The instructor reserves the right to withdraw a student from the class (WX) after 3 absences. These 3 absences are yours to use as you wish; however, they will be your only allotted absences, so use them wisely. You do not need to notify the instructor of these absences, but you will be held responsible for all missed material covered in class, assignments due, quizzes, and the like.

Palm Beach State College Course Syllabus – Classroom Courses final grade will be lowered by 3 percentage points for each additional absence. For example, 6 total semester absences = minus 9% on final course grade. Please respect fellow students and the instructor by arriving on‐time and remaining until the end of class. If students need to leave early or arrive late for pre‐planned reasons, see intrsuctor before class to request permission. Walking out of the room during class is strongly discouraged and will negatively impact students' participation grades. Electronic Device Use and Email Policy: Students will be given the mutual respect and flexibility afforded to current or future professionals, and they should act in ways that reflect this. Any disruptive behavior ‐ electronics‐related or otherwise ‐ will not be tolerated. Students must turn off or silent phones at the beginning of class and keep them put away. Texting during class is not permitted. Repeated disruptions will result in a meeting with the instructor to determine further actions and will negatively impact your participation grade. If you have a special situation, you must notify the instructor prior to class beginning. Students are not permitted to take pictures or audio/video record in class unless authorized to do so by Disability Support Services. Students may use laptops to take notes during class; however, if these are used for other purposes then this permission will be rescinded.

The instructor will only respond to student emails that originate from students' PBSC email addresses, per college policy.

Expect email responses within 48 hours during the school week: Monday ‐ Friday. Late Assignment Policy: Late assignments will not be accepted unless there is a valid, documented emergency (defined below). Students may not email their assignments to the instructor; they must be present in class to turn them in at the time they are due unless there is a valid, documented emergency.

Emergencies are defined per the Student Handbook as: confining illness, serious accident, death of an immediate relative, or religious observance.
