Attendance is directly related to student success in each course of study. Canadian Independent College believes that students must attend class if they are to be well prepared for University and beyond.
Students are expected to attend all classes. Internet based courses are no different from traditional classroom courses in this regard. Internet based students are subject to the same attendance policy and procedures as traditional students. Attendance in online courses is defined as active participation in the course as described in the individual course syllabus and Ontario Ministry of Education Course Expectations. Internet based courses will, at a minimum, have weekly assignments to record student participation, which can be documented by any or all of the following methods:
When a student misses a class, s/he will be expected to make up the time missed. Teachers and the student will consult about how to make up the time and how to assess the skills and knowledge that would have been missed by the student.
The Ministry of Education mandates that an academic credit includes 110 hours of classroom instruction. Students who miss eight or more classes in a course of study may not be able to attain a credit in the course of study. The Administrative Team will meet in order to review the circumstances related to the student and the reasons for absence.
CIC is a very special school that provides a rich, nurturing and caring environment that has brought out the best in me and allowed me to truly thrive. My university admission was a breeze.
The small class size, the high staff-to-student ratio, the respectful atmosphere, and above all, the unwavering dedication was what makes CIC special.
Ample access to technology, a high teacher to student ratio, and caring engaged teachers helped me to gain admission to veterinary school after CIC.
Since my very first day at CIC, I felt welcomed, accepted, and loved. Every morning I see the smiling teachers and staff.
What I like best about CIC is most definitely the education that I received.
High academics have always been important to me and it didn’t take long to realize that this school was right fit for me.
You want to get into a great university come study at CIC, the entire admission process is handled by the school.
I came to Canada not knowing anybody, the school and residence staff made me feel at home right away. My university placement was surprisingly easy.
My overall experience at CIC was fantastic, especially all the new life long friends I made. I got offers to all the universities I applied to.
The teaching staff were very helpful and made my learning experience fun. I can get lost in public school easily, not at CIC with small class size and attention to school needs.
My teachers at CIC did a great job, not only presenting the material, but also teaching it. Got my university offers early spring.
Arriving at CIC for the first time you feel at home not because of all the cold snow, but because of the caring and warm environment.
I got early university admission in March, thanks to the wonderful job of the guidance office
Thanks to the school, my university admission was the easiest thing I ever went through in high school.
Getting all my early universities offers was a great relief, couldn’t have done it without everyone at CIC.
I love the school because I have many nice teachers and a principal who helped me get into my dream university.
Because of my older brother’s wonderful experience at CIC Waterloo my parents sent me to CIC in grade 10. CIC was one of the best experiences in my life. I got into my dream program at McGill University.
