Important Semester Reminders

Welcome to the 2014 FALL semester. Regardless of whether you are enrolled in on-campus, online, or off-campus classes, please review the following reminders and important information to ensure you are aware of the resources and services available to you.

Classes Begin

On-campus classes started Monday, August 18, while online classes begin Tuesday, September 2. Please review your class schedule to ensure you are registered and attending the correct courses. Your class schedule, which is available in MyCleveland, provides the start dates for each course.

Attendance

Instructors are required to report attendance during the first and second week of the semester. Instructors will drop students who have not attended. Students enrolled in online courses must complete a graded assignment by the 10% point of the course to avoid the possibility of being dropped for non attendance. For more information, contact your instructor.

Ellucian Go App

Did you know that CCC has a mobile app? Ellucian Go lets you register for classes, check your grades, connect to CCC’s social media, and even check the weather. Download Ellucian GO for free today and select Cleveland Community College from the alphabetical list of institutions.

cccConnect

cccConnect is your connection to the online tools that Cleveland Community College provides to its students, faculty, and staff. This page is designed to help you find what you need to use these tools successfully.

If you are new to the online environment and need assistance with logging into Blackboard and MyCleveland, setting up your student email account, and basic navigational skills, plan to attend one of the Workshops.

Important Dates

Refer to the Fall 2014 Important Dates calendar for term and withdrawal dates. There are no refunds for course withdrawals, and courses remain on the transcript with a grade of W. A 100% refund will only be made before the start of the term. Also, students can access the Fall 2014 Registration Calendar for 2nd session registration dates.

Application for Graduation Dates and Deadline

The last day to apply for graduation is October 15, 2014. Contact your advisor to determine if you meet all requirements. Check your MyCleveland account to determine your assigned advisor. Graduation information and applications are available online and in Student Services.

Financial Aid Refunds

If you are a financial aid recipient, refunds will be mailed during the fifth week of the semester. Financial aid will not be applied to your account for non-attendance. Students enrolled in late start courses will not receive payment for those courses until after the census date of the course. Please note, if your late start course does not update your enrollment status, you will not receive additional funds. Check online for the disbursement schedule.

Students who do not wish for any or all of the above information be released to outside agencies must notify Student Services in writing at the time of registration.

Emergency Notification

cccAlert is a service offered by CCC which communicates in multiple ways with students, faculty and staff, as well as visitors, local residents, parents, and the news media. The College's goal is to provide a timely notification of a confirmed emergency situation and to provide instructions for taking action, if needed. In an emergency, the College's priority is the safety of the campus. For more information, including how to sign up, please access cccAlert online.
