Adult themes and diverse perspectives are appropriate for college courses, and all students are treated as adults.
College Course Etiquette 101 has only three main points:
Q: Okay, I have to be responsible for myself, got that, now how do my KPC courses fit into my high school schedule?
At your high school, your parents/guardians have access to your school information. At KPC, student records are protected by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act. We are not allowed to discriminate in FERPA policy against students on the basis of age.
Q: What does FERPA mean to you and your parents?
Regardless of your status as a minor, in order for your records, including grades, transcripts, proof of enrollment, or any other information about you to be released to a third party, you are required to:
In addition, when your parent/guardian comes in to request your information, they
must present photo ID to prove that they are the person you have listed on the form.
Q: What if my high school counselor or insurance company wants verification of my enrollment or grades?
You print your own transcripts or verification from your UAA Student account at any computer with a printer. If you don’t know how, come to Student Services and we’ll help you learn how!
Q: I registered into a class, but now I realize it won’t work for me to take the class. What happens if I just don’t show up for class?
You will be charged the tuition and fees whether you attend or not, and you’ll end up with a grade of F, making it hard to be admitted into degree programs or receive financial aid in the future. You have to submit the Drop form in Student Services by the refund deadlines in order to receive any refund!
Independence check: It’s up to you to manage your time, evaluate your high school commitments, and make sure you will be able to attend class at KPC consistently before you register; and to drop the class during the refund period if you decide not to take the class after all.
