Course Length & Course Fee explanations
Every On Demand Webinar course has a start date, end date, and a termination date. This is known as the Q-Term for the course. The first day of an On Demand Webinar course is considered the start date. An On Demand Webinar Course meets a total of 4 weeks; course end date is 6 weeks from the start date.
At the end of any allowable extension period, the course termination date is reached for all courses. A final course grade will be assigned based on the status of all assignments on the course termination date. For formal research courses, the grade is assigned at the end of the last Doctoral Research Extension. A student’s Class Schedule identifies the specific dates for each course.
Students not completing their course by the original course end date have the option to request a course extension. Trinity must receive the request for an extension within the allowable extension period for the course. The request may be made via email at [email protected], or by calling Trinity at 812.602.3320. All extension fees must be paid up and account must be current with all payments before
any extensions will be granted.
2-4 Week Extension: A 2-4 Week Extension will be provided to complete a course beginning the first calendar day after the original course end date. A 2-4 Week Extension Fee is charged per course and payable at the time of the 2-4 Week Extension request.
6-Month Extension: For aQ-Term course, a6-Month Extension will provide an additional six months from the original end date of the Q-Term course.. A maximum of two 6-Month Extensions are allowed.* A 6-Month Extension Fee is charged per course and payable with the 6-Month Extension request and payable at the time of the 2-4 Week Extension request.
Students who request to have extensions for courses after their Enrollment Agreement has expired will be placed into the latest version of the course if they are not already in it, or they will be placed into a current equivalent course if that particular course needing an extension is no longer offered at Trinity (see Course Extension Policies in the Student Handbook).
* Masters/Doctoral Research Extension: A Masters/Doctoral Research Extension will provide the student with six (6) additional months to complete a formal research course beginning the first calendar day after the original course end date.
*A Masters/Doctoral Research Extension Fee is charged and payable with the Masters/Doctoral Research Extension request. Students are eligible for Masters/Doctoral Research Extensions as needed for courses such as Dissertation, Capstone Research Project, and Major Writing Project.
Course Addendum Fee
If a student elects to drop an On Demand Webinar Course, or exchange one On Demand Webinar course for another at any point within the Y-Term or Q-Term in which they were previously enrolled, an Addendum is prepared. A Course Addendum Fee is charged per Addendum. Note:A Course Addendum Fee is charged per Addendum and must be paid up front prior to processing the Addendum. The student’s account must be
current with their payments before any Addendum is processed.
The last day to exchange a course is: 1) on or before the start date of an On Demand Webinar course, or 2) on or before the end date of the Enrollment Agreement, whichever comes first. The last day to add a course to an existing Enrollment Agreement is on or before the end date of the Enrollment Agreement.
Major Core Course Substitution Fee
Students who exchange a major core course in their degree program for another course within the same Area of Study that is not part of the degree program will incur a Major Core Course Substitution Fee. This fee does not apply to designated Elective Course options within a degree program. Nor does this fee apply in conjunction with a
Degree/Program Change Fee. Note:A Major Core Course Substitution Fee is charged and must be paid up front prior to processing the course exchange/substitution. The student’s account must be current with their payments before any course exchange/substitution is processed.
Degree Program Change Fee
When students change from one degree to another, a new Enrollment Agreement is required in addition to application of the Degree Change Fee (includes Course Exchange/Program Change Fees). Any unused tuition is credited to the new Enrollment Agreement. Any owed tuition is charged at current tuition cost. Financial assistance is reviewed and applied as applicable. A change from a single degree to a combined degree program, or vice versa, such as B.A. to a Combined B.A. and M.A. Degree, results in a Degree Change Fee. A change of major or focus within a degree is a program change, not a degree change. A program change requires only an Addendum to the Enrollment Agreement and appropriate application of the Program Change Fee (includes Course Exchange Fee). Note: A Degree Program Change Fee is charged and must be paid up front prior to processing the degree program change. The student’s account must be current with their payments before any degree program change is processed.
