Having trouble? Don't panic, our team is here to help! If you are experiencing technical or hardware issues, please submit a ticket and notify your instructor.
Online classes enable the Moore community the convenience of studying anytime from anywhere. Moore's online classes provide students with visually–rich interactive learning. Nervous about learning online? Adult students learn to navigate the online classroom, gain familiarity with online communication, and get a sense of the dynamics of online interaction as the course begins. Before class gets started, get connected to a strong wifi source, test your Moodle login, and make sure to obtain your Zoom link from your instructor. If all else fails, use your intuition and remember that Google is your friend!

Inappropriate behavior will not be tolerated and Moore reserves the right to dismiss students from the program. Students dismissed from the program due to code of conduct violations do not receive refunds. “Disruption” or “inappropriateness,” as applied to the educational setting means behavior that interferes with normal educational functions. Examples include, but are not limited to, inability or refusal to comply with direction; excessive demands that impede program staff's ability to address the needs of our larger community; bullying, sexual harassment and misconduct, physical threats, personal insults, bodily harm, bodily modification, consumption of illegal substances, illegal underage activity, and any illegal acts. Failure to adhere to these guidelines may result in disciplinary action, program dismissal, and the involvement of security and law enforcement.

AFTER THE PROGRAM
Students enrolled in credit-bearing courses are graded based on their in-class performance, demonstrated effort, the completion of daily homework assignments, and final projects. The quality of a student’s achievement is graded A through F. Grading is a matter of judgment and varies from teacher to teacher. Students are rewarded for individual effort, process, and progress, and not necessarily product.
- A grade in the “A” range is given for high-quality work that reflects an excellent understanding of the issues raised by the assignments.
- A grade in the “B” range is given for above-average work that reflects significant growth and demonstrated potential.
- A grade in the “C” range is a reasonable grade for work that reflects adequate skill and potential for growth.
- A grade in the “D” range is given for work that reflects some ability but does not meet all the requirements.
- A grade of “F” is given to a student who has failed.
- A grade of "W" is given to a student who has withdrawn from the course.
- A grade of "I" is given to students who explicitly request an incomplete from the instructor and communicates a definitive extended deadline by which all coursework must be complete.
Complete your official transcript request any time using Parchment, Moore's secure official transcript request portal! Official transcripts orders are $12 per copy.
