General Policies

Academic Year

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.

Credit Hour

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.

Grievance

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.

General Administration Policy

The College reserves the right to change--without notice--rules, policies, tuition and fees, curricula, courses or other administrative or educational policies. Contact the College at (513) 862-2743 or email admission@email.gscollege.edu for the most up-to-date information.

Student Records

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), as amended, is a federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all educational institutions that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education.

FERPA gives parents certain rights with respect to the educational records of their child(ren). These rights transfer to the student when he or she reaches the age of 18 or attends an institution of higher education. Students to whom the rights have transferred are termed "eligible students."

Annual notification of FERPA is made via the Good Samaritan College of Nursing and Health Science Student Handbook

Educational records of the Good Samaritan College of Nursing and Health Science are maintained in the offices of the Registrar and Financial Aid, the Records Storage Room and on the computer system.

Detailed information is available from the U.S. Department of Education

Refer to the College Catalog for complete coverage of these and other institutional policies.

For complete coverage of all institutional policies please refer to the Good Samaritan College Policies.
