Students are responsible for being aware of all policies,
procedures, rules, and regulations AND students' responsibilities contained
within the current editions of the: Paul D. Camp Community College Catalog,
Class (Semester) Schedule, and Student Handbook.
- The student is expected to attend all class and laboratory sessions.
- Tardiness and leaving prior to dismissal from class and laboratory
sessions is not acceptable and could result in penalties that could effect your final
- Quizzes given at the beginning or ending of class and missed because of
the student's tardiness or early exit from the class, cannot be taken as a makeup quiz.
- If the student has to miss a class, he/she is responsible for the
material and announcements covered.
- Absences in excess of 20% of the scheduled instructional time for a
course is defined as unsatisfactory progress and may result in administrative withdrawal
or failure in the course.
Cellular Phones, iPods, and any other portable
- Because of inappropriate use of cell phones
and other portable electronic equipment and their disruption of the educational process in the classroom
it is requested that all of the above be turned off during the
lecture and laboratory periods. We realize that emergencies do occur, and
all students can be contacted by having emergency calls placed to the
college switchboard and a college representative will come to the classroom
and contact the student. (Franklin - 757.569.6700, Suffolk - 757.925.6300,
and Smithfield - 757.925.6340). If there is a legitimate reason for having
cell phones, etc. turned on during class, i.e. after 7 pm when nobody
is at the switchboard, then please make sure you notify the instructor. The
use of laptop computers for taking notes is allowed as long as that is the
only function for which it is being use. Failure to follow this
directive may result in removal from or permanent withdrawal from the class.
The student will be allowed to make up a missed lecture or lab test ONLY
if the instructor is informed of the absence on or prior to the day the test is given.
Documentary evidence may be required to validate any excuse for missed tests. Makeup tests
must be taken within seven days after the absence, otherwise a zero grade will be issued
for the test. Note: Due to their very nature some laboratory tests may not be made up. If
the instructor is not notified, the student will receive a grade of "0" for the
- The time element will not allow the instructor to cover in lecture every
detail in the assigned reading, therefore it is the student's responsibility for knowing
all the information contained in the textbook reading assignments for tests.
- Outside readings and written papers are required and will be assigned by
the instructor and will require the use of the library and World Wide Web resources.
Student & Classroom Behavior
Students are expected to act in a civil manner and respect the rights
and opinions of other students and the instructor. Student/instructor interaction is a
function of the learning experience and should be approached in a manner conducive to the
learning process. Disruptive behavior in class and lab will not be tolerated and will
result in administrative withdrawal from class.
Extra Credit Projects
- NO extra credit projects will be considered.
- All written work is to be original and performed by
the student. This includes all tests, quizzes, laboratory reports, and any
other written work assigned by the instructor. Collaborative work is NOT acceptable unless assigned by the
instructor. (Also see Cheating and/or Plagiarism Policy below.)
Cheating and/or Plagiarism Policy
- Any evidence of cheating on a test will result in the student receiving a
"0" for the test. The instructor will be the final authority on whether cheating
or plagiarism has occurred. Plagiarism is defined as
"the appropriation or imitation of the language, ideas and thoughts of
another author and the representation of them as one's original work".
(The Random House College Dictionary, Revised Edition. 1984). One must be
particularly careful of plagiarism when doing writing assignments. Make sure that your answers are in your own words. If you are going
to copy information to support your answer then cite your source. If you are
unsure about how to do citations or plagiarism in general, then consult
resources such as The Scott, Foresman Handbook for Writers.
- This course may require a few field trips.

ACT (ADA) regulations, adjustments to courses have been addressed and are on
