Course Policies
Instructor Policies It is vitally important that all student read and follow the Rules and Regulations mandated by Lamar State College-Port Arthur and Texas Department of Licensing and Regulations.

Regular class attendance is important to the attainment of the educational objectives of the college. The cosmetology program has formulated an attendance policy that is consistent with the objectives of the program and the needs of the student to accumulate clock hours. In reality, there are no excused absences in Cosmetology. TDLR requires that a student can only acquire clock hours if they are under the direction of a licensed Cosmetology instructor and show proof of their clock hours. If you are not in attendance, you will fall short on your hours and education. Students must make every attempt to be on time and in class each day. It’s the student’s responsibility to make up assignments and any hours missed.

As a courtesy, an instructor will make every attempt to open the clock at 7:15 a.m. to allow students the opportunity to make-up additional minutes.

Note: This is a courtesy, not a requirement.

Students may clock in as soon as the clock is turned on until 8 a.m.

Students are tardy at 8:01 a.m. Students who are tardy will not be allowed to clock in until AFTER FIRST BREAK AT 9:45 a.m.

Tardy students will be counted absent at 9:46 a.m.

A.M. absences may NOT clock until 12:00 p.m., unless authorized by an instructor.

Upon clocking in, the student must be on the lab floor on task.

Students must clock out for their lunch breaks. Students not clocking out for lunch will be in violation and written up. Failure to clock in after break or lunch will result in a loss of hours.

Each student is assigned a code to clock in; it is your responsibility to clock in and out each day. No student may clock in or out for another. This is considered stealing and both students will be written up and removed from the program.
Students are responsible for all materials covered in class. If you quit coming to class and do not officially drop, your grades will be averaged, and you will receive the grade represented by this average. Administrative details are your responsibility (You must officially drop the course).

Make-up exams will NOT be given. If you miss an exam BECAUSE of an EXCUSED ABSENCE, your lowest Unit Exam grade will be used for the missed exam. You can only miss ONE exam per class with an excused absence (excluding the final). Student must be present for all final exams.

Excused absences include medical and family emergencies and are determined at the instructor's discretion. Written proof from a physician will be required for medical and family emergencies in order to substitute the score for missed exam ONLY. Documentation must be turned in to your instructor upon your return the following morning.
Tardies and Absences Disciplinary Action:

176 Contact Hour Courses are limited to 4 half days: 3 tardies equal half day absence.

CSME 1501, 1547, 1553, & 2501

160 Contact Hour Courses are limited to 3 half days: 2 tardies equal half day absence.

CSME 1410 & 2410

96 Contact hour Course are limited to 2 half days: 1 tardy equals half day absence

CSME 2343 & 2202


1st Offense: Written notification will be given and the student will lose half day off clock time. 2nd Offense: Written notification and the student will lose 5 points off final grade. 3rd offense: Written notification and the student will lose 5 additional points off final grade. 4th (and any additional absences) Written notification and 1 day loss of clock hours. Please Note: In order to fulfill state licensing requirements, and the fact that becoming deficient in clock hours will affect your ability to progress in the program. Students with less than 500 clock hours, will not be allowed to progress in the program.

Academic Honesty Academic honesty is expected from all students, and dishonesty in any form will not be tolerated. Please consult the LSC-PA policies (Section IX, subsection A, in the Faculty Handbook) for consequences of academic dishonesty.
