  • South Louisiana Community College seeks to
    cultivate a learning environment in which
    participants develop the qualities and skills

    in a climate that focuses upon intellectual

    cultures of the college community.
  • South Louisiana Community College was created by
    act of the Louisiana Legislature in 1997 as a
    comprehensive, multi-campus, public, two-year
    institution of higher education. The legislation
    prescribes for the College both an academic and a
    vocational component and stipulates that programs
    offered by the College be developed to assure
    the delivery of coordinated and articulated
    educational services in each parish comprising
    the primary service delivery area. The primary
    service delivery area includes the parishes of
    Acadia, Evangeline, Iberia, Lafayette, St.
    Landry, St. Martin, St. Mary, and Vermilion. To
    fulfill its mission, South Louisiana Community
    College provides

    programs that transfer to other two-year schools
    and to baccalaureate programs at four-year
  • Associate degrees in fields of study that prepare
    students for immediate employment

    continuing education for area citizens.
  • The Colleges provision of these programs and
    services is supported by an open-admissions
    policy which provides access to students from
    diverse racial, religious, economic, educational,
    and cultural backgrounds. Within this open
    environment, the College proposes to offer
    educational opportunities that will improve the
    quality of life and meet the lifelong educational
    needs of the citizens it is designed to serve.

    hours or additional information.
  • Attendance
  • Class attendance is regarded as an obligation as
    well as a privilege, and all students are
    expected to attend regularly and punctually all
    classes in which they are enrolled. Faculty
    members shall develop and implement their own
    absence policies. The determination of what
    constitutes excessive absences rest with the
    instructor, but must not be less than the college
    minimum of 10 of the total class meetings.

Online Course
  • Thinking about taking an online class?
  • Read this before you register for the class.
  • Online does not mean checking in whenever you
    feel like it! Students participating in
    electronic learning courses have greater freedom
    of scheduling, but electronic courses require
    more self-discipline than traditional on-campus
    classes. Electronic courses require much more
    time than on-campus courses and are generally
    harder than traditional classes. You can expect
    to spend anywhere from 10-15 hours per week per
    online course. Also, many of the traditional
    courses taught at South Louisiana Community
    College (SLCC) are enhanced by the wide
    utilization of computer and Blackboard
  • Online Courses
  • Students taking online courses will be utilizing
    SLCC's Blackboard E-Learning Platform.
    Instructors delivering courses via the Internet
    will provide their students with an online
    orientation or a face-to-face orientation session
    on SLCC's Campus on how to use the Blackboard
    Platform. Also, the Information Technology
    Department will offer Blackboard orientation
    sessions. Students need to be self-motivated with
    good study and time management skills they need
    to be computer literate, be goal oriented,
    capable of learning on their own through reading,
    research, and assignments, be able to save and
    manage files on their computer, know how to send
    and open e-mail attachments, check e-mail, access
    the Internet, and participate in their online
    course at least 3-5 times per week. Some courses
    require access to certain software programming.
  • First-Time Online Students
  • All first-time online students are REQUIRED to
    attend one of the "General Blackboard Orientation
    Sessions", as well as the MANDATORY face-to-face
    orientation sessions. The dates will be
  • If you are interested in Online courses, register

    maximum enrollment of 20 students.

Student Schedule Changes
  • The college designates a period (drop/add) during
    which a student may make schedule changes.
    Specific dates and procedures are listed in the
    current schedule of classes.
  • Students are responsible for officially dropping
    courses it is not the responsibility of
    instructors to drop students for non attendance.
  • Drop/Add
  • During this period, students may drop/add classes
    only within the first
  • 4 days of a Spring or Fall Semester and the
    first 2 days of a summer semester.
  • NOTE Dropping a course after the drop/add
    period will not reduce the students financial
    obligation to the college and may affect
    eligibility for continued financial aid.
  • Dropping with a grade of W or Resignation
  • As of the 5th day of a Fall/Spring Semester and
    the 3rd day of a summer semester, a student may
    continue to drop one or more classes or drop all
    classes (resignation) and will receive a grade of
    a W. Students must initiate the process by
    meeting with their advisor and submitting the
    appropriate form to the Registrars office in
    accordance with dates printed in the schedule of
    classes. See last day to drop with a grade of

    grades in those courses.

    obligations of the institution, primarily in the
    areas of release of the records and the access
    provided to these records. Any educational
    institution that receives funds under any program

    student's education record.
  • This information is protected under FERPA and
    parents may not have access unless the student
    has provided written authorization that
    specifically identifies what information may be
    released to the parent(s).
  • Access to student records
  • At the postsecondary level, parents have no
    inherent rights to access or inspect their son or
    daughter's education records.

    if they have been given a written release by the
    student or in compliance with a subpoena.
