Expectations Regarding Use of Student Assigned Accounts and Privacy of User Names and Passwords
  • Students are individually assigned a Huntingdon College (HC) email address for the purpose of correspondence with College faculty, staff, and other students. It is the responsibility of students to check their Huntingdon College email accounts regularly. The HC email account is an official means of communication between the student and the College. As there is no guarantee of security for academic information or verification of student identity with other email accounts (e.g. Yahoo, AOL), only correspondence received from a student's Huntingdon College email account is considered official.
  • Students also receive login information to the College's student information system (Self Service computer portal.
  • As these accounts are given solely to the student, authentication through these systems can be trusted, as long as the student retains this information in a secure and private manner. It is therefore imperative that students not share their login information with any other party (friends, family, College employees, etc.). Students who feel their information has been compromised, should immediately contact the Office of Technology Services. Reset or lost account passwords will only be distributed to a student in person, or to an alternate account which has been verified as being owned by the student in person.

Canvas LMS Kickoff (Effective Fall 2018)

Beginning with Session I of Fall 2018, we are incorporating an online component into all of our Evening Studies courses. The platform that we will be using is the Canvas Learning Management System. Our courses will still be delivered in the classroom, face-to-face between the faculty member and students. Canvas allows us to add assignments to be completed and submitted online. It also gives you the advantage of being able to have access to your scores on graded assignments at any time. We believe that this will improve the student experience across the Evening Studies program.

Canvas is very intuitive and user-friendly. We have piloted its use in several courses during Summer, and all involved have reported positive results. Our Administrator for the program at Huntingdon College is Dr. Anneliese Spaeth. She has worked diligently with faculty over the past few months to foster a positive learning environment for our students. Dr. Spaeth has created a training video for students. You may find the video at this link:   HC Student Canvas Training Video

For technical questions, we have 24-7 Canvas help, available with no wait time via phone at 1-833-822-2282. 24-7 access to chat is available via the help menu in Canvas, as well. To log in to Canvas, navigate to Huntingdon Canvas, and enter your Huntingdon College email address and its password. You should be redirected to the page once you have logged in. You will find your course module on the Canvas site once you log in. Please be sure to review the tutorial before attempting to navigate Canvas.

New Academic Policy (Effective Fall 2017)
Semester Course Overloads

Effective Fall 2017 for all Evening Studies students, in order to be permitted to enroll in an academic overload (more than three (3) semester credit hours per session), a student must have a minimum 3.5 cumulative GPA as calculated at the end of the semester prior to the overload. The maximum number of hours permitted per semester remains at eighteen (18) semester credit.

New Academic Policy (effective Fall 2015)
Posting of Graduation

Huntingdon College currently offers students a bachelors degree. The degree requires three fundamental pieces related to hours earned and timing of completion: general degree requirements (120 hours, etc.), completion of the College's general education core, and the completion of courses toward an officially declared major.

Beginning Fall 2015, any student who has satisfactorily complete these three pieces, along with the other specified graduation requirements per the student's catalog of matriculation, will have degree completion/graduation automatically posted to his/her record at the end of the applicable term. Students seeking a second major, but who have graduated per the above policy (completed general graduation requirements, general education/core and one major) may still be eligible for financial aid. All majors sought must be declared by the student officially with the Office of the Registrar prior to reaching Senior standing (90 earned credit hours).

Students seeking a minor must declare the minor(s) prior to reaching Senior standing (90 earned credit hours). In rare cases, a student may be permitted to add a minor after this time, but only with confirmation from the Office of the Registrar that the student is missing 6 credit hours or fewer toward completion of the minor.

Upon confirmation of a student's anticipated degree completion, which is sent by the Office of the Registrar, a student may not postpone his/her term of completion in order to complete a minor or a second major, as neither a minor nor a second major is a requirement for a degree at Huntingdon College. Postponement of degree completion will be permitted only for students who have not satisfied all graduation requirements in relation to the general degree requirements, general education core requirements or for officially declared major requirements (assuming no major is completed).
