-APSU Policy 2:001
|Course Scheduling||The academic department chair, in communication with the college dean, will coordinate
with the Office of Distance Education to develop the schedule of courses offered through
TN eCampus and the assignment of APSU faculty.
TBR in Reference to
|The Director of Distance Education is the primary point of contact between the University
and TN eCampus. However, designated individuals, such as the academic department chair
or director at the program level, may have responsibility for communicating directly
with TN eCampus in order for the university to participate effectively in TN eCampus.
|Residency Requirements||APSU is responsible for ensuring that students meet residency requirements prior to
completing a degree program. Residency requirements must at a minimum meet APSU requirements
and SACSCOC Principles of Accreditation, in which at least 25 percent of the credit hours required for the undergraduate
degree, or at least one-third of the credit hours required for the graduate or post-baccalaureate
professional degree, are earned through instruction offered by the institution awarding
the degree. Student residency checks are performed by APSU Office of Distance Education
and Office of the Registrar for each APSU student registering for a TN eCampus course,
following the procedures established by the Office of the Registrar. Ultimately the
Registrar’s office is responsible for monitoring residency.
|Student Fees||APSU will notify students at the time of registration or enrollment of any projected
additional student charges for TN eCampus courses.
|Evaluation of the Policy||The APSU TN eCampus/University Collaborative Oversight Committee will annually evaluate this policy. This committee will evaluate the policy in the context of the institution’s mission and goals, and evaluate the effectiveness of policy implementation and enforcement, in order to continuously improve related procedures and services.|
