Correspondence
QUB’s policy with regard to number of days that will elapse between QUB’s receipt of the student lessons and QUB’s mail back  response or evaluation  is 7 days.  For a  thesis or dissertation and special class projects, the student can expect to receive feedback within 15 days. Exceptions can be made due to emergencies and unforeseen circumstances.

Student Interaction and Study Groups
Group study will be encouraged  for both online and classroom courses. Group study  is a helpful way  to  re-enforce  the  personal  first  time  study  and  expand  the  range  of  learning  of  the participating students. Interaction is the key to a successful and productive learning environment and is the essence of the instructor’s facilitative skills.

Libraries
Since  the  University  offers  both  a  distance  learning  program  and  classroom  instruction;  the University requests that the student verify that he or she has access to any needed local college libraries,  computers,  software  programs,  online  databases,  networks  and  database  retrieval mentors  and  specialists.  This  information  enables  the  Admissions  Committee  to  evaluate  an applicant’s potential for success in the learning environment of the given course.

Each  student  is  provided  with  a  Student  Identification  Card  to  simplify  and  facilitate  student access to college level libraries in his or her local area. The Student Identification Card is issued upon the acceptance of the student into their respective degree program. There is no charge for the  initial  identification  card.  However,  if  the  student  should  lose  their  card  and  require  a replacement card, there is a $20.00 replacement fee. Also, each student is provided with a library password for access to the university’s respective library links.

This can be downloaded from the Website, using Student Password. The University maintains an Internet Web Site. From this site, many different academic reference and research materials, as well as library resources can be accessed.
