Course Policies
Instructor Policies There will be no makeup exams. If you miss any exams, those exams will be given a grade of
zero. Please speak with me if you know in advance that you will be missing any exams.
There will be a comprehensive final exam. All students must take the exam on the scheduled
date and time, and failure to do so will result in a 0 on the final exam.
Every student MUST have a copy of the required textbooks by the second week of class. The
student will still be responsible for any assignments given. Failure to have a text may result in
being dropped from the class.
Failure to follow instructions (written or oral) will result in penalties.
Students should keep a record of their grades/average. Instructor(s) will not average grades for
students. Instructors do not drop grades.
For each assignment, students must complete the entire lesson (file) on their own. Students are
never allowed to use anyone's USB or file but their own, or work together. 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 students will get a 0 on the assignment. If a second
incidence occurs, both students will be given a final grade of F for the course.

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.
No cell phones should be visible or heard during class. Again, you may be asked to leave the
room for the remainder of the class. No blue tooth technology or recording of lectures in any
format (unless approved by the instructor). No charging of cell phones in the classroom.
Attendance Policy Poor attendance is a leading reason for termination from a job in all areas of employment. With
this factor in mind, the instructor monitors student attendance daily. In addition, attendance on a
regular basis is necessary for proper skill development.
The instructor reserves the right to drop any student missing more than two weeks of class (six
MWF classes, four TR classes, and two weeks with no online class or lab participation).
Quizzes may be given at the beginning of the class period. Students coming in to class late will
not be allowed to take quizzes already turned in. A grade of zero will be recorded for the quiz.
Tardiness is not acceptable. Frequent tardiness to class will result in a meeting between the
student and instructor. Continued tardiness will result in a ten-point penalty on the student?s final
course grade.
Assignments are due at the beginning of each class; student assignments coming in late will be
assessed a penalty, even if the student arrives to class late and turns in work.
Students are responsible for completing all assigned homework, including reading assignments,
by the required due dates and for being prepared for each class meeting. This applies even if you
were absent from the previous class meeting.
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.
