Instructor’s Policies A Attendance ­ You are expected to attend every scheduled class meeting. Attendance will be monitored.  The  instructor will keep a record of each student’s attendance. Absences totaling six class hours may subject the  student to withdrawal from the course. Student attendance records will be considered and reported to the  Office of Admissions and Records when the instructor initiates a drop action. Chronic tardiness will not be tolerated.  Please plan on staying in class for the entire scheduled time. If you  must leave early for any reason, please inform me beforehand so that I am aware of it.  Please do not walk  away from a lecture in progress. B Withdrawal ­ The student is responsible for dropping the course by the deadline date to automatically receive a grade of “W”.  After the student drop deadline, the student will be dropped with a grade of “F”. If, for  whatever reason, you can no longer continue in the course, it is your full responsibility to withdraw from the  course. C Late Work – Assignments must completed, submitted, or turned in by the scheduled due date, unless you  have an excused absence that was previously arranged with the instructor.  The most common excused  absence is for personal illness, and requires a written dr’s statement that you were not able to attend class on  that day. If a special circumstance arises please let me know right away, and we can discuss your options on  an individual basis. Any student not turning in an assignment by scheduled due date will receive a zero. DBusiness Laboratory ­ The Business Lab (A2320) is designed to allow the student to work independently in  solving computerized accounting problems.  Laboratory assistants are available to assist the student in  understanding accounting concepts and procedures, and software operation.  Each student is required and  must complete a minimum of thirty­two (32) hours in the lab during the semester.  An orientation to the  lab early in the semester will discuss lab policies and procedures, as well as hours of operation. Solutions to  some homework assignments are available in the lab but can only be used to check completed homework.  If  any student has difficulty completing an assignment, they may seek assistance from lab personnel or the  instructor.   E Instructional Methodology ­ The instructional methodology will primarily be by the lecture method with  chalkboard and overhead demonstrations.  Class time will also be utilized for discussion and illustration of  chapter exercises.   F Examinations ­ Exams must be taken when scheduled, unless you have an excused absence and has been  previously arranged with the instructor.  Anyone not taking an exam when scheduled will receive a zero.  You are expected to do your own work on the exam and have the responsibility of protecting your own work from  copying.  The most common excused absence is for personal illness, and requires a written doctor’s statement 2 that you were not able to attend class on that day.  If a special circumstance arises please let me know right  away, and we can discuss your options on an individual basis.  I will not allow programmable calculators or cell phones during an exam. I will be checking your  calculator during an exam. F. Examinations – continued Students are prohibited from:  Talking during an exam or quiz;  Copying from another student's paper;  Allowing someone to copy from one's paper;  Looking at another student's paper during an exam or quiz; and  Referring to notes during an exam or quiz. Anyone caught cheating will receive zero credit and will be subject to the related EPCC policy. No note cards or cheat sheets are allowed during an exam or a class quiz.  No exam grade will be dropped.     G Quizzes – Chapter quizzes are to be taken online within the prescribed time frame.  You will be given 3  attempts on each quiz.  Only the last attempt will be counted towards your grade.  There are no make­ups for  missed quizzes.   H Problems – All chapter problems must be completed and submitted by using CONNECT on Blackboard.   Chapter problems may be re­worked as many times as a student wishes to attempt so long as the  problems are completed and submitted before the scheduled due date.  No credit or points will be allowed  for a chapter problem after the scheduled due date (no exceptions).  The problems assigned are for your  benefit in practicing the principles and concepts discussed during class lectures.  Assignments can be checked while logged in. Only after you SUBMIT your answers, are they considered to be final.  You get 6 attempts  to submit your homework.  You are encouraged to do all the questions at one time and then submit.  You will  be expected to read chapters assigned before coming to class.  You will be called upon to give answers to any  work assigned.  In accounting, learning takes place during completion of homework.  Homework is the key to being successful in class. I Learning Activities  Schedule at least six to eight hours per week for studying accounting.  Review the course objectives for each chapter to find out what information you must know.  Read carefully the assigned textbook material making explanatory notes as needed.  Complete end­of­chapter questions and exercises.  Complete and turn in credit assignments.  Arrive to class on time, attend class regularly, and complete in­class assignments.  Take notes on the major points of the lecture.  Take textbook quizzes and tests to prepare you for the exams.  Study with friends or other people in the class. 3 L Scholastic Dishonesty  ­ The El Paso Community College prides itself on its standards of academic  excellence.  In all matters of intellectual pursuit, EPCC faculty and students must strive to achieve based on  the quality produced by the individual.  In the classroom and all other academic activities, students are  expected to uphold the highest standards of academic integrity.  Any form of scholastic dishonesty is an  affront to the pursuit of knowledge and jeopardizes the quality of the degree awarded to all graduates of  EPCC. Any student who commits an act of scholastic dishonesty is subject to discipline. Scholastic dishonesty includes, but is not limited to: 1 cheating,  2 plagiarism, 3 collusion, 4    the submission for credit of any work or materials that are attributable in whole or in part to another  person, 5    taking an examination for another person, 6 any act designed to give unfair advantage to a student, or 7 the attempt to commit such acts. Proven violations may result in sanctions ranging from disciplinary probation, to a failing   grade on any work in question, to a failing grade in the course, to suspension or dismissal,    among others. All assignments, unless specifically designated as a group project, must be done on an individual basis.  Also,  do not submit assignments completed by others, either in previous semesters, or by other members of the  class in this semester.  I have instituted a zero­tolerance policy on these two issues. M Disabled Student Services ­ EPCC offers a variety of services to persons with documented sensory, mental,  physical, or temporary disabling conditions to promote success in classes.  If you have a disability and believe you may need services, you are encouraged to contact the Center for Students with Disabilities to discuss your needs with a counselor.  All discussions and documentation are kept confidential.  Offices located:  VV Rm.  C­112 (831­2426; TM Rm. 1400 (831­5808); RG Rm. B­201 (831­4198); NWC Rm. M­54 (831­8815); and  MDP Rm. A­125 (831­7024). N Disruptive Acts and Student Code of Conduct ­The obstruction or disruption of any teaching, research,  administrative, disciplinary, public service or other authorized activity on campus, or on property owned or  controlled by the College is prohibited and will subject the student or group of students to disciplinary action.  The Student Code of Conduct is the guide for all class rules. Disruptive acts include use of cell phones and  bringing children to class. Please refer to the Student Code of Conduct in the EPCC Catalog for more  information on your rights and responsibilities.
