Class begins at the stated start time. Each student is expected to be in the classroom,
seated and ready to begin at the specified class starting time. It is understandable that a
student may be a few minutes late on rare occasions but this should never be a habit.
Habitual late offenders will not only lose points for their in-class grade but will lose the
respect of your classmates and me.
Turn off any electronic device is that might distract you, the instructor, or your
classmates. Cell phones should not be visible to you or to others.
Text messaging, reading newspapers and magazines, playing on your computer and
working on other classes during class time are not permitted.
Academic Integrity
Any student caught in an act of academic dishonesty or cheating will immediately be assigned a
grade of “F” for the entire course.
