emergency occasions with approval of the instructor.

lowered by 2 points for every class period late unless otherwise designated by instructor.

Attendance Policy:
Regular attendance is essential in a class of this nature as daily discussions, assignments, etc. build
upon each other. Each absence makes it more difficult to keep up with assignments, etc. More
than three absences is considered excessive. The student is responsible for consulting with the
instructor regarding any absences and the makeup work required.
IF THE STUDENT DOES NOT OFFICIALLY WITHDRAW AND IS CONSISTENTLY
ABSENT FROM CLASS, THE STUDENT WILL RECEIVE A FAILING GRADE.
Availability of Instructor:
The instructor will be available for tutoring sessions during office hours or by appointment. All
students are encouraged to ask for assistance when necessary.
Academic Accommodation for Students with Disabilities:
TCC provides a range of services to allow persons with disabilities to participate in educational
programs. The responsibility for acquiring these services rests with the student. For information,
contact the campus counseling and testing office.
Classroom Conduct:
Please be respectful and refrain from talking when instructor or classmate is speaking. Students
who engage in disruptive behavior in the classroom will be asked to leave. Please turn off and put
away all cell phones and electronic devices during class time. Any phones or electronic devices used
during class will be turned over to the instructor for the remaining class period. If there is an emergency
situation, please advise the instructor.
