Official Statement Relative To Class Attendance And Mid-semester Examinations

October 07, 2015

MEMORANDUM

TO: VOORHEES COLLEGE STUDENTS

FROM: OFFICE OF THE INTERIM VICE PRESIDENT FOR ACADEMIC AND STUDENT AFFAIRS

RE: OFFICIAL STATEMENT RELATIVE TO CLASS ATTENDANCE AND MID-SEMESTER EXAMINATIONS

DATE: OCTOBER 6, 2015


Dear Students,

The Interim Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs is aware of the damage and constraints that have resulted from the recent Floods.  More specifically, I am aware that some students left the campus last week and have not been able to return to resume classes and to take their mid-semester examinations because of road blocks and other factors of the hurricane.

This is an official communique to assure you that if you have not been able to return to classes and take mid-semester examinations because of the fallout from the floods, you will not be penalized with regard to absenteeism and mid-semester examinations. However, if you know that you are able to return to campus by Friday of this week, I advise you to do so. Upon your return, contact your professors and to ask them for a date and time you may take your mid-semester examinations. 

Provided that  road conditions are publicized as being impassable in your particular area so that you will not be able to return to campus until next week,  you will be excused from classes. As soon as it is evident that the roads in your area are accessible, you should exercise responsibility in returning to the campus to resume your studies and to complete assignments as necessary.

If you should have questions, you may contact me by return email (rochelle@voorhees.edu) and by telephone at 803-780-1179 or 803-780-1029.

Sincerely,

Lugenia Rochelle
Interim Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs
