Online "Petition for Remote Learning"

 

By submitting this petition, you are requesting to complete Fall 2021 JCU coursework remotely. You will not be attending classes physically as you have identified serious health or travel issues that are impacted by COVID-19 restrictions that prevent you from being on campus. 

This means that you will not be attending classes physically on-campus, but rather will participate by using our online learning platform, Moodle, and by joining the class by MS Teams video calls (or any other software your professor may use, such as Zoom).

As a remote student you will be expected to follow your professors' attendance policies. This means that you will generally be expected to join your classes online on their scheduled days and times.

In the Fall 2021 semester, we expect all students to attend classes on campus. While in the past year we have been very lenient on petitions for remote, given the on-going vaccination campaign, we will be requiring students indicate more stringently why they may not be able to attend classes on campus. 

Exceptions may be made in extraordinary circumstances for students who need a class to graduate on time and whose synchronous participation could only take place between midnight and 6:00 a.m. in their local time zone. Students seeking to take Fall 2021 classes asynchronously should contact the Dean of Academic Affairs, Carlos Dews (cdews@johncabot.edu), who will work with them on their schedule to minimize the need for asynchronous courses. 

This petition must be submitted by the end of the first day of class for Fall 2021 semester. You may submit this petition at any point before or during Fall 2021. Similarly, should you wish to join classes on campus you will have the option to request an annulment of your petition for remote learning. 

 

Allow at least three business days for processing times. You will then receive an email from the Dean of Academic Affairs with the formal approval of your petition. You may be contacted prior to obtaining the approval should further information and/or documentation be necessary to make a decision.

Yes, students are requested to submit the petition by the first day of classes for Fall 2021 semester. Please check the Academic Calendar . Exceptions may be made in extraordinary circumstances. Students are expected to email the Dean of Academic Affairs, Carlos Dews, at cdews@johncabot.edu.

You will need to complete the Petition to Return to in-presence Learning at the bottom of this page.

All remote learning students are expected to attend classes synchronously and should plan their schedules accordingly. Exceptions may be made in extraordinary circumstances for students who need a class to graduate on time, and whose synchronous participation could only take place between midnight and 6am in their local time zone. Students seeking to take Fall 2021 classes asynchronously petition the Dean of Academic Affairs, Carlos Dews (cdews@johncabot.edu).

Yes, study abroad students may petition for remote learning as well. Depending on your time zone, the Dean of Academic Affairs might advise you to re-arrange your schedule so that you may be able to join our classes remotely.

If you are not in possession of a European passport, you must contact our Immigration Services Office before entering or leaving Italy at ImmigrationServices@johncabot.edu. Please remember that John Cabot University cannot sponsor your Permit to Stay request or renewal while you are on remote learning.

No, there is no need to submit the petition should you need to begin your classes online due to quarantine or late arrivals. Students in this situation should work together with the Dean of Students Office (deanofstudents@johncabot.edu).

Students taking classes remotely cannot live in JCU Housing. If you have already applied for housing, the application will be automatically canceled once your Remote learning petition is approved. JCU Housing is reserved only for students attending their classes in person. Exceptions may be made in extraordinary circumstances. Students are requested to email Housing Office at housing@johncabot.edu.
