WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE? CREDIT VS NONCREDIT

  • Students registering for the CREDIT section of any course receive homework, grades, and report cards. Upon successful completion of any course, credit students have access to an official transcript with 2 transferrable college credits. After completing 8 total courses, students taking courses for credit are eligible to graduate from Moore with an official Certificate signed by the President of the College. 
  • Students registering for the NONCREDIT section of any course do not receive the academic items or official documentation listed above. Noncredit courses may not be applied toward an official Certificate and cannot retroactively be changed to the credit section of a course.

GRADING POLICY

ACE students enrolled in credit courses are graded based on their in-class performance, demonstrated effort, the completion of daily homework assignments, and final projects. The quality of a student’s achievement is graded A through F. Grading is a matter of judgment and varies from teacher to teacher. Students are rewarded for individual effort, process, and progress, and not necessarily product.

  • A grade in the “A” range is given for high-quality work that reflects an excellent understanding of the issues raised by the assignments.
  • A grade in the “B” range is given for above-average work that reflects significant growth and demonstrated potential.
  • A grade in the “C” range is a reasonable grade for work that reflects adequate skill and potential for growth.
  • A grade in the “D” range is given for work that reflects some ability but does not meet all the requirements.
  • A grade of “F” is given to a student who has failed.
  • A grade of "W" is given to a student who has withdrawn from the course.
  • A grade of "I" is given to students who explicitly request an incomplete from the instructor and communicates a definitive extended deadline by which all coursework must be complete.

Online classes enable the Moore community the convenience of studying anytime from anywhere. Moore's online classes provide students with visually–rich interactive learning. Nervous about learning online?

If all else fails, use your intuition and remember that Google is your friend!
 
Having trouble? Don't panic, our team is here to help! If you are experiencing technical or hardware issues, please submit a ticket and notify your instructor of technical difficulties. If you are experiencing login credential issues, please contact our team at ce@moore.edu.

STUDENT CODE OF CONDUCT

Students are expected to follow general behavior rules of being respectful of each other, the instructor and staff, as well as the College facility.  Inappropriate behavior will not be tolerated and Moore reserves the right to dismiss students from the program. Students dismissed from the program due to code of conduct violations do not receive refunds. “Disruption” or “inappropriateness,” as applied to the educational setting means behavior that interferes with normal educational functions. Examples include, but are not limited to, inability or refusal to comply with direction; excessive demands that impede program staff's ability to address the needs of our larger community; bullying, physical threats, personal insults, bodily harm, bodily modification, consumption of illegal substances, illegal underage activity, and any illegal acts. Failure to adhere to these guidelines could result in disciplinary action and the involvement of security and law enforcement.
