Erin Garrido) at email@example.com.
- Throughout the length of the certificate, students are expected to maintain a C (70%) grade average to remain in the program and receive the certificate. Successful completion of the program requires a 70% or above for a final grade. At three intervals, all grades will be evaluated to ensure students are maintaining a C average: the end of Unit 4, the end of Unit 8 and the end of Unit 12.
Required Textbooks and Resources
- Course textbooks are to be read in their entirety, unless otherwise stated. The order of reading is determined by the course schedule, found in the syllabus.
- The guidelines for assignments are based on MLA-style formatting. Detailed instructions and examples are given in the syllabus.
Extensions for Assignments
- Assignments are due by the end of each month of the unit the assignments are given. Prior arrangements may be made with your coach for a one-week extension with no penalty. Unless arranged prior to the due date, assignments not submitted by this deadline will automatically be given a one-week extension with a penalty of 20%. The assignment is then due no later than 6:00 p.m. one week from its original due date, without exceptions. If the assignment is not received within one week, an automatic F (O points) is given.
Respect for Divergent Viewpoints
- Students and coaches are to respect the viewpoints of others in the classroom. Part of the higher educational experience is to dialogue and form critical thinking skills. We must remain gracious in the process, but it does not necessitate agreement or acceptance.
- Plagiarism is defined in the MLA Handbook as the use of another's ideas or expressions without proper acknowledgement. Plagiarism is not limited to word for word copying; it includes any false assumption of authorship, including paraphrasing lines of reasoning from a printed source and copying or stealing from an unpublished writer.
- Although it can be unintentional, plagiarism is always a serious ethical and moral offense. Examples of plagiarism include, but are not limited to: buying a paper from a public source, copying material from a printed source, soliciting or allowing someone to submit material for you, submitting previously written material without the consent of the faculty member, and failing to cite source material adequately or properly, thereby failing to acknowledge the author or authors whose ideas and work are being used.
- The penalty for plagiarism will include automatic failure for the certificate. Incidents of plagiarism shall be reported to both the Dean and the Assistant Dean of the CDLC.
- Note that Alliance Official Workers are also subject to the Plagiarism Policy adopted by the Board of Directors and available in the most current edition of the C&MA Manual.
Reasonable accommodations are made for students who have disabilities that may affect their ability to meet the course requirements. Please contact the Dean of the CDLC to discuss your needs and options.
