Beginning with the Spring 2008 Semester, it is up to each instructor whether to assign a first night homework assignment. Instructors who assign homework prior to the first class meeting will inform students of this via email and/or on Blackboard. Therefore, it is imperative that your email address is correctly listed in the college's database. If you have recently changed your email address, please call our office to make the change in our system. Blackboard should be activated for students a few days before classes begin.

will refund tuition according to the refund schedule posted each semester in the Class Schedule catalog. In order to qualify for a refund or reversal of charges you must drop or withdraw from class officially by notifying your advisor and submitting the proper form by the dates listed above. (See Important Dates.) No drop/withdrawal is official unless it is approved by your advisor and signed by you. Notifying an instructor or failing to attend class does not constitute an official drop or withdrawal from a course nor does it eliminate the student's financial responsibility for course payment.
Payments can be made at our
. Please keep in mind payment must be made before the first of the month so it can post in time. We accept checks, MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and cash.
All exams must be taken midterm week, and students should take the midterm in class as scheduled. The only exceptions are students who are taking the class BlendEd or Online from another
(ex. Green Bay or
) or those who have two classes on the same night. Students who have two classes on the same night should attempt to complete both tests on the scheduled night; however, if this is not possible, he/she may have the test proctored by a suitable proctor.
Suitable proctors include library staff, teachers from public or private schools, members of the clergy, staff in training departments, or perhaps supervisors at work. Friends, relatives and co-workers are not considered suitable proctors.
We are aware that the midterm proctoring procedure can be somewhat inconvenient; however, the verification of student work adds validity to the program, resulting in a college degree which holds more value in both the work and academic communities.
If you have any questions about proctoring, please contact either your instructor or the
office before you take the exam.
If you need to have your midterm proctored:
- Contact your instructor and let him/her know you need to set up a proctor. Your instructor will e-mail you the Preliminary Proctor Form.
- Complete and return the Preliminary Proctor Form to your instructor.
- The week before midterms, your instructor will e-mail the midterm exam and appropriate forms to your proctor.
- Contact your proctor to schedule a time to take the test.
- At the Chippewa Valley Center we will hold four proctoring sessions.
- Session 1: February 19, 5:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
- Session 2: February 20, 10:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.

If you need to use a computer, let them know when you schedule your appointment. Make sure they have the computer program you need (such as Excel, Word, etc.)
