IOC  Policies

IOC Policies


The student’s attention is especially directed to the following regulations:

  1. Students are required to attend all classes as a part of the normal learning process.
  2. To provide for illness and inevitable, legitimate business engagements that conflict with class attendance, no more than two absences are allowed in each ten session course. It should be clearly understood that this allowance is designed for emergency situations. Upon the incident of the third absence an automatic incomplete will be assigned and no grade will be given.
  3. Students having schedule conflicts, causing the student to leave class early, will be responsible for clearing this with the appropriate instructor and for making up class work missed. Individual problems should be brought to the attention of the instructor and Brittany Siriann at
  4. With the approval of the instructor, students may be allowed to make up incomplete work caused by absences.

Class Hours

Classes are held from 5:30 PM until 8:30 PM CST. Instructors may reschedule classes due to schedule conflicts. Semesters are ten (10) weeks in length, classes meeting once a week for three (3) hours.


NACM Connect IOC reserves the right to cancel any class with low enrollment.
