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% (      days) of the lecture or 10% (      days) 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.
 
A sum of two tardies is equivalent to one non- participation period.

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 who prior contacted the instructor may be considered excused.
Pop Test

A.     Lecture average is 90 or above
B.     Attendance is perfect
C.     Assignments are completed and turned in
D.     Projects are complete
Cell Phone Policy
 
Cell phones may not be brought into the classroom or lab as they are unsafe and disruptive to the environment.
 
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.
