The student has a responsibility to attend all classes/labs at the designated time of that class or lab. If a student does not, they will be classified as absent. The following criteria of those classifications are solely those of the instructor of this class.
Defined Tardiness (Lecture/Lab)
Any student that arrives to lecture/lab 5 minutes after the starting time designated in the university catalogue of lecture/lab will be considered tardy. Being late to lab and/or lecture three times will result in one unexcused absence. There will be no exceptions to this policy.
A student will have ten (10) minutes after the designated starting time to be present in lecture/lab. If the student is not present at that time, he/she will be considered absent. The student will be marked as having an unexcused absence from lecture/lab. 3.6 points will be deducted for each unexcused absence for lecture and/or lab; therefore, if a student has three unexcused absences, one letter grade will be deducted from the final course average. Six unexcused absences will result in two letter grades being deducted from the final course average. There will be no exceptions to this policy.
A student will be considered as having an excused absence from class / lab if the following criteria have been established:
If a student if affected by an illness that is not debilitating (i.e. flu, virus infection) which may result in the student missing one or more consecutive class/lab sessions, that student will be marked as unexcused for the amount of days missed unless a doctor’s note is provided. A doctor’s note must have a statement to the affect that you were seen in the office, or you are cleared to return to classes. It does not have to state what you were seen for. There will be no exception to this policy.
CLASSROOM AND LABORATORY BEHAVIOR:
Students should practice professional behavior in the classroom and laboratory equal to what is expected in the work force. Failure to fulfill this expectation will result in the student being expelled from the classroom and/or laboratory.
Cell Phone or other Electronic Devices
Cell phones are not permitted during lecture/lab sessions. Students are required to turn off cell phones and store them in their backpacks or purses. If students are caught with cell phones (rings during lecture/lab, falls out of pocket during lecture/lab, texting during lecture/lab), they will be asked to leave, which will result in an unexcused absence for that time. NOTE:If it is absolutely necessary for a student to leave his/her phone on, the instructors must be made aware of the situation, and circumstances will be considered on an individual basis.
If students are caught with cell phones during lecture/lab testing, they will be asked to leave, receive a zero for the test, and will be subject to possible dismissal from the radiologic sciences program. Students will also be subject to the disciplinary process of the University.
Students are assigned to one class lecture each week, consisting of a 2-hour time slot. Students are expected to come to class on time, stay awake, and participate in the lecture. If it is deemed that students are not engaged in the lecture session, they will be asked to leave and will be penalized an unexcused absence for that session.
Students are assigned to four (4) hours of lab each week. Students are expected to work while in the lab – this means manipulating equipment, positioning classmates, and discussing the material to ensure understanding. If students are deemed to not be putting in the effort to learn the material, they will be asked to leave the lab and will be penalized an unexcused absence for that session.
In accordance with Section 504 of the Federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, Midwestern State University endeavors to make reasonable adjustments in its policies, practices, services, and facilities to ensure equal opportunity for qualified persons with disabilities to participate in all educational programs and activities.
The Office of Disability Support Services (DSS) provides information and assistance, arranges accommodations, and serves as a liaison for students, instructors, and staff. The DSS has assistance devices such as books on tape, recorders, and adaptive software which can be loaned to qualified individuals. A student/employee who seeks accommodations on the basis of disability must register with the Office of Disability Support Services in the Clark Student Center Room 168 or call 940-397-4140 for further information. Documentation of disability from a competent professional is required.
Individuals with grievances related to discrimination or lack of accommodation on the basis of a disability are encouraged to resolve the problem directly with the area involved. If the matter remains unresolved, advice and/or assistance will be provided by the Office of Disability Services for resolution. The grievance procedure may be found in the Student Handbook and Activities Calendar.
