About This Document
This is a hypermedia document – it has been built to mimic navigation on the
web. This document can also be viewed as a presentation or it can be printed
like a traditional document. We use this sort of document because it allows for
navigation links (hyperlinks) to text, graphics, audio/video, and the web. This
type of document also allows you to navigate in a nontraditional, nonlinear way
– by following the page links you are not bound to read or flip through the
document in any sort of order. This is yet another example of Moser College’s
commitment to advancements in technology and blended learning.
About Moser College
The Moser College of Adult & Professional Studies delivers its curricular
programs in a specifically designed structure deliberately oriented for working,
adult learners. The Moser College is committed to providing a learning
environment which extends beyond the classroom and is designed specifically
to meet the needs of its students and their employers by bringing a quality
educational experience without requiring the student to relocate or travel
extensively beyond their home area. Benedictine University's Moser College of
Adult & Professional Studies is fully accredited by the Higher Learning
Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools*.

About Blended Learning
Blended learning is the integration of different learning environments: mainly the
online format with the face-to-face format, but may also include mobile learning.
Blended learning, also referred to as hybrid learning, relies on both the advantages
of digital/technology innovation and the methods of face-to-face instruction. At
Moser College, we use blended learning by combining asynchronous online
classroom sessions with a face-to-face classroom environment. We alternate
between the online session and the face-to-face session in 5-week courses, with
the A session being face-to-face and the B session being online.

Financial Aid Information
Applying for Financial Aid
A college education is one of the largest financial investments a family will make. We believe that an education
from Benedictine University will provide valuable returns throughout a student's lifetime. The Office of Financial
Aid is dedicated to helping students and their families make a Benedictine University education affordable. We
view the process of financing an education as a partnership. Although the student and his/her family have primary
responsibility for meeting college costs, Benedictine University, as well as the federal and state governments have
a variety of financial aid programs available to students who need financial assistance.
Types of Financial Aid
Benedictine University's Office of Financial Aid administers a variety of federal, state
and institutional programs of student financial assistance. All financial aid recipients
must maintain satisfactory academic progress in accordance with the published,
"Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy for Financial Aid Recipients.“
•
After completing the financial aid application process, the student will receive a
financial aid award notification letter. The award letter will include the
program(s) that the student is eligible to receive and the award amount(s).
•
Grants/Scholarships - Grants and scholarships are considered to be gift
assistance. This means the awards do not have to be repaid.
•
Loans - Loans are considered to be a form of self-help assistance. Loan programs
provide funds for educational purposes and are paid back with interest.
•
Employment - Part-time jobs on campus are available to students through the
University and Federal Work-Study program. Students working on campus
receive a bi-weekly paycheck.
•
Applying for Financial Aid – All students applying for financial aid are asked to
complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
FAFSA – Free Application for Federal Student Aid
The FAFSA is required for all federal, state (Illinois residents) and Benedictine University need-based assistance.
It should be completed as soon as possible after January 1st. Applying online with FAFSA on the Web at
www.fafsa.gov is faster and easier than using a paper FAFSA. Have your completed U.S. Federal Income Tax
returns readily available when completing the FAFSA. Include Benedictine University's school code:
001767 so the results of your FAFSA application will automatically be sent to our financial aid office. Sign you
FAFSA with a Federal Student Aid PIN. Apply for a PIN at www.pin.ed.gov. If you are providing parent
information, one parent must also sign you FAFSA.

About Netiquette
What is Netiquette?
"Netiquette" stands for "Internet Etiquette", and refers to the set of practices which help to make the online
experiences pleasant for all involved. As you might expect, netiquette, like other forms of etiquette, is about
courtesy, manners, codes of behavior, protocols and respect. Netiquette primarily focuses on how we interact with
one another online, by being aware of: our use of language, others’ cultural background, conventional norms, and
other behaviors. Below you will find guidelines concerning the basics of online interaction. If it isn’t something you
would say or do in the face-to-face classroom, it is probably inappropriate in the online class as well.
Netiquette Basics
1. Follow the Golden Rule (“One should treat others as one would like others to treat oneself”)
2. Be ethical, fair, tolerant and mindful of others – avoid stereotyping, judgment and prejudice
3. Know the boundaries of particular cyberspaces – what is acceptable in a text or chatroom with friends may
not be appropriate in a classroom or in an online conversation with an instructor
4. Respect the time of others by: 1) using descriptive subject lines, 2) resizing images for the web, 3) providing
links instead of copying and pasting content, 5) using white space by inserting blank lines between paragraphs
and headers and 6) limiting your use of attachments
5. Copy the minimum number of people – it is tempting to send “email” or “message blasts” because it is easier
for the poster, but it is not easier for the reader
Inappropriate Online Usage
1. Avoid “flaming” – flaming is sending offensive, insulting or criticizing messages. This happens more often
online then in face-to-face interaction, because there is an illusion of anonymity.
2. Flaming is neither productive nor appropriate for the learning environment
3. Always avoid flaming when it comes to content and opinions, but also avoid it when it comes to grammar,
punctuation and spelling corrections
4. Avoid using CAPS if possible and never type messages in ALL CAPS – this is considered yelling and is often
seen as a form of aggression
5. Use emoticons ( :) , :( , :-) ) sparingly and avoid the use of JK, BRB, LOL and other text language
Confidentiality and Privacy
1.
2.
3.
4.
Email, messaging and posting are forms of written record and are just as permanent as a letter or document
Do not publicize your own or others’ personal information (such as email, phone numbers, last names etc.)
Respect copyright and cite any and all sources
Do not expect that your communications are private, instead assume all communications are public

Resources for Success
Benedictine’s Library Resources
Benedictine University Libraries strive to provide the resources for all of your academic and research
needs. Providing access to over 120 databases, 200,000 books and eBooks, and helpful librarians 7
days a week, we are here to assist you in person and online.
The primary mission of the Benedictine University Library is to provide library resources and services
that support the Benedictine University community and meet its academic and research needs. To
support our mission, the Library has made provisions for all students to gain access to important
academic resources through the Benedictine Library Website. As you begin your academic journey
please take note of these key concepts that will affect that access:
•
Entry into academic databases and most Library resources must be made through the Benedictine
Library Website at www.ben.edu/library
•
Within one week of your official enrollment your patron information will be automatically entered
into the library system, where once entered, you will be able to check out books and access
databases
•
When off-campus you will be prompted by authentication software (a proxy server) to provide
your Library ID number and last name to access article databases and request books. This software
proxy server confirms that you are a current Benedictine University student and thus allowed
access
•
Your Library ID number is a combination of the Benedictine Library prefix 2281100 and your
seven-digit student ID number (also called your “b” number). Thus 2281100XXXXXXX is
the Library ID number with X’s being the seven digit student number. This number is prominently
located just below the barcode on your Benedictine ID card
•
For further information on any aspect of Library resources and access please call or write the
Benedictine Library Reference Desk at 630-829-6057 or [email protected] Please take note of
Library hours and staff directory located on the Library Website under About the Library and feel
free to contact us about any concern or need you might have
additional resources for student success:

University Academic Honesty Policy
The search for truth and the dissemination of knowledge are the central missions of a university.
Benedictine University pursues these missions in an environment guided by our Roman Catholic
tradition and our Benedictine Heritage. Integrity and honesty are therefore expected of all University
students. Actions such as cheating, plagiarism, collusion, fabrication, forgery, falsification,
destruction, multiple submission, solicitation, and misrepresentation are violations of these
expectations and constitute unacceptable behavior in the University community.
To access the complete Academic Honesty Policy, which includes student responsibility, responsibility
and authority of faculty, violations, reporting and communicating, responsibilities of the provost,
appeals, composition of the academic appeals board, procedures of the academic appeals board, and
records, please select the following link: www.ben.edu/ahp
APA Formatting and Style
All course assignments must use APA citation and formatting. This is a
mandatory requirement for all assignments, including discussions, if a
publication or other work is being referenced. For more information on
APA, please see the APA Style section at the website of the American
Psychological Association, linked here: www.apa.org/
APA resources for students: www.apa.org/about/students.aspx
Services for Students with Disabilities
Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990
prohibit discrimination against individuals with disabilities by standing provision of reasonable
accommodations to make programs and activities accessible to qualified individuals with disabilities.
If you have a documented learning, psychological, or physical disability, you may be eligible for
reasonable academic accommodations or services. To request accommodations or services, please

IDEA Description
The IDEA student survey focuses on the instructor’s learning objectives for the course and on the
progress each student made toward achieving those objectives. By answering thoughtfully and
honestly, your ratings and comments will be much more helpful – to the instructor, the department
chair, and the dean of the college. As students, you should also know that student ratings and
comments have been used to help evaluate courses and to improve the educational experience at
Benedictine University. The appropriate standard of conduct with respect to student surveys is
thoughtful comments and constructive criticism – respectfully communicated.
A Focus on Learning
“The IDEA Student Ratings system looks at instruction in terms of its endgame. Rather than
emphasizing teaching style or personality, the IDEA system focuses on student learning and the
methods used to facilitate it.” – from the IDEA website: www.theideacenter.org/node/5
