What is the homework associated with continuing education credit?
You will submit a reflection paper for each class. Unless otherwise stated by the session's facilitator, a template in Microsoft Word is used to walk the student through the reflection process.
If I do not submit my homework assignment within the 7 day allotment, may I turn it in late?
No. MNU is required to function within the normal range of practices in higher education. Post-dating university credit is not one of those practices. In order to maintain academic integrity and ensure the quality of your experiences with MNU and its continuing education partners, it is necessary that we establish and uphold policies published. Thank you for your support. Please contact the continuing education office with questions/concerns.
How do I submit my reflection paper/homework?
When you are ready to submit a reflection paper, you will send that document as an attachment to email@example.com. When MNU receives this paper, you will receive an automated message indicating such. Please be sure MNU messages aren't going to your SPAM folder or that MNU is not blocked by your email provider. Issues related to homework submission should be sent to Glenna Murray, firstname.lastname@example.org.
When do I get my grade for a course or workshop?
After homework has been submitted to MNU via email, MNU then has 2 weeks to grade your paper and post the grade. During the summer months, MNU has 3 weeks to process grades due to the high volume of classes. When your grade has been posted, you will receive word via email. If you have trouble with your grade posting, please contact Glenna Murray, email@example.com.
When and how do I get my transcript?
Transcripts are requested through the Registrar's Office and our Transcript Request Form. No one can request your transcripts but you. Our offices are not able to submit your forms to the registrar on your behalf. All must be processed by you, the student. Do not submit your request until after three weeks have passed from the date of the session. If you do, you will receive a transcript of any work PRIOR to the newest session you attended.
On average, the registrar needs 5 business days to process a transcript request. Please take this time into account when taking classes. If you need credit by a given date due to an expiring license, you'll want to take a class early enough to ensure the paperwork can be processed in time.
