Guided Study Student Handbook—Introduction H-1 Introduction The “Student Handbook for Guided Study Courses” contains the information you need to get organized and to stay on track as you proceed through each Guided Study course. It also contains essential guidelines for completing various administrative tasks for which you are responsible. These tasks— acquiring your course materials, properly submitting assignments, arranging for examinations, and keeping the College informed of status changes—all ensure that you will get the most out of your courses and receive the proper credit. Finally, the handbook offers advice to help you meet the academic standards established by the College, and it emphasizes the importance of pursuing your education with honesty and integrity. The information provided here needs your careful attention. Before you do anything else, please read the handbook carefully. Getting Started All courses involve reading and writing. Many also require you to listen to or view course-related DVDs and CDs and be responsible for their content. Still others require you to work with materials online, on computer disk, or on CD-ROM or DVD. Before you begin the course or courses for which you have registered: Check that you have all of your course materials conveniently near your workstation. (See the Course Materials section of the “Student Handbook for Guided Study Courses.”) Take note of your mentor’s contact information. This is available in the Mentor Information area of the Guided Study course Web site, which is on http://myedison.tesc.edu/ . You may also receive this information from your mentor. Refer to the Course Calendar or assignment schedule in the “Course Syllabus,” and fill in the dates by which assignments should be submitted. To find the dates, refer to the Table of Week-by-Week Dates in the “General Course Instructions for Guided Study Courses.”
