What are office hours?
M State is committed to providing equal access to education for all students. Students who have a disability or believe they may have a disability are invited to contact the Accessibility Services office as soon as possible to determine eligibility and/or submit accommodation requests. For questions or to request accommodations, contact Student Development Services or 218.299.6882, or stop by room E112A. For additional information, visit the M State Accessibility Services website.
Any student with a disability that might affect performance in this class is encouraged to contact the instructor at the beginning of the course.
M State has an Academic Performance system in order to provide a means for M State to do everything in its power to help each M State student succeed. This system allows instructors to report when students are not attending, not doing well on assignments and would benefit from tutoring, needs to be connected with resources either on or off campus, or is failing the course. This system is also a way for instructors to reward the positive behavior you are demonstrating in class by submitting a “Wow, Well-done!” If you receive an e-mail or phone call from Student Development Services regarding your performance, this is because I have used the system.
FN, FW, and W Statement If you decide not to complete a course at M State, you must abide by set deadlines: FN: Federal regulations require that a FN (No Show) grade be submitted if a student does not participate in a course before the end of the add drop period. If you do not actively participate by August 31st, you will earn an FN (Education Policies – Failure for Non-Attendance policy). FW: Federal regulations also require that a FW (Failure to Withdraw) grade be submitted and last date of attendance be recorded in the grading system for any student who has “ceased active participation for 14 consecutive calendar days (including holidays) prior to the end of the term” (Education Policies - Failure to Withdraw policy). W: If you decide to withdraw after August 31st, you must do so by the end of the day on November 28th, 2018. If you meet this deadline, you will have a W (which represents Withdraw) on your transcript (unless you have already earned an FW for not participating for 14 calendar days); if you do not meet this deadline, you will earn a grade in the course (Education Policies - Drop/Add/Withdraw policy).
If you face challenges securing food or housing and believe this may affect your performance in the course, you are urged to contact Student Development Services for support. You are also welcome to share this information with me so that I am able to help facilitate the support.
M State is dedicated to assisting veterans and eligible family members in achieving their educational goals. If you are a member of the military and are currently serving, apprise me of regularly scheduled military training and duties that conflict with scheduled course requirements. I will work with you to address issues that arise. For further information on this, refer to MnSCU Procedure 5.12.1 Military Service and Disabled Veterans.
If you are a service member or veteran, please contact an M State Veterans Higher Education Regional Coordinator for information regarding educational benefits and opportunities: Moorhead: D124 Aaron Jensen 218-299-6925 or 218-329-6040 (cell) /firstname.lastname@example.org
