Blinn College Policies


Blinn College policies on civility, class attendance; scholastic integrity; students with disabilities; final grade appeals; and electronic devices as stated in the Blinn College Student Handbook, Faculty Handbook, Blinn College Catalog and specific technical program handbooks. All policies, guidelines and procedures in the Student and Faculty Handbook and the Board and Administrative Policy Manuals are applicable to this course

Civility Statement

Members of the Blinn College community, which includes faculty, staff and students, are expected to act honestly and responsibly in all aspects of campus life. Blinn College holds all members accountable for their actions and words. Therefore, all members should commit themselves to behave in a manner that recognizes personal respect and demonstrates concern for the personal dignity, rights, and freedoms of every member of the College community, including respect for College property and the physical and intellectual property of others.

      Civility Notification Statement. If a student is asked to leave the classroom because of uncivil behavior, the student may not return to that class until he or she arranges a conference with the instructor; it is the student’s responsibility to arrange for this conference. 

      This statement reflects step one in a possible four step process.  The Incivility Protocol is detailed in the Blinn College Student Handbook.

Attendance Policy

The College District believes that class attendance is essential for student success; therefore, students are required to promptly and regularly attend all their classes. A record of attendance will be maintained from the first day of classes and/or the first day the student’s name appears on the roster through final examinations. If a student has one week’s worth of unexcused absences during the semester, he or she will be sent an e-mail by the College District requiring the student to contact his or her instructor and schedule a conference immediately to discuss his/her attendance issues. Should the student accumulate two weeks’ worth of unexcused absences, he or she will be administratively withdrawn from class.

There are four forms of excused absences recognized by the institution:

  1. observance of religious holy days—The student should notify his or her instructor(s) not later than the 15th day of the semester concerning the specific date(s) that the student will be absent for any religious holy day(s);
  2. representing the College District at an official institutional function;
  3. high school dual credit students representing the independent school district at an official institutional function; and
  4. military service.

Other absences may be considered excused at the discretion of the faculty member with appropriate documentation.  A student enrolled in a developmental course is subject to College District-mandated attendance policies. Failure to attend developmental classes shall result in removal from the course as defined by the College District.

It is the student’s responsibility to officially drop a class he or she is no longer attending.  To officially drop a class the student must obtain the class withdrawal form from Enrollment Services, complete the class withdrawal form, secure the required signatures, and return the completed form to Enrollment Services. The last day to drop with a Q is according to the Academic Calendar.

Scholastic Integrity

Blinn College does not tolerate cheating, plagiarism, or any other act of dishonesty with regard to the course in which you are enrolled.  The following text defines the faculty member’s responsibility with regard to the scholastic integrity expectation for this and all courses at Blinn College.

It is the responsibility of faculty members to maintain scholastic integrity at the College District by refusing to tolerate any form of scholastic dishonesty.  Adequate control of test materials, strict supervision during testing, and other preventive measures should be utilized, as necessary, to prevent cheating or plagiarism.  If there is compelling evidence that a student is involved in cheating or plagiarism, the instructor should assume responsibility and address the infraction.  Likewise, any student accused of scholastic dishonesty is entitled to due process as outlined in Blinn College Board Policy FLB (Local).  The Scholastic Integrity Policy is located in the Blinn College Student Handbook. In a case of scholastic dishonesty, it is critical that written documentation be maintained at each level throughout the process.

Students with Disabilities

Blinn College is dedicated to providing the least restrictive learning environment for all students. Support services for students with documented disabilities are provided on an individual basis, upon request. Requests for services should be made directly to the Office of Special Populations serving the campus of your choice.  For the Bryan campus, the Office of Special Populations (Administration Building) can be reached at (979)209-7251.  The Brenham, Sealy and Schulenburg campuses are served by the Office of Special Populations on the Brenham campus (Administration Building Room 104) and can be reached at (979)830-4157.  Additional information can be found at www.blinn.edu/disability/index.html.

Final Grade Appeal

If a student wishes to appeal a final grade in a course, Blinn College Board Policy FLDB (Local), Course Grade Complaints, outlines the timeline for the appeal and the four steps in the appeal.  This policy is located in the Blinn College Student Handbook.

Electronic Devices

All the functions of all personal electronic devices designed for communication and/or entertainment (cell phones, pagers, beepers, iPods, and similar devices) must be turned off and kept out of sight in all College District classrooms and associated laboratories.  Any noncompliance with this policy shall be addressed in accordance with the College District civility policy (administrative policy).  This information is contained in Blinn College Board Policy FLB (Local).

Course Policies


Lecture Exams: There will be three lecture exams, which will each consist of 50 multiple choice questions at 2 points each.  Make-up lecture exams are only offered to students with an excused absence.  To arrange for a make-up exam see me during the first class period following your absence (or prior to your absence if possible).  Note the make-up exam may be harder than the original exam.  An unexcused absence from an exam will result in a grade of zero.

Final Exam:  The Final Exam is comprehensive, scantron, 100 questions at 2 points each.  Make-up final exam is only offered to students with an excused absence.  To arrange for a make-up final exam see me as soon possible before the scheduled final exam time.  Note the make-up final exam may be harder than the original exam.  An unexcused absence from an exam will result in a grade of zero.

Laboratory Exams:  There will be four lab exams, which will each consist of 25 multiple choice questions at 4 points each.  Make-up lab exams will only be given in extreme situations and may be harder than the original exam.  An unexcused absence from an exam will result in a grade of zero.

           Important Note:  NO EXAMS will be dropped.  However, there will be extra credit questions available, each worth 1 point, on each exam.

Activities:  May include, but are not limited to, lab reports and LearnSmart assignments (from Connect Online access).  For Connect Online access, go to http://connect.mcgraw-hill.com/class/lee303 and follow the directions to register.

Quizzes:  Periodic quizzes will cover recent topics and assigned readings from the lecture and the laboratory.  Make-up quizzes are only offered to students with an excused absence.  To arrange for a make-up exam see me during the first class period following your absence (or prior to your absence if possible).  An unexcused absence from a quiz will result in a grade of zero.

eCampus:  I will be using eCampus as a supplement to this class.  I will post class PowerPoints, test study guides, etc.  PowerPoints are NOT a substitute for the text!!  They are a guide for lecture.  To log in, go to http://ecampus.blinn.edu and follow the directions.

Attendance Policy Reminder:  Missing lecture, lab or both will count as one absence.  For classes that meet twice a week during the Fall semester two absences counts as one week's absence.  Students accumulating two week’s worth of absences (four unexcused absences) will be dropped.

Problem Resolution: If you have a complaint about your class, you should first request a conference with your instructor to try and resolve the problems or issues. If the problems or issues cannot be resolved at the instructor level, you should request a conference with the Division Chair, Mr. Dwight Bohlmeyer, Science 241, dbohlmeyer@blinn.edu.

Dropping:  If a student chooses to drop the course, it is that student’s responsibility to complete a drop order at the Office of Admissions and Records.  Failure to do so could result in a grade of F in the course. 

The last day to drop with a “Q” is Friday, November 15, 2013.

Eating and Drinking:  Eating and drinking are not allowed in classrooms or laboratories.

Safety is always important.  We will use expensive equipment and preserved specimens.  BE AWARE of those around you.  If you are pregnant, or become pregnant during the semester, please let me know.  Formaldehyde is used in the preservation of specimens and has been shown to be a teratogen (an agent that disturbs the development of an embryo or fetus).

Tips for Success:  This is a challenging class!!  There will be a lot of information to try to understand in a short amount of time.  1)  Read the book before coming to class.  2) Work the LearnSmart  assignments before coming to class 2) Print the PowerPoints and bring them to class.  3) Work the labs.  4) Use as many reviews as possible, including online study guides, study groups, etc.  5) Ask questions.  6) Study early and regularly (because of the amount of information covered, it is impossible to cram everything into your brain a night or two before an exam).
