Online "Petition for Remote Learning" | Spring 2021

 

By submitting this petition, you are requesting to complete all Spring 2021 JCU coursework remotely. 

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.

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 Spring 2021 classes asynchronously should contact the Dean of Academic Affairs, Mary Merva (mmerva@johncabot.edu), who will work with them on their schedule to minimize the need for asynchronous courses. 

You may submit this petition at any point before or during the Spring 2021 semester. 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.

You will need to inform the Registrar’s Office (registrar@johncabot.edu).

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 Spring 2021 classes asynchronously petition the Dean of Academic Affairs, Mary Merva (mmerva@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@johhncabot.edu. Please remember that 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.
