• I want all students to be successful. Cell phones distract from the learning environment. For this reason, they should be turned off and put away out of view upon entering the classroom. If you must carry a phone to class for emergency purposes, please see me in advance. If you bring a laptop or other technological device to class, it should not be used for purposes other than taking class notes or testing. If cell phone activity becomes a problem, the instructor reserves the right for students to place their phones in the basket and will be returned at the end of class.

• RSPT 2305 contains a great deal of information and you must keep up on your reading and studying the material. I will not have the luxury to go back and re-explain concepts each class meeting, therefore it is imperative for each student to outline the sections of reading and learn the content. Please do not hesitate to reach out to the West Campus Tutoring Center or the SSS tutor if needed.

If a student is absent for a regularly scheduled examination, the student may take a makeup examination but the highest grade a student can earn is 75%. Students have one week to make up an examination. All material given in this course will be tested during the four major examinations.

I want you to be successful and your attendance is critical to your success. In order to be fair, there is no distinction between an excused absence and an unexcused absence. A student who plans to pass this course should also plan to regularly attend all lecture sessions. Students chronically late to class or those with excessive absences may be at risk for passing this course. Each student with a tardy/attendance problem will be addressed on an individual basis with the instructor. Calendar

Keep in mind that grades are not given. Grades are EARNED based on student performance. Often the instructor plays no role in the grading process other than recording. Please be careful to note the requirements for earning the grade you desire and act accordingly throughout the semester.

A student, who develops a problem with course policy or the course instructor, should first try to resolve the problem with the instructor of record then the program director. If the problem cannot be resolved at this level, the student should go to the Dean of Health Sciences, the VP of Academic Affairs and the college President in that order.
