Class Policies
Attendance: Professors are required to take attendance.
Students are expected to attend all courses and course activities for which they are registered. Any class meeting
missed, regardless of cause, reduces the opportunity of learning and may adversely affect a student’s achievement in
the course. Students are required to attend at least 90% of the class meetings in order to receive credit for the course.
An accurate record of attendance will be kept for each course. If a student misses one-third or more of a class meeting,
the student will be counted absent. Three tardies will count as one absence. Leaving early is the same as being tardy.
Missing more than 10% of class meetings will result in course failure regardless of course grade. Excused absences only
determine if a student is permitted to make up missed work. Students must attend 90% of class meetings regardless of
whether the absence was excused or not excused.
Electronic Device Use and Email Policy:
All electronic devices must be silenced during class. Do not answer your cell phone in the classroom. Also, students must
refrain from talking on cell phones just outside of the classroom. Please have your conversation in the common area
surrounding the vending machines.
Late Assignment Policy:
Students are expected to complete all work on time.
Make-up Exam Policy:
You will only be allowed to take a make up test with permission from the instructor and only when there are extreme
circumstances that prevented the student from attending the scheduled test. Makeup tests must be requested in
writing within the Blackboard course.
Withdrawal Policy:
Students are expected to withdrawl from the course before the withdrawl dated otherwise a failing grade will be issued
for the course for absences in excess of 10% of class meetings.

Classroom Etiquette and Student Behavior Guidelines
Template Date – July 2013

Palm Beach State College
Course Syllabus – Classroom/Hybrid Class
The purpose of this information is to assist students in understanding proper classroom behavior. The classroom
should be a learning centered environment in which faculty and students are unhindered by disruptive behavior. You
are a college student and are expected to act in a mature manner. Unfortunately, we are finding students who seem
to be disrespectful of the learning process and their fellow students. Faculty have the authority to manage their
classrooms to ensure an environment conducive to learning. Florida Statute 69-279 and PALMBEACHSTATE Board
Rule 6Hx-18.35 state:
Any person who shall accept the privilege (emphasis added) extended by Florida laws of attendance or employment
at any state college, state junior college or state university shall by so attending or working at such institution, be
deemed to have given consent to the policies of the institution, the Board of Regents and the laws of this state. Such
policies shall include prohibition against disruptive activities at state institutions of higher learning.
● Take responsibility for your education - There is a common myth among students that because they pay tuition they
deserve to receive credit for the class. This is not true. In fact, students pay approximately 25 percent of the cost of
their education; taxpayers pay the rest. Instructors are here to create a learning environment. Whether you learn
depends on your willingness to listen, ask appropriate questions, and do the work necessary to pass the course. If
your academic preparation from high school is weak or if you have been out of school for a period of time, you may
have to work and seek more help in order to succeed.
● Attend every class - You will find that students who attend every class, listen to the instructor and take good notes
will be more likely to pass (with a higher grade). If you have an emergency or illness, contact your instructor ahead of
time to let her/him know that you will be absent. A local study showed that students who missed the first class
meeting were more likely later to withdraw or fail. Important note: if you missed the first class meeting it is your
responsibility to meet with the instructor, outside of regular class time, to determine a plan to make up the missed
work.
● Get to class on time - Students who walk into the classroom late distract other students in the learning
environment.
● Do not have private conversations - The noise is distracting to other students.
● Turn beepers and cellular phones off - It is also very distracting to hear someone’s beeper or cellular phone go off in
class.
● Do not dominate other students’ opportunity to learn by asking too many questions – It’s good to ask questions and
make comments, but if you dominate the class time with too many questions and/or comments, the instructor and
other students cannot participate in class discussions. Also, when asking questions and making comments, keep them
related to the discussion at hand.
● Respect your instructor - Openly challenging the instructor’s knowledge or authority in the classroom is not proper.
If you take issue with the instructor’s information or instructional methods, make sure that your comments are made
without confrontation or antagonism. You may want to discuss your issues with him/her privately.
● Faculty classroom policies, procedures and teaching styles vary - Some faculty enforce attendance policies
vigorously, other instructors are more lenient about attendance. Assignments and classroom activities are at the
prerogative of the instructor. Each instructor has the freedom and authority to set the guidelines and policies for their
classroom (within the overall policies of the college).
● Your classmates deserve your respect and support - Others may have different ideas and opinions from yours, they
may ask questions you perceive to be "stupid," but they deserve the same level of respect from you as you wish from
them.
● Come to class prepared - Students who forget common classroom supplies such as a pencil, paper, books, test
materials, etc. usually waste class time. Students who have not completed their assigned homework many times ask
questions that could have been answered through their assignments.
● Turn in your work on time - It is important to plan ahead. Students who wait until the last minute to do their work
usually make lower grades and are more likely to miss deadlines. Study and do your assignments every day. If a
problem occurs at the last minute such as a computer malfunction, you will still be prepared.

● Do not bring children to class - Children in classrooms are distracting to the instructor, other students, and you. You
need to plan ahead for childcare.
● When having academic difficulty seek assistance - Your faculty are willing to assist you however, there are other
ways to get help. The Center for Personalized Instruction has tutorial assistance available for many courses, student
services can assist with course scheduling and career development and specific course, such as SLS1501 Strategies for
College Success, are offered to help you succeed.
If you have questions or need assistance, please make an appointment to see your academic advisor or call 561/8683412. She/he is willing to assist you so that you can succeed.
Students will demonstrate respect for instructors and fellow students. Behavior that is disruptive to a positive
learning environment reported by the instructor will result in a warning on the first instance; the second instance
might result in expulsion from the course or campus.
