Class preparation

Scheduling

Once your proposal to teach a class is accepted, you’ll work with your Century College program planner to schedule the class based on student needs and room availability.

Contracts, Agreements, and Payroll Materials

As the date of your class approaches, you'll receive a packet of materials from our instructional support staff, which will include:

  • Continuing Education Employment Agreement(s)/Contract
  • Audiovisual (AV) Request Form
  • Software/Hardware Request Form (computer classes only)
  • Century College map
  • Payroll packet (for new employees on payroll)
  • Paycheck/advice stub tips (for employees on payroll)

Complete the forms and return them to the Century College Continuing Education and Customized Training Office as soon as possible.

AV Requests

Requests must be made at least ONE WEEK in advance of your class start date. Return your AV request with your Continuing Education Employment Agreement/Contract.

If you are uncertain about how to use any equipment in the classroom, schedule a training session with either Annette Mike (651.779.3903) or the IT Help Desk (651.779.3495.)

Duplicating

Century College staff will complete any duplicating required for your class; however:

  • you must send all duplicating requests TWO WEEKS in advance of the class start date. If we do not receive these materials two weeks in advance, you will need to have them copied at your own expense.
    (Note: No copying facilities are available on campus for last-minute duplicating, so please plan ahead.)
  • you may send or email your handouts for duplicating to Annette Mike, Instructional Support Manager, Continuing Education Customized Training, Century College, 3300 Century Avenue North, White Bear Lake, MN 55110.

Class Materials

The class attendance roster, duplicated materials, and class evaluation forms will be delivered to your classroom on the day or evening of your class. If you have a one-session class, Certificates of Completion will also be provided.

Classroom Keys

You will need to obtain a key to unlock your classroom, as all classrooms are locked when not in use. Contact your program planner for a key.

Single-session classes

Pick up a classroom key one half hour prior to the start of your class at the Continuing Education office, EAST campus room 2420. At the end of class, make sure that the room is locked. Place the key in the class materials envelope, along with the completed evaluation forms and class roster, and return them to the Continuing Education office. If it is after office hours, please slide the packet under the doors of E2420.

Multiple-session classes

Your program planner will issue a key that you will use for the duration of your class. At the end of your final class, place the key in the class materials envelope, along with the completed evaluation forms and class attendance roster. Return them to the Continuing Education office, or after office hours, slide the packet under the doors of E2420.

During class

Plan to be in your classroom 30 minutes prior to the start of class.

Attendance

Check attendance at every class session.

Students Not on Your Roster

If a student has not registered, direct him/her to the Continuing Education Office, E2420, to register BEFORE attending class.

If this happens on a weekend, after 6 pm or at an off-campus location, use the extra registration forms in the packet of materials that has been left in your classroom. Unregistered students must complete the entire registration form. Note: If they decline to give a social security number, they must give a date of birth.

Payment may be made by check (payable to Century College) or credit card. Enclose any registration forms with other materials (class attendance rosters, evaluation forms, etc.) in the materials envelope.

Certificates and attendance rosters

One-session classes

Certificates are provided for all students on the class roster. At the end of your session, distribute certificates to students. Return unclaimed certificates in the materials envelope, along with your class attendance roster and class evaluations.

Students who registered on the day of your class will receive certificates in the mail.

Multiple-session classes

Take attendance at each class, using the roster provided. In order to issue the correct number of hours, we must know how many hours the student attended class. We cannot award hours for classes that were not attended.

Place your attendance roster and student evaluation forms in the materials envelope provided and return to the Continuing Education Customized Training office, E2420, or slide underneath the doors.

Return these materials after your SECOND TO LAST CLASS. We will prepare certificates to be handed out during the last class. Should a student miss the last class, return the certificate to the Continuing Education Office. We will adjust the number of hours earned and mail the certificate to the student.

To cut down on mailing expenses, return your class roster after your second to last class. If you are unable to drop off this list, call our Instructional Support Specialist at 651.773.1797 to give staff attendance information over the phone, so that we may have the certificates ready for your last class.

You may also fax the roster to 651.779.5802 (attention: Instructional Support Specialist).

Class evaluations

Evaluations are the primary method for students to provide feedback on the value of a course. Tallied results of certain portions of the evaluation are also required by Minnesota State Colleges & Universities system (MnSCU).

Please encourage all students to fill out the evaluation forms. Place these forms in the materials envelope, along with your class attendance roster and key.
