Course materials:

Please be aware that the EXCEL course materials will no longer be provided to students in print format.  Instead, all materials (modules, assignments, appendixes) will be available in LearnHQ in electronic format. Students will continue to work with an instructor (tutor) through a combination of telephone contact sessions and/or e-mail correspondence. 

Deadline for returning all assignments and the final examination:

It has come to our attention that a few students have been very late in submitting their assignments or their final exam. To help our instructors in their work, a final deadline for returning all assignments and the final exam has been initiated. All assignments and the final exam should be received by the tutor no later than 2 weeks after the end of the semester. After this date, the tutor will mark the student with an incomplete notation for that course. If for a serious reason the student cannot complete the requirements of a course that student should contact SOLS immediately by e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots.
