How are online classes delivered?
All class work is completed through Canvas, a web-based learning management system (LMS) the college refers to as SFCC Online. Instructors use various tools within SFCC Online such as discussion boards, online assignments, course emails, quizzes, and a variety of academic resources to promote learning and understanding of the course.
What if I have already taken a placement test (ACT, SAT, ASSET, etc.) within the last five years but have lost my scores?
You have two options:
- Retake a placement test and have the scores sent to SFCC Admissions and Outreach..
- Contact the testing company and request that your scores be sent to the college.
How many courses can I take at a time?
It depends on your rank. E3s can take one class at a time; E4s and above may take two classes at a time.
How do I take tests in an online class?
Most online instructors administer tests through SFCC Online. Any special instructions regarding testing usually are addressed in the instructor’s syllabus or course information. For specific testing information, ask your online instructor.
Do I need a proctor for quizzes or exams?
Most quizzes or exams will be submitted online. Math courses might require a proctor. The instructor will provide guidelines for obtaining a proctor if one is required.
What should I do if I learn that I am going to miss an assignment deadline because of military deployment or responsibilities?
If possible, contact your instructor prior to missing the deadline. Let your instructor know how long you will be unavailable and how you plan to make up the assignment(s). If you have to be gone for an extended time, the instructor can arrange for you to receive an incomplete grade and finish the course at a later date.
How do I drop a class?
You may drop classes in mySTAR by going to the Registration Tools channel on the Student tab and clicking on the Add or Drop Classes. To drop a class, use the options available in the Action pull-down list. Classes cannot be dropped after the sixth week of eight-week classes. We recommend you email the instructor of any classes dropped. You may drop all but one class through mySTAR.
