Graduate Policies and Procedures
You must earn a minimum grade of B in each course to be eligible for the full course load.
Sara Schenirer allows one emergency absence per course. Missing more than one class may result in course failure.
Two latenesses are the equivalent of one absence. Coming more than five minutes late equals a lateness; coming more than fifteen minutes late equals an absence.
The best way to reach us is via email. Please make sure to open and read every email that is sent to you in its entirety. It’s very important to check your emails daily.
Every professor and coordinator will provide you with contact information. As is expected in a professional environment, only use the contact information provided to you by your professors and administrative staff.
Please allow two business days to receive a response when you contact a professor or staff member (this does not include weekends). Therefore, if you email a professor with a question about an assignment the night before the deadline, you will likely not receive a response before your assignment is due.
It is the student’s responsibility to be responsive to instructor correspondence in a prompt fashion. Please note, checking your spam folder and college email account will help you stay up to date. We advise you to forward your college account emails to your personal email account to stay up to date.
In deference to our commitment to meet the standards of all of our students, we request that you adhere to the following dress code, both in Zoom and in-person classes:
A $75 registration fee was paid when you started your degree in Sara Schenirer. This fee covers your expected time as a student in that degree program plus at least one additional semester to allow extra time for students who need to take a lower course load. Please refer to the chart below for when a re-registration fee is charged.
Once enrolled in a degree program for a semester, if a student wishes to change from that program to a different program within Sara Schenirer, they must pay a $150 application fee.
Please ensure that you have appropriate technology and internet accessibility. This would include a laptop or desktop with a mic and webcam.
