that there is no partial credit for participation.
A schedule of activities and requirements are set out in the schedule below.
XIII.
Make up policy:
 Lecture exams may not be made up.
 In the event that an exam is missed, the score on the next exam will be doubled. If the next
exam is the final exam the score of the previous exam will be doubled and substituted for the
missed exam. The same method will be used for missed quizzes.
 Only one quiz or exam (not one of each) may be made up during the semester. The student
must inform the instructor BEFORE the date of the exam or quiz if they are going to miss it.
This may be done by email or phone. If this is not done prior to the date of the exam or quiz
then the student will receive a zero and may not take advantage of the makeup policy.

XVI.
Cheating Policy: Anyone suspected of cheating runs the risk of failing the course. Anyone
caught cheating will automatically fail the assignment. Repeated attempts at cheating will result
in failing the course. Cheating does include plagiarism.
Plagiarism is claiming, indicating, or implying that the ideas, sentences, or words of another writer
are your own; it includes having another writer do work claimed to be your own, copying the work
of another and presenting it as your own, or following the work of another as a guide to ideas and
expression that are then presented as your own. Instructor reserves the right to assign a failing
grade at the end of the semester to any student who is seen cheating throughout the semester.
The instructor may or may not have a prior conference with the student.
XVII.
Grades: All scores will be posted on Blackboard. Your semester grade will be based on your
total points earned at the end of the semester. (Take total earned and divide by total possible to
get percentage)
Lecture exams: 4 X 100 points
Lecture final exam (comprehensive)
Quizzes 8 X 10 points
Lab Assignments: 15 X 15 points

Other Policies and Requirements:

Attendance Policy and Late Arrivals The likelihood of succeeding in this course without your
attendance is minimal. If you exceed more than 2 unplanned absences from classes without
contacting the instructor prior to the scheduled class you may be dropped from the class at the
instructor’s discretion. For late arrivals see Inappropriate Behavior in the Classroom below.

Announcements pertaining to course activities will be made at the beginning of lecture and
posted on Blackboard. The student is responsible for obtaining all information made
available during the meeting periods from other students if they do not attend. All
handouts, when possible, will be posted on Blackboard. It is your responsibility to acquire them.
Laboratory exercises, class presentations and fieldtrips cannot be made up.

Last day to withdraw: Make sure you note the date. It is the student’s responsibility to make
sure they withdraw. AW will not be given in lieu of forgetting to withdraw in time.

Cellular Phones and Pagers Turn them off during lecture and laboratory! If for some reason
you expect an emergency situation to arise, please turn off the ringer and take the call outside of
class. Please be respectful of other students. Cell phones MUST NOT ring or be answered
during laboratories or exams!

Internet Accessibility: All TCC students have access to computers and the Internet in the
General User Computer Labs on all four campuses. Public libraries are an additional location.

Inappropriate Behavior in the Classroom – Increasingly many students display inconsiderate
behavior towards the instructor and other students. This will not be tolerated. Initially the
instructor will speak to the student individually. If a change in behavior is not observed, the
student will be dropped from the class. Such behavior includes disruptive late arrivals
(repeated arrivals more than 7 minutes after a session begins without prior notification is
considered disruptive), excessive talking during lecture, repeated leaving and returning to the
room during lecture, repeated cell phone interruptions, and rudeness towards the instructor.

Changes in this Syllabus The policies and statements contained in this syllabus may be altered,
added to, or deleted at any time by the instructor of the class. This will be done by typed
supplements or amendments given to the student and/or posted on blackboard.

Course Withdrawal: The deadline to withdraw from a course shall not exceed 3/4 the duration of
any class. Contact the Counseling Office at any TCC campus to initiate withdrawal from a course
('W' grade) or to change from Credit to Audit. Check the TCC Academic Calendar for deadlines.
Students who stop participating in the course and fail to withdraw may receive a course grade of
“F,” which may have financial aid consequences for the student.

Communications:
a. Email communications: All TCC students receive a designated “MyTCC” email address (ex:
[email protected]du). All communications to you about TCC and course assignments
will be sent to your MyTCC email address; and you must use MyTCC email to send email to,
and receive email from, the instructor regarding this course.
b. Inclement Weather: TCC rarely closes. If extreme weather conditions or emergency
situations arise, TCC always gives cancellation notices to radio and television stations. This
information is also posted on the TCC website (www.tulsacc.edu).

General Education Goals: General Education courses at TCC ensure that our graduates gain
skills, knowledge, and abilities that comprise a common foundation for their higher education and

a backdrop for their work and personal lives. TCC’s General Education goals are: Critical
Thinking, Effective Communication, Engaged Learning, and Technological Proficiency.

Classroom Etiquette: Open and mutually respectful communication of varied opinions, beliefs,
and perspectives during classroom or online discussion encourages the free exchange of ideas
that is essential to higher learning and to the ability to learn from each other. Use of any
electronic device (including computers, ipads and smartphones) is at the discretion of the
instructor.

Syllabus Changes: Occasionally, changes to the syllabus may be necessary. Students will be
notified of any changes to the syllabus in writing.

Students with Disabilities: TCC provides accommodations for qualifying students in
compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. For information, students may contact the
disabled Student Resource Center, 918-595-7115, or the Resource Center for the Deaf and Hard
of Hearing, 918-595-7428V, 918-595-7434TTY.

Academic Dishonesty: Academic dishonesty (cheating) is defined as the deception of others
about one’s own work or about the work of another. Academic dishonesty or misconduct is not
condoned or tolerated at campuses within the Tulsa Community College system. Tulsa
Community College adopts a policy delegating certain forms of authority for disciplinary action to
the faculty. Such disciplinary actions delegated to the faculty include, but are not limited to, the
dismissal of disrespectful or disorderly students from classes. In the case of academic dishonesty
a faculty member may:
o require the student to redo an assignment or test, or require the student to complete a
substitute assignment or test;
o Record a "zero" for the assignment or test in question;
o Recommend to the student that the student withdraw from the class, or administratively
withdraw the student from the class;
o Record a grade of "F" for the student at the end of the semester.

Faculty may request that disciplinary action be taken against a student at the administrative level
by submitting such request to the Dean of Student Services.

It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that they understand the meaning of plagiarism,
how to avoid it and the consequences of any acts of plagiarism. Not understanding how to
properly cite materials or use citation format does not provide an excuse for academic
dishonesty.

Institutional Statement: Each student is responsible for being aware of the information
contained in the TCC Catalog, the TCC Student Policies & Resources Handbook, and semester
information listed in the class schedule. All information may be viewed on the TCC website:
