GSC’s academic year is based on a semester system. Courses are offered Monday through Friday, mainly during daytime hours. Holidays are observed on Labor Day, Thanksgiving and the Friday following, Good Friday, Memorial Day, Martin Luther King Day and Independence Day. Christmas and Easter holidays typically occur during scheduled semester breaks.
The credit hour is based on the number of class hours per week. One credit requires one hour (fifty minutes) of class time per week for a 15 week semester, or its equivalency. Processes are in place to verify credit hour equivalency between face-to-face and other course delivery formats. One credit hour is assigned for three hours of laboratory and clinical experience. The number of credit hours for each course is published in the syllabi and in the curriculum plan and course descriptions section of the catalog.
It is the intent of Good Samaritan College of Nursing and Health Science to treat its students in a fair and equitable manner. With appropriate, consistent, and considerate handling, problems can and should be resolved without undertaking a formal grievance. However, a formal grievance procedure --detailed in the Student Handbook--may be used to resolve problems.
