ATTENDANCE The College s statement of policy indicates that students must attend ninety percent of total class hours or they will be in violation of the attendance policy. 1. Students not physically attending class during the first ten calendar days from the start of the semester must be dropped from the class for NOT ATTENDING. 2. Students taking an online/internet class must sign in and communicate with the instructor within the first ten calendar days from the start of the semester to indicate attendance in the class. Students not attending class during the first ten calendar days from the start of the semester must be dropped from the class for NOT ATTENDING. 3. Reinstatement requires the signature of the division dean. a. In the event it becomes necessary for a student to withdraw from the course OR if a student stops attending class, it is the student s responsibility to initiate and complete the necessary paperwork. Withdrawing from class may have consequences associated with financial aid and time to completion. b. When a student exceeds the allowed absences, the student is in violation of the attendance policy. The instructor MUST withdrawal the student with a grade of W, WP, or WF depending on the date the student exceeded the allowed absences and the student s progress up to the last date of attendance or c. under extenuating circumstances and at the discretion of the faculty member teaching the class, allow the student to continue in the class and make-up the work. This exception must be documented at the time the allowed absences are exceeded. d. Absences are counted from the first day of class. There are no excused absences. All absences are counted, regardless of the reason for the absence. 4. A student must take the final exam or be excused from the final exam in order to earn a nonwithdrawal grade. 5. Students are expected to be in class on time. Arrival to class after the scheduled start time or leaving class prior to dismissal counts as a tardy. Three tardies and/or early departures are considered as one absence unless stated otherwise. 6. It is the student's responsibility to sign the roll/verify attendance with instructor upon entering the classroom. Failure to sign the roll/verify attendance results in a recorded absence. In the event of tardiness, it is the student s responsibility to insure that attendance is marked. The student is responsible for all material/ announcements presented, whether present or absent. 7. Continuity of classroom and laboratory (which includes clinical experiences) is essential to the student s progress in providing safe and competent patient care. Students are expected to use appropriate judgment for participating in clinical activities. To evaluate the student s knowledge and skills, it is necessary for the student to be present for all clinical experiences. 8. If absence does occur, the designated clinical site, in addition to the Division of Health Sciences Administrative Assistant, must be notified by telephone no later than 30 minutes prior to the start of the clinical experience. The Division of Health Sciences telephone number is A copy of TCL s STATEMENT OF POLICY NUMBER: CLASS ATTENDANCE (WITHDRAWAL) is on file in the Division Office and in the Learning Resources Center. HAZARDOUS WEATHER In case weather conditions are so severe that operation of the College may clearly pose a hardship on students and staff traveling to the College, notification of closing will be made through the following radio and television stations: WYKZ 98.7, WGCO 98.3, WGZO 103.1, WFXH 106.1, WWVV 106.9, WLOW 107.9, WGZR 104.9, WFXH 1130 AM, WLVH 101.1, WSOK 1230 AM, WAEV 97.3, WTOC TV, WTGS TV, WJWJ TV, and WSAV TV. Students, faculty and staff are highly encouraged to opt in to the Emergency Text Message Alert System. ACADEMIC MISCONDUCT There is no tolerance at TCL for academic dishonesty and misconduct. The College expects all students to conduct themselves with dignity and to maintain high standards of responsible citizenship. It is the student s responsibility to address any questions regarding what might constitute academic misconduct to the course instructor for further clarification. The College adheres to the Student Code for the South Carolina Technical College System. Copies of the Student Code and Grievance Procedure are provided in the TCL Student Handbook, the Division Office, and the Learning Resources Center. Health care professionals hold the public trust. Academic misconduct by health science students calls that trust into question and academic integrity is expected. It is a fundamental requirement that any work presented by students will be their own. Examples of academic misconduct include (but are not limited to): 1. copying the work of another student or allowing another student to copy working papers, printed output, electronic files, quizzes, tests, or assignments. 2. completing the work of another student or allowing another student to complete or contribute to working papers, printed output, electronic files, quizzes, tests, or assignments. 3. viewing another student s computer screen during a quiz or examinations. 4. talking or communicating with another student during a test. 5. violating procedures prescribed by the instructor to protect the integrity of a quiz, test, or assignment. 6. plagiarism in any form, including, but not limited to: copying/pasting from a website, textbook, previously submitted student work, or any instructor-prepared class material; obvious violation of any copyright-protected materials. 7. knowingly aiding a person involved in academic misconduct. 8. providing false information to staff and/or faculty. 9. entering an office unaccompanied by faculty or staff. 10. misuse of electronic devices.
