Course Attendance: Students are expected to attend all class sessions and are responsible for class work, homework, lecture notes, reading assignments, etc., regardless if you are present or not. Record keeping for attendance purposes will begin the first day the class meets. Students may not miss more than twice the number of days the class meets per week. After exceeding this limit, the instructor may take extenuating circumstances (e.g. withdrawing student from course). There is no such thing as an EXCUSED ABSENCE. On certain occasions, circumstances may arise such as illness, personal issues, or transportation problems that prevent you from attending class. In such cases, the maximum number of absences (regardless of the reason) is still twice the number of meeting times per week. If a student must be absent, it is the student’s responsibility to notify the instructor as quickly as possible of the absence and complete missed assignments as a result of the absence at the instructor’s discretion. For classes that meet twice a week, you are allowed no more than 4 absences. It is the student’s responsibility to keep track of the number of classes missed. If the number of classes missed exceeds the allowed absences, the student will be dropped from the class and will receive a “W” or “WF” as the final grade based upon the grade status as of the last class attendance. Late arrivals disrupt class and interfere with student learning. To eliminate this, students should not be late for class or leave before class has been dismissed. If you arrive after attendance has been taken, you will be marked absent. It is your responsibility to see the instructor after class on the day of the late arrival to have your absence changed to a tardy. Three tardies is equivalent to one absence. Please note the following: You are responsible for all material and announcements presented, whether you are present or absent.Course Requirements: Each student is required to transcribe a minimum of twice a week. All tests are to be transcribed in a CRP lab and shall be monitored and timed by an intuitional supervisor. When tests are completed using the computer, all copies (including computer hard drive and any storage media) of the tests shall be deleted immediately in order to maintain test integrity. Testing shall be at incremental speeds on unfamiliar material. The same test shall not be dictated more than once a week every six (6) months to the same student.
