There is a direct correlation between attendance and your grade. The fewer days missed, the higher
your grade. In the above grading scale, attendance is not considered as part of your grade, but you
will miss instructor and class discussions that may help you understand material that is important.
Please try to attend regularly and on time, if you know you will be absent, please let the instructor
know immediately. Any work missed is your responsibility to make up and the instructor will not
remind you of missed work. Late assignments will be accepted but there will be a 10% penalty for
each week the assignment is late. After 3 weeks, the assignment will no longer be accepted.
BC Attendance Policy: Students who have been absent from a class should notify the instructor of
the reason for the absence. Absence in no way relieve students of responsibility for work missed.
Excessive absences may result in the student being dropped from the course.
Instructors may drop a student from a course when absences number the equivalent of two weeks of
class recorded from the first day of instruction. If particular circumstances warrant and can be
justified academically, faculty members may drop students after less than two weeks of absences.
Faculty members may give consideration to excusing students from classes to participate in
scheduled college activities (athletics, music, field trips, etc.). The student must make arrangements
in advance to make up the work to be missed.
Class Rules:
1. Attend class promptly as required by your schedule.
2. Be prepared before you come to class, including having assignments read and homework
3. Take notes in class to help remind you of topics discussed when reviewing chapter tests.
4. The student is on his or her honor. This means cheating is unacceptable and will not be
tolerated. Anyone found cheating in this course will be referred to the Dean of Students.
5. It is your responsibility to drop the course if you stop attending – not the instructor’s.
6. If you feel you are not getting what you expect or deserve from the instructor, talk to him. It
will not affect your grade!
