If I do not submit my homework assignment within the 7 day allotment, may I turn it in late?
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. When MNU receives this paper, you will receive an automated message indicating it was received. 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, email@example.com.

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, firstname.lastname@example.org.
When and how do I get my transcript?
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.
Costs, Fee and Payment Information
What are the guidelines for earning college credit?
As of August 2012, the Higher Learning Commission, (HLC) determined 1 college credit requires 15 hours of seat time.
Usually workshops and training will earn .5 credit for a daylong session (5.5 hours of seat time and a two-hour reflection assignment, totaling 7.5 hours). Traditional college-level course work will earn a pre-determined number of credit hours. This is identified by the institution offering the course at the time of enrollment.
What is the price for continuing education credit?
This depends on the organization with whom you've contracted for the workshop, class, training, etc. Contact the organization to determine costs.

How do I pay for my credit?
Visa, Mastercard, AMEX and Discover debit and credit cards are accepted for payment when you register.
Payment is given upon registration through a secure online provider called CashNet. Once payment is submitted, a receipt is sent via email from CashNet through email@example.com. Issues related to payment should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have logged into the MNU portal and see a "cashier hold" when trying to access your grades or account information, this means your payment hasn't been posted to your student account. It takes no more than 2 weeks to post a payment to a client's account after the client has registered.
How do I request a refund?
A continuing education client may request a refund before the continuing education course grade is posted. An administrative fee of $15 will be deducted from the refund. To request a refund, please send the following information via email to email@example.com with the following information:
- Client name and address
- Name of continuing education course, including course number (CRN)
