Students enrolled in concurrent enrollment programs through Truman State University (including all credit-bearing dual credit, dual enrollment, and competency-based education programs) are considered non-degree seeking undergraduate students and, like regular students, are bound by the same policies as their on-campus peers.
As university students, students are expected to take responsibility for meeting published deadlines, paying tuition and fees, and abiding by Truman policies and procedures. Where polices have been adapted to reflect the calendar at students’ high schools or because of their status as a minor (if applicable), these policies are communicated to students in writing at the time of registration. Students should be sure to read these materials carefully. All students should make a point of reading the syllabus for their course before they begin. If you are a student who does not have a syllabus, ask your teacher or contact the Institute for Academic Outreach at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If parents share responsibility, or have assumed responsibility, for paying the tuition and fees for a student’s participation in one or more Truman courses, we highly recommend that students share with their parents information about deadlines and policies as the student will ultimately be accountable for them.
As a student of Truman State University, one is expected to abide by the Student Conduct Code, which includes policies pertaining to academic dishonesty and non-discrimination. Students can also find detailed information about other Truman policies and procedures in the University Catalog.
The standard mode of communication for University business is e-mail. All Truman students, including non-degree seeking students, are issued a Truman network ID and instructions for setting-up a password upon enrollment. Students who will not use the associated email account regularly are encouraged to view their email in Truview, where they can also access their tuition bill and other student records. Students are responsible for monitoring their email on a regular basis for communications from the University regarding upcoming deadlines, policy updates, and reminders about unpaid bills, among other communications.
Should students wish to appeal decisions relating to these policies, including their grade in a course, they should begin by raising their concerns with their class instructor/professor. Concerns that cannot be addressed by their instructor/professor, or appeals of decisions made by their instructor/professor, should be directed to the Institute for Academic Outreach at email@example.com or 660-785-5384. If the appeal is more appropriately handled by another support office of Truman State University, the Institute will help direct the student to the office or individual with whom they need to communicate.
The Institute for Academic Outreach is open to answer questions from 8 am – 5 pm, Monday-Friday, except during published University holidays. After hours inquiries can be left on voicemail or emailed to the address indicated above for follow-up the next business day. The IT Service Center is available to handle questions related to network access, passwords, and the Blackboard learning management system during regular operating hours of Pickler Memorial Library, which includes many late evenings and weekend hours.
We look forward to helping all students have a successful learning experience.
