at Berry College
During the summer semester, Berry College offers several online courses to currently enrolled students. To help students make informed decisions about enrolling in online coursework, students may wish to review policies on admission, tuition and financial aid posted on the respective websites.
Information about all summer courses is available on
VikingWeb through the Course Search function. Courses that are taught online will have the notation “online course” in the course schedule field. The syllabus for each online course clearly notes the technology and software required for these classes. While most faculty
will hold an orientation session before the end of the spring semester to answer questions about the online courses, students may request a copy of the course syllabi by sending an email to the professor directly. Students with other questions about our online courses may contact the college Registrar
by phone at 706-236-2282 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. While all syllabi are required to list policies specific to their courses, general college policies, including grading, withdrawal, and academic integrity are included in the online

Disaster Recovery Plan to ensure the quick restoration of student data and course-related functions.

Students with a complaint are first encouraged
to speak directly with the faculty instructor if it is an academic complaint,
or the registrar for a general college issue. If that is not possible, or
if that meeting does not resolve the complaint, students should meet with the
supervisor of the office, faculty, or staff directly. Students should speak with the appropriate
person(s) to seek resolution prior to lodging a written complaint. All formal
written complaints must be filed using the online Student Complaint Form, which
may be accessed on VikingWeb (link). While
most complaints are typically resolved within the institution, students may
send formal complaints to the designated accreditation and state offices.
Students may file a complaint against the
institution for alleged non-compliance with a standard or requirement. Contact
the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges at 1866

concerning admission requirements, financial aid, educational programs, etc.
