The Auto Collision Department or acting Instructor reserves the right to substitute or rearrange lecture topics, lab projects, homework, tests, or assignments based on the needs of the class or requirements to meet course outcomes and objectives.
 

 

 

Instructor Participation Policy:

A student is expected to attend and participate during the scheduled period of instruction (lecture and lab).  This begins with the first scheduled class day of the term.  A student deemed  a non-participant for more than 10% ( 3.0 hours) of the lecture or 10% ( 9.0 hours) of the lab periods, regardless of grades earned on assignments, will have to repeat the course.

A student is considered tardy up to 15 minutes into the scheduled lecture or lab, and thereafter will be considered a non-participant for that period of instruction.

 

Course Policies: 
 
Safety Procedures
 
Students are required to participate in a safety lecture prior to performing in the laboratory portion of the course. A written test will be given to each participating student covering the presented safety materials. Students must complete the safety test with 100% accuracy prior to receiving lab assignments.
 
All lecture and laboratory safety rules and regulations will be followed in every detail. Failure to comply with this policy will result in dismissal from class until further notice.
 
 

 

Acceptance Attire
 
  •  NIOSH approved clear safety glasses will be worn at all times

  • Smoking is prohibited within 20 feet of a building, when permitted
  • Smoking is prohibited within the fenced area surrounding the ACM and CAT Labs.
  • The consumption of drinks, candy and other food items is restricted to lounge areas
  • Eating or drinking in laboratories are hazardous because of the toxic nature of lab materials being handled
  • No horseplay at any time
  • Be responsible – Be a professional
 
Late Work/Test Policies
 
All students are required to be present for class. However, unexpected circumstances will occur. If a student has an excused absence, death or illness in the immediate family, the student must notify the instructor of record immediately. If a test is missed, the instructor has to give permission for make up. The missed test must be made up before the next scheduled period of instruction.
 
An excused absence only allows for make up of missed assignments or test. The absence is recorded.
 
Assignments are due at the beginning of class of the set due date. Late assignments will not be accepted and a grade of “zero” will be earned for said assignment. Students that have notified the instructor prior to the absence may be considered excused.
 
Pop tests
  Can be given at any time by the instructor and are not make up items.

 
Exemptions

Students can be exempted from a final exam if:
 
  1. Lecture average is 90 or above
  2. Attendance is perfect
  3. Assignments are completed and turned in
  4. Projects are complete

 

Cell Phone Policy
 
Cell phones may be brought into the classroom or lab as they are a part of our society.  It is common courtesy to put devices such as cell phones and laptops away during presentations and discussions as alerts and notifications from devices can distract you and others. So, the rule is to turn off cell phones during class time and put them away. Do not use a lap top in class unless you use it to take notes. If there is a need to use a device in the classroom, communicate this to your instructor so a discussion can occur and an understanding reached.
Phones and earphones may be used in the lab for music only.  Phones must be off during demonstrations or class discussions. 
 
Anyone failing to adhere to this policy will be dismissed from class and issued a non-participation grade (absence) for that period of instruction.
 
Departmental Awards Ceremony/Cleanup Policy
 
Each student is expected to participate in the awards ceremony and cleanup activities once the date has been identified.
 
Students with unexpected circumstances can be excused by the department chair only.
 

TSTC school calendar identifies the end of the semester. Student break begins the day after.
