Student Code of Conduct Statement
It is the responsibility of all registered Lamar State College – Port Arthur students to access, read, understand and abide by all published policies, regulations, and procedures listed in the LSCPA Catalog and Student Handbook.
It is the responsibility of each student to ensure that his or her name is removed from the roll should he or she decide to withdraw from the class. The instructor does, however, reserve the right to drop a student should he or she feel it is necessary.
If a student decides to withdraw, he or she should also verify that the withdrawal is submitted before the final withdrawal date.
The student is also strongly encouraged to retain their copy of the withdrawal form for their records.
The student is required to turn in any equipment or items that belong to the department. Failure to do so may compromise their standing with LSCPA.
State laws permits students to withdraw from no more than six courses during their entire undergraduate career at Texas public colleges or universities. With certain exceptions, all course withdrawals automatically count towards this limit. Details regarding this policy can be found in the LSCPA college catalog.
If you are in a course that is using a specific software, you MUST have the software available to you either on your home computer or you must use the open lab provided in the Gates Library.
Computer failure, loss of flash drive, loss or corruption of documents, and/or lack of internet access are not acceptable excuses for missed assignments, projects, quizzes, or exams. DO NOT wait until the last minute to complete class work or exams.
The following behaviors will result in the student being asked during class time to cease the action and/or leave the classroom: using cell phones, talking, or keying while the instructor is giving instructions or during class discussions; leaving class early without informing the instructor; surfing the internet during lecture; and displaying a rude or negative behavior toward the instructor or other students.
E-mail/Voice Mail Etiquette:
Students must use appropriate e-mail etiquette when corresponding with instructor; for example, complete sentences and a full subject line with your name and course name. Voice mail messages should be clearly spoken identifying students name, course, and any working return phone number.
For each assignment, students must complete the entire lesson (file) on their own. Students are never allowed to use another student’s USB or file, only their own unless there is a team assignment. Students should never lend their file to another student nor should a student have any other students work in their possession for any reason.
If a student uses another student’s files, both students are considered guilty of cheating. If caught cheating, the student will get a “0” on the assignment or project. If a second incidence occurs, both students will be given a final grade of “0” for the course.
1. A student is allowed a maximum of 6 absences and may be automatically dropped from the course on the 7th absence.
2. Three (3) tardies are equivalent to 1 absence.
3. A student grade will drop a full letter grade for every 3 absences.
4. Attendance is defined as actively participating and listening in class.
5. Each class is worth ten points each with students being graded on their level of participation.
