Testing can also be arranged at remote locations. For information or to schedule your test, contact our testing center.

Transitional classes are designed for your success. If your test scores place you below college-level math and English classes, you will be required to take additional transitional classes. These classes will not count toward graduation nor will they transfer to another institution. Transitional classes are not currently available online.

Student Orientation - Glossary of Terms

As a new student, you will hear a number of words and phrases you may not know. Below are some of terms that will help you throughout college.

Course Co-Requisite

A course requirement that must be in conjunction with another specific course. For example, a biology lecture class must be taken in the same term as a biology lab. You must be enrolled in both the biology lecture and lab class.

Course Pre-Requisite

A course that must be taken before enrollment in another course. The first course is then considered a pre-requisite. For example, English 1010 is a pre-requisite for English 1020.

Degree Audit

A degree audit report details curriculum requirements, and identifies which requirements you have satisfactorily completed and which requirements are still needed for graduation. You can complete your own degree audits through Degree Works beginning in August of 2012.

Distance Learning

Distance learning is defined as a formal education process in which the majority of the instruction occurs when you and your instructor are not in the same place. These types of classes include Interactive TV (ITV), Online (OLIN), and Telecourse (TLCR).

Directed Study

Directed study courses are designed to provide opportunities for the college to offer classes based on the interest of you and your instructor.

Dropping a Class

To formally withdraw from a class, you must drop the class by the appropriate date, otherwise you will receive the grade you earn. The first week of classes, you can drop the class through My Northeast. After the first week of classes, you are able to drop the class at the Norfolk campus, the Extended Campuses, or via fax. Please refer to your Student Handbook for these deadlines. Short-term classes are available throughout the semester and their drop dates vary.

Elective

There are certain courses you are required to take for graduation. However, you will also choose or "elect" to take other courses. These courses, which also apply toward graduation, are called "electives". Don't feel you have to limit your course selection to your program. Have fun and take other classes you are interested in.

Grade Point Average (GPA)

Grade Point Average is a function of the grading system used to determine academic status. Grade points are allocated for each letter grade earned in each class:

A+...........4.0 points
A.............4.0 points
B+...........3.5 points
B.............3.0 points
C+...........2.5 points
C.............2.0 points
D+...........1.5 points
D.............1.0 point
F..............0.0 points

To calculate your GPA, multiply the semester hours of credit for each course by the grade points to determine total number of quality points and then divide the sum of quality points by the total number of credits.

Hybrid Courses

Hybrid courses are courses that combine traditional face-to-face instruction and online technology.

Incomplete

A temporary grade of an "I" may be issued when a student has completed most of the course requirements but is unable to complete the remainder due to circumstances clearly beyond his/her control. It is your responsibility to request an incomplete form from the instructor. Arrangements will then be made for completion of the course objectives. See the Student Handbook for full details.

Interactive Television

Interactive Television (ITV) courses provide instruction among multiple classroom sites. The live ITV classroom allows an instructor to see and hear the students via monitor at the origin site. You will be able to see and hear the instructor at your site.

My Northeast

On-line services and access to student information.

Primary/Academic Advisor

Your primary advisor is assigned to you based on your program of study and is an expert in the field. We strongly encourage you to meet with this person regularly.

Program of Study

This is the academic area you have chosen to study in-depth.

Registration

A student must sign up or register for classes and pay tuition and fees by the first day of each semester. Dates for registration are listed on our academic calendar and in our student handbook.

Semester/Term

This is how the college divides up the academic year. Northeast Community College operates on a semester schedule. Our fall term generally begins in August and our spring term generally begins in January. We also have two short summer terms (Summer A and Summer B, also referred to as Summer Session I and II).

Short-term Courses

These courses are customized training for specific topics.

Telecourse

Telecourses consist of an integrated course of study delivered through a series of DVDs.

Transcript

An official copy of a student's complete academic record is a transcript. This transcript will list all courses, grades, and credits.

Transferring Credits

Students who attend an accredited college (two-year or four-year) usually find that their credits will transfer to another college. It is, however, up to the student to initiate the process and up to the receiving school to decide whether or not they will accept credits from another college. When credits are accepted at Northeast from another institution the individual courses that transferred will show on your Northeast transcript under the transfer institution’s name. The grades will have a "T" in front of the grade to designate the transfer grade. If a course equivalent has been accepted at Northeast Community College that will be noted after the course. The course will be listed with the Northeast ALPH and numeric information. If you are transferring after Northeast Community College, you will be required by most institutions to get a transcript from each institution even though coursework may be recorded on your Northeast transcript.

Tuition and Fees

Tuition is the amount that students must pay for academic instruction per credit hour. Fees include Student Support, Facilities, and Technology.

Withdrawal

The act of officially leaving or withdrawing from Northeast. Paperwork must be completed through the Registrar's office or a student will receive F's for coursework not completed.
