Course Syllabus – Classroom Courses
Class Policies
Attendance: Professors are required to take attendance.
Attendance will be taken daily. Regular and timely attendance is expected and required. Test items will come from the
text and from your notes. If you miss a class, you are responsible for getting the notes from a classmate. Attendance
points will not be given for late attendance after lecture has begun (door will be locked 10 minutes after class has
begun). Attendance will be taken twice every class (before the break and at the end of the class period). Therefore, if
you miss one complete class period, it will count as 2 missed classes. Based on the previous statements, students will
be allowed to miss 4 classes during the term without affecting the total points (100) assigned for attendance. After that,
4 points will be subtracted for each missed class (e.g. if the student misses 5 classes during the semester, a total of 20
points will be subtracted from the 100 points assigned for attendance). If the student misses 8 classes or more, the
student may be removed from the roster (see withdrawal policy)and/or the student will get O (zero) points for
attendance.
Electronic Device Use and Email Policy:
Cell phones are to be silenced during class time. For an emergency call please tell the instructor and take the call
outside of the classroom. It should be a rare event that you must take a call during class. Laptops may be used to take
notes. If it is apparent that laptops are being used for other purposes, student will be dismissed from the class.
Handheld PDAs should not be used in class. Cell phones must be kept out of the student desk. First time, students will
be warned politely about the cell phone policy. The second time, student will be dismissed from the class and his/her
name removed from the roster .
Late Assignment Policy:
Homework assignments are due on the assigned date. Late assignments will not be accepted.
Make-up Exam Policy:
No make-up quizzes for this class. The quiz with the lowest score will be dropped. If you miss a quiz, it will count as
your lowest score and it will be dropped. If you must miss a second quiz, the score of your lowest quiz will be doubled
and used to calculate your grade (Note: You must have a valid excuse to receive credit for a second missed quiz). If you
must miss a third quiz, it will be counted as a zero.
Makeup exams will be available only with a written letter for your absence, i.e. medical, legal, etc. signed and dated by
the party responsible for your absence. Students must provide notice of their absence prior to the exam or the day of
the exam. Makeup exams will not be given without such timely notice. Makeup exams must be scheduled to be taken
within five (5) days of the missed exam.
Withdrawal Policy:
The last day to withdraw from a College course with a "W" grade in this course is June 13, 2016.
It is the responsibility of the student to use the PantherWeb system or visit a campus Registrar’s office to withdraw.
An official withdrawal entitles the student to a grade of "W" in the class.
In some cases (up to the instructor), students may be also removed for the class roster if he/she accumulates 8 or more
missing classes during the semester. It does not matter the reason for missing those classes. However, removal of the
class will be analyzed case by case, students should not expect an automatic withdrawal.
