About Online Courses

Online courses are completed at a time, place, and  pace that is convenient for the student; there are no requirements to attend on-campus classes. Please note online courses may require more reading and writing than a similar course offered on campus.

Students should consider a number of factors when deciding if online courses are right for them. Distance learners tend to be highly self-motivated and independent students who possess excellent time management skills.

Students interested in online learning should consider the following parameters when registering for online coursework:

  • Online courses have the same class requirements, “meeting time” requirements, deadlines, and learning outcomes as on-campus classes.
  • Online learning requires a weekly time commitment.
  • Online courses require students to use a Quincy College e-mail address, available to all registered students.

Online Student Grievance Procedure (Policy 6.14A)

At Quincy College, we attempt to resolve student complaints within our academic and administrative departments. Online and distance education students who have a grievance or complaint related to online programs may submit a written grievance or complaint to onlineprograms@quincycollege.edu.

The complaint will be forwarded to the appropriate academic or administrative department and an email response will be sent to the student informing that the grievance or complaint was received and further inform that the issue is being reviewed. Dependent upon the nature of the grievance or complaint, Quincy College will attempt to resolve the issue quickly. In the event that the student is not satisfied with the outcome of the Quincy College’s complaint resolution process, online students may still be able to appeal the outcome to other governmental agencies. Quincy College is required to notify online students who are Massachusetts residents that they may utilize the Massachusetts Department of Higher Education’s Consumer Complaint Form: http://www.mass.edu/forstufam/complaints/complaints.asp.

The DHE in its capacity as the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA) portal entity for Massachusetts, also reviews and evaluates student complaints regarding distance learning programs offered by Massachusetts-based institutions that are members of SARA. Online students who live in SARA member states outside of Massachusetts and take courses at Quincy College 100% online must first attempt to resolve their grievance or complaint using Quincy College’s internal complaint process as specified in Policy 6.14 Student Grievance Procedure (page 171) contained in the Quincy College Policy Manual. The QC Policy Manual can be located at https://quincycollege.edu/content/uploads/QCPolicyManual.pdf.

Upon exhausting Quincy College’s internal process, online students who live in another state and take courses at Quincy College 100% online may submit a SARA Complaint to the Massachusetts DHE available at http://www.mass.edu/forstufam/complaints/complaints.asp. Please note that complaints about student grades and student conduct violations are expressly excluded from the SARA complaint process. For information about the DHE’s SARA complaint process, please visit the DHE website and its Complaint Policy and Process.
