Attendance Policy: Students are expected to be punctual and attend all classes for which they are registered. A record of attendance is kept for every scheduled class period. Students anticipating an absence or tardiness should contact the instructor in advance or provide notification as soon as possible. It is the responsibility of the student to account for instructional time missed. If the student does not attend classes, submit assignments, or, when applicable, contact instructors in a timely manner (either in person or by telephone), a failing grade(s) may be issued. B. No Show Policy: A “no show” is a student whose name appears on the course roster but who fails to have his or her attendance verified the first week of class. In all courses, regardless of the method of delivery (face-to-face, hybrid, or online), faculty will conduct a graded activity the first week of class in order to verify student attendance. This graded activity will document the student’s intent to take the course. Any student not completing the graded activity will be reported as a “no-show” regardless of her or her attendance in the classroom. Any student reported as a “no show” by an instructor will be administratively withdrawn from the course and will show no enrollment history. C. Make-Up Policy: Students who miss an examination may make up the examination if they can provide a documented, verifiable, valid excuse. Make-up exams must be completed within 2 class days of the scheduled exam. Valid excuses are at the discretion of the instructor and may include serious illness, death in the family, etc. Personal travel is not a valid excuse. Only one make up exam will be allowed without penalty, additional make up exams will be penalized 10% of the total available points for that exam. Students who are more than 15 minutes late to an exam will not be admitted to the classroom and will be excluded from the exam; a make-up will NOT be allowed. D. Homework Policy: Homework is assigned through Mastering Chemistry and is available on-line for each lecture unit until 1:00 am the date indicated on the calendar. Assigned homework must be completed and turned in by the due date and time. Students may collaborate on homework problems but are individually responsible for completion, submission, and content. Late submissions will not be accepted. E. Withdrawal Policy: Students may withdraw themselves from any or all classes using BannerWeb per the college calendar. No withdrawals will be issued after the “W” period. Grades of A, B, C, D, F will be issued at the end of the term. F. Classroom Etiquette Policy: Students are expected to conform to the following rules of classroom behavior: a. Students arriving more than 15 minutes late will not be admitted to the classroom. b. Students disrupting the class, as determined by the instructor, will be asked to leave. c. Electronic devices such as cellular phones, pagers etc., with audible ringers will not be tolerated in the classroom. Texting or social networking activities during class will not be tolerated. Use of such devices during examinations will be considered cheating and will result in disciplinary action. d. All forms of academic dishonesty including, but not limited to, cheating on a test, plagiarism, collusion, and falsification of information will be cause for discipline. Cheating on a test is defined to the following: i. Using a cell phone or other electronic communications device during a test. ii. Copying from another student’s test paper. iii. Using materials during a test not authorized by the person giving the test. iv. Collaborating with any other person during a test without permission. v.

Success Center Hours Monday-Thursday: 9:00 am-7:00 pm Friday: 9:00 am – 2:00 pm Saturday: Closed Sunday: Closed K. Success Centers are key components of the CTC Learning Support Unit and are friendly, student-oriented places to work and learn. Their mission is to support student learning and academic success by providing free tutoring, workshops, and a wide variety of innovative, easily accessible learning resources and instructional services for CTC students and their teachers. Students experiencing difficulty with an assignment or in a course are encouraged to visit the Centers and request services; teachers and counselors can also identify and formally refer students who need academic support. L. TEAMS Early Alert System Chattahoochee Technical College has implemented an early alert system to help students be successful in their academic endeavors. The early alert system, named TEAMS, will allow instructors to submit an alert about a student that is struggling academically, is inconsistent with attendance, or has a personal hardship that is impeding their success. This alert serves as an indicator that a student may need some assistance to be successful with completing their course of study. This help may be in the form of information, campus resources or a community resource referral. Instructors can submit an alert for these three areas of concern: Attendance Issues, Academic Preparedness, or Personal Hardships. Alerts are not punitive and do not effect students’ grades or standing within a given course. Should you have any questions about the TEAMS alert system, please refer them to the college Student Navigator, Ebony Gammon via email at, A. Advisement Chattahoochee Technical College’s Qualify Enhancement Plan (QEP) is a vital part of CTC’s reaffirmation of accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC). CTC’s QEP is eMAP: An Educational Master Advising Plan. eMAP formalizes academic advisement to support student attainment of educational and career goals. To date, it involves most students in business and technical programs. B. EEOC Statement: As set forth in its student catalog, Chattahoochee Technical College does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, national or ethnic origin, gender, religion, disability, age, political affiliation or belief, genetic information, veteran status, or citizenship status (except in those special circumstances permitted or mandated by law).
