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#, students may go online at http://my.commnet.edu to view grades, print an unofficial transcript, or request an official eTranscript. They may also complete the transcript request form.

Credit for MAT* 138: Intermediate Algebra: A Modeling Approach requires that the student achieve a grade of B- or better for the course and a score of 35 or higher on the College Level Mathematics portion of the Accuplacer test, a score of 22 or higher on the ACT Math Test, or a score of 570 or better on the mathematics portion of the SAT. Please note: SAT tests taken before March 1, 2016 require a math score of 530 or better to satisfy the credit requirement. Test scores must be submitted by the high school to the college by July 1 after the course is completed. Grading for Accuplacer scores may be subject to change during the year based on anticipated changes in the test structure by the College Board.

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

Students enrolled in College Career Pathways (CCP) courses through Manchester Community College have the option of withdrawing from a CCP course if they believe they will not be successful in the course. To withdraw, students must complete a withdrawal form, available in the guidance office. If a student withdraws by April 20, 2018 (form is due at MCC by April 24, 2018), the course will not appear on the college transcript.  Students may withdraw until the last day of classes.  If a student withdraws in the period between April 20, 2018 and the last day of classes, the course is recorded on the college transcript with an assigned grade of “W”. Students may withdraw from the CCP program and remain in the class for high school credit depending on school district policy.  All students who do not withdraw by the last day of class will receive the grade assigned to them by the teacher and that grade will appear on the college transcript. Students who receive a grade for MAT* 138 but do not score well enough on the assessment test to receive college credit will have these courses deleted from their transcript.

Transcripts are permanent records and cannot be altered.  Students are advised that a grade of “W” on a college transcript can negatively impact eligibility for financial aid.
