Important Policies

Sophomores, juniors and seniors are eligible to become College Career Pathways (CCP) students and to receive up to 18 CCP credits if they follow the procedures of the program. Students must complete a Concurrent Enrollment HS application on line within the designated time period. Application procedures and time periods are available from the College Career Pathways Coordinator at each high school.

Students must appear on a course roster for an articulated course. Students can only receive credits for courses listed on their school’s MCC consortium concurrent enrollment agreement.

Students do not automatically receive their grades once their courses are completed. By using their Banner ID number, students may go to myCommNet to view grades, print an unofficial transcript, or request an official eTranscript. They may also complete the transcript request form.

If a student believes that there has been an error or omission in their CCP grade record, they must notify the college Registrar no later than the September 1 after the completion of the course in order to apply for corrections.

If a student has a Manchester Community College CCP Admissions application on file and applies for corrections within this time period, the college will consider changes/additions to the student’s record if accompanied by a high school transcript documenting the student’s achievement in the articulated course, and a letter from the College Career Pathways Coordinator or a guidance counselor at the high school verifying the student’s status as a CCP student.

If at any time a CCP student requests a correction to their records and it can be determined by the presence of a Manchester Community College CCP Admissions application and a roster on file at MCC from the high school documenting the award of a grade to that student, the record will be immediately corrected.


FERPA

College Career Pathways students are included in the college’s Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) policy. Under the FERPA policy, students have a right to expect that information in their education records will be kept confidential and will be disclosed only with their permission or under provisions of the law. For purposes of FERPA, the college considers all students, regardless of their age, independent. Educational records, including grades and course enrollment information, will not be provided to parents without the prior written consent of the student.


Withdrawal Policy

Please note:  Students will not be required to submit a withdrawal form to withdraw from a CCP course during the 2020-2021 academic year. Instead, students will be required to notify their high school teacher of their intention to withdraw, and the high school will then strike the student’s name from the grade report. Students who withdraw from a CCP course will be withdrawn without penalty, which means the course will not appear on their MCC transcript.


Policy for College Career Pathways Students with an IEP or 504

Students with disabilities have a right to access any program as long as they meet the same eligibility requirements and prerequisites for enrollment.

  • Students must meet the same academic criteria as those students enrolled in credit-bearing college courses. The same academic expectations will apply to students with disabilities.
  • Colleges will not provide modifications to change the course content or performance expectations that would substantially alter the essential elements of the course.
  • It is important to remember that the IEP does not continue to college or the workplace.  Some accommodations provided at the high school may also be appropriate at the college level.  However, at the high school there may be supports and services provided that go beyond reasonable accommodation and would NOT be appropriate at the college level.
  • Students will be expected to self-advocate for accommodations and supports necessary in completing college level work.
  • The college reserves the right to determine the nature and extent of appropriate individual adjustments.
