If you are matriculated at Niagara County Community College and are interested in registering for a SUNY Learning Network course offered by another SUNY campus, please be aware that you are responsible for the following:
Adhering to the NCCC policy regarding transfer credit approval.
Contacting the Financial Aid Office at NCCC regarding satisfactory academic progress and financial aid eligibility.
Informing the NCCC Registration and Records Office about the credits taken at another institution as part of your semester workload.
Acquiring academic approval should an SLN course cause academic overload.
Requesting the other SUNY campus course to send the official transcripts of the grades you earned to NCCC.
If you see something you would like to take, you must check with your academic department and advisor to see if the course will transfer to NCCC. As these are SUNY credits, most may transfer but there are exceptions. Please check with your department and advisor before enrolling in a course. If you choose to enroll in a SUNY Learning Network course, you must register and pay the institution offering the course. Look for the contact information for that campus on the SLN website.
Both online and hybrid classes begin the same day as regular on campus classes and follow the same academic schedule; however we provide you with access to your course one week prior to the first official day of classes. Use this extra time to become familiar with log on procedures, complete the student orientation and learn how to navigate your course & view textbook and other course information.
If you are taking a hybrid (blended) course, check the course calendar in ANGEL to find out when and where your first on campus class meeting will take place.
If you are unsure of when classes begin, check the college academic calendar on the main NCCC college website at http://niagaracc.suny.edu/. Select “academic calendar” from the quick links drop down menu located at the top of the page or view the course entry in banner web. Each course lists the start and end date under the date range heading.
You are required to log in to your online course(s) at least three times per week. While logged into your course, you must post a question, respond in the discussion forums or submit an assignment as proof of attendance. When you make a submission or posting, the professor will know you are "in class" and you will not be dropped for non-participation, which can affect your financial aid. Since the online program is not bound by specific class times, students are responsible for budgeting their time. Make sure you log into your online course(s) the first day of class and participate in beginning course activities, that way your professor will know you have successfully accessed your course.
Current students can request an enrollment verification letter by going to "Banner Web", enter the secure area, and click on "Student & Financial Aid". Verifications are available 24-hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week, 365-days-a-year via this web site. You may also complete an enrollment verification request available in the Registration & Records Office (A-201) or fax a letter of request to (716) 614-6821.
