For classes more than eight weeks long, 100 percent of tuition and refundable fees are refunded before the start of the session. After that, 75 percent is refunded in the first seven calendar days (days 1-7); 50 percent is refunded in the next seven days (days 8-14); and 25 percent is refunded in the following seven (days 15-21) days. After that, there are no refunds.
For classes eight weeks long or less, 100 percent is refunded before the start of class and 25 percent is refunded in the next seven calendar days (days 1-7). The only exception to this is for a class that is less than one week in length, where students must withdraw before the first meeting in order to receive a refund.
Distance education is defined by Suffolk County Community College in its broadest context to be inclusive of those teaching/learning methodologies and strategies that are computer-based and technology-mediated. The basic premise of distance education is to allow students to participate in the learning process from a distant location and not necessarily in real time.Synchronous distance learning classroom courses are, in fact, conducted in real-time and at more than one campus location.Asynchronous courses are those in which the course content, assignments and all student/student or student/faculty interactions are conducted online via computer over the Internet.Blended/Hybrid courses meet both on-campus and online during the semester.Telecourses require class meetings on-campus and viewing of video materials independently. Distance learning courses, then, are intended for students who may find that distance education suits their learning needs or lifestyles better than traditional on-campus instruction and these courses are offered to ensure maximum accessibility to Suffolk County Community College’s extensive educational opportunities.To view Distance Education Modalities (Course Types) click on Distance_Education_Modalities
Distance Education courses are attractive options for individuals who are self-motivated and can work independently in a less structured learning environment. Distance Education courses are fully credited college courses. There is no difference in WHAT you are expected to learn. It is the WAY you learn that is different.As with any college course, you should enroll in distance education courses only if you are serious about studying college-level material each week without leaving your home to come to campus. When taking a telecourse, for example, you are required to view all of the video lessons, complete all assignments (e.g., essay exams, research papers, etc.) and read all printed material. Many students report that distance education courses actually require MORE work than traditional on-campus courses. These same students also report that they learn just as much, if not more, from a distance education course.Those who succeed as distance learners - are highly motivated - are independent - are active learners - have good organizational and time management skills - have the discipline to study without external reminders - can adapt to new learning environments The above are precisely the qualities needed to succeed in any learning environment, but the distance learning context puts special pressures on learners to be both independent and self-disciplined. Success in fully online asynchronous courses, as example, depends on a combination of personal motivation, the ability to understand and use computer technology, self-direction in managing coursework deadlines, and a willingness to use solely the written word to communicate with both the instructor and classmates.
This depends on the modality of the course you are enrolled into. For further details please go to
All textbooks and supplies required for distance courses are available through the bookstores on the three campuses along with certain online-accessible materials.Campus Bookstores

Have you received an eMail that wants you to supply personal info? PHISHING SCAM ALERT !!
Many of us have received emails in our college accounts (or at home) that seem to have been sent by an institution that needs personal information from us. It may be a "bank" saying your account has been compromised, a "college" asking you to confirm your email address, or a common service like PayPal or eBay telling you that your account is restricted and may be locked or deleted if you don't respond right away!
There's a good chance you are the target of phishing.
Phishing is an attempt by criminals hiding behind the "cloud" of the Internet to fool people into believing that are receiving real mail from a trusted institution. If you click the link in the email you will be brought to a real-looking page that starts by asking you to login to your account; or they might ask you to confirm your email by giving them your email password; or they might ask you for your social security number to "prove" who you are. If you comply, criminals may now have your real login, password and critical personal information
"Phishers" may actually go so far as to set up a site that looks like a real bank, financial, or other site you are familiar with. This is not as difficult as you might think. Because of the open nature of the web, it is no problem to copy a legitimate company's images and graphics from their real site. Someone who would steal your personal information for fraud is not going to worry about stealing some pictures.
This "site" will typically have links, such as a help link, home page, and others that link to the real company's own pages. They know you may click on some of these links in a quest to determine whether the swindler's page is the real deal. Don't be fooled!

Details of "Citibank" Phishing Scam
FBI's Description of some newer phishing scams
If you are presented with a login box on any page reached through an email link, don't use it! Better to go to the trouble of typing in the known URL (web address) of the institution and logging in from there.
Sometimes legitimate institutions you know will send you emails with "convenience" links to look at merchandise, check your account, see your bill. Should you click these? Ask yourself: Am I absolutely sure this is what I think it is? If you have even the slightest doubt, isn't it better to be safe than sorry?
If you receive a "scary" message that you are afraid might be real ("Your Hometown Bank account has been accessed by a person in a foreign country and money was withdrawn. If you did not authorize this transaction, access your account with the link below.") call your bank on the telephone with the phone number on your statement, or use the phone book. They will be happy to assist and may also want the information in the scam email.
From: Wachovia Bank [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org]
Sent: Tuesday, April 29, 2008 7:44 PM

Subject: secure confirmation. (Tue, 29 Apr 2008 16:43:04 -0800)
Dear Wachovia Bank customer,
We would like to inform you that we are currently carrying out scheduled maintenance.
In order to guarantee the high level of security to our business customers, we require you to complete "Wachovia Commercial Online Form".
Please complete Wachovia Commercial Online Form using the link below:
This is auto-generated email, please do not respond to this email.
There is only one "clue" that might give someone not alert to phishing pause: the rather odd grammar of "we require you to complete 'Wachovia Commercial Online Form'." where an English speaker might expect to see an article such as "the" or "our" before the name of the form.
However, suppose this "error" wasn't there? You can't be confident that an email trying to get information from you is real because it "looks right." This email seems to be from Wachovia bank according to the code in the links you can see. But links can be "spoofed" (counterfeited). If you could look at the code behind these "real" links you would see they don't link to Wachovia Bank at all.

If you are awarded both and you want a student loan, you must accept the subsidized loan first as it is in your best interest. Once you receive your award letter you will need to log on to the college web site at www.sunysuffolk.edu and accept or decline the award offer. If you are a first-time borrower you will need to complete an Entrance Interview and sign an electronic Master Promissory Note (E-MPN) at www.studentloans.gov. Once you complete these tasks the college will be notified and your loan request will be sent to the Department of Education for approval.
