Each online class has weekly assignments. These assignments are to be turned in within the time-frame indicated for each assignment. Similarly, tests, quizzes, forum discussions and other course related activities are to be turned in when indicated by the instructor. Late work may be turned in, but it may be penalized or given a zero for a grade. The Swamp School reserves the right to modify this policy on a case by case basis.
In the event that the student falls more than 2 weeks behind during the class term, the student's course access will be suspended without notice until the student contacts the Swamp School to discuss continuation of the class or transfer to another session. It is up to the student to contact the Swamp School to discuss re-enrollment options.
In the event that an enrolled online student is unable to complete the coursework associated with a given class with the allotted course schedule, the student must notify The Swamp School in writing requesting an extension or transfer prior to the end of the class term. The Swamp School can grant up to a two week extension beyond the end of the regular course term. However, no more than two weeks worth of assignments can be submitted at one time during the extension period.
If it is not possible for the student to complete the class during the extension period, the student will be given the option to withdraw from the class or request a transfer to the another scheduled class session. Transfers can only be made into the same class that was originally purchased and the transfer must be within 12 months of the original class start date. There are no refunds for withdrawals.
If a student wishes to transfer to another section of the same class there will be a transfer fee of 25% of the original tuition amount. The transfer must be requested in writing before the end of the class the student originally registered for. Re-enrollment is not transferable to another student.
If the student does not notify The Swamp School of a withdrawal, transfer or extension request prior to the end of the regular class term, the student will receive an incomplete grade and any tuition or fees will be forfeit. It is entirely incumbent upon the student to notify The Swamp School as to their ability to complete the class within the regular class session.
If an incomplete or failing grade has been issued, the student must register and pay for a new class session in order to receive credit for that class. If the student does re-enroll and completes the same class with a passing grade, The Swamp School will only record the passing grade of that class in the student's permanent record.
