Course Policies
Instructor Policies
Attendance Policy All classes will be conducted online beginning on March 23, 2020 until further notice.

Research has shown a cause and effect relationship between attendance and college success. A student with three absences may be dropped from class.
1. Attendance at all scheduled classes is expected.
2. A student who is absent from class for 3 days, without notification to faculty, may be withdrawn from the program by the program director.
3. Students on campus but not in class are considered absent.
4. Late arrival to class is disruptive. Arriving seven minutes after the scheduled start of class constitutes a tardy. Leaving early is the same as a tardy. Three tardies for class will equate to one day absent. Students who consistently arrive late (2 or more consecutive times) will be counseled and a plan of corrective action determined.
5. It is the students responsibility to notify the instructor prior to any absence.
6. Students who arrive after the exam starts but before it ends, may take the test without penalty. They are given no additional time.
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.
Facility Policies
  1. No food or tobacco products are allowed in the classroom.

  2. Only students enrolled in the course are allowed in the classroom, except by special instructor permission.

  3. Use of electronic devices is prohibited.
