sidebar menu toggle button Maintaining a Positive Learning Environment

Members of the university community are responsible for modeling appropriate classroom behavior by limiting outside influences such as cell phones, pagers, children, guests, animals (other than approved service animals), etc., that could otherwise compromise the learning environment.

In order to evaluate student learning, grades indicate achievement of course objectives and are assigned by faculty to individual students. Student behaviors such as class attendance, class participation, completion of all assignments, and achievement of passing marks on all graded activities are the foundation for success of the student.

Class Cancellation Policy

Class will be cancelled if the instructor is not present 15 minutes after the start time for class, unless the instructor has notified the students prior to class. A cancellation under these circumstances will not result in the student being marked as absent.
