- Classes are scheduled to commence the week of June 3. Once you have registered, please take note of the day(s) and time for your class(es).

- All courses offered through the Digital Education Centre are fully online and accredited.

- Please ensure that you have access to a reliable Wi-Fi connection. You must have regular, reliable internet access if you are to succeed in your course. Make sure you have a backup plan (use of a campus, library, work, or a friend's computer system) in case you experience problems with your computer or your Internet Service Provider.

- You must have a working laptop or personal computer to complete your course. Ensure that your device has Microsoft Word installed and that it is functioning.

- You will access course content and materials using your ID number and password to log into the Learning Management System (LMS) – AEorion.

Live class sessions will be held on the day(s) and time outlined for each course. However, if there is an adjustment, the facilitator for the course will indicate otherwise.

- Once you log in for class, your activity will be monitored by our Course Quality Administrator, Camille Myers (Miss). If you face any technical difficulties, please contact us and you will be assisted by the Senior Instructional Technologist, Ryan McCalla.

- If you need assistance, please ask. You may contact us via email at digitaleducation@ncu.edu.jm or our telephone straight line at 876-618-1652, Ext. #s 7198, 7191, 7816, or 6428, or the cell phone number at 876-347-8368.

- We require a minimum payment of 50% of the course cost upon registration, with the remaining balance payable before the course ends. Failure to make any payment during registration will result in the inability to access classes. Essentially, course access is contingent upon successful registration.

Online payment option:

Login to AEorion
Click the Finance tab at the top of the page
Under the heading “Tuition and General Payment”, click “Pay with a credit card.”
Enter payment details (without special characters such as commas, dollar signs, or full stops in the amount section).

Offline payment option:

Offline payments can be made through NCB, Bill Express, or Paymaster using your ID number. After payment, email a copy of the receipt to us, and we'll forward it to the Student Finance Department for processing. Alternatively, you can send it directly to studentfinance@ncu.edu.jm and copy the Digital Education Centre.

- If you register with a partial payment and have an outstanding balance at the end of the registration month, the Student Finance Department will charge a 1.5% finance fee on the remaining amount. Therefore, before making the final payment, check with them for the updated outstanding balance

- If you plan to drop or withdraw from a course, please complete the process before the registration deadline on June 14. Notify us via email so we can assist you. There is a specific timeframe for refund eligibility in these cases. It is important to inform us or the facilitator promptly; don't wait until the last minute to communicate your decision.

- While all class sessions are recorded, attendance is expected during live sessions as student-facilitator interaction occurs at that time, and the classes are not self-paced. In the event of unforeseen circumstances leading to a missed session, you can access the recording for the class(es) you were unable to attend.

- All tasks, including assignments, quizzes, exams, etc., assigned by facilitators must be finished and submitted as instructed within the designated timeframe.

- Please make sure to activate your account, which includes your NCU email address. This is the primary channel for communications received from the facilitator and the department. To access your email, navigate to Gmail and log in using your NCU student email address and the password you created for the AEorion System.

- Shortlisted courses for the period are dependent upon registration numbers. The following is a list of courses that have attained the necessary student enrollment and are scheduled for offering. If the course you have reserved is not included in the list below, we will furnish updates before the conclusion of the registration period. At that point, you will receive instructions regarding the course's status, and if necessary, options to switch to an alternative course. Should you require assistance, feel free to contact us.

These certificates are typically distributed to various NCU locations, including Kingston, Montego Bay, St. Ann's Bay, and Mandeville, for your retrieval.

- As part of the course process, you will encounter a Location Survey, wherein you are required to select the location nearest to you. Your Facilitator will furnish additional instructions on completing both this Location Survey as well as the Student Evaluation Form. Failure to complete the Location Survey will result in your certificate being held at the Digital Education Centre in Mandeville, necessitating you to make your arrangements for collection.

- Certificates are usually prepared and distributed within two (2) months after the conclusion of all the courses (the longest course duration being 15 weeks), provided that the Facilitators have submitted the final grades. If you have not completed payment before the end of your course, you will be required to arrange for the collection of your certificate from the Mandeville Campus once the outstanding balance has been settled.
