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 Faculty Handbook, Blinn College Catalog and specific technical program handbooks. All policies, guidelines and procedures in the Faculty Handbook, the Board Policy and Administrative Procedure 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 the student 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 Administrative Procedure Manual.

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. The faculty shall require students to regularly attend class and shall keep a record of attendance 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 or 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 Should the student accumulate two weeks’ worth of unexcused absences, he or she will be administratively withdrawn from class.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-If a student is asked by the College District to be an official representative of the College District at any function approved by the institution, the student shall be excused from any classes missed and must be allowed to complete all work without penalty for that absence(s) in a timely manner as directed by the faculty member;
  3. a high school student representing the independent school district at an official institutional function- If a high school student is asked by the independent school district to be an official representative of the school district at any function approved by the institution, the student shall be excused from any class missed and must be allowed to complete all work without penalty for the absence(s) in a timely manner as directed by the faculty member; and
  4. military service- If a student can prove he or she is serving on active duty to which he or she is called with the Armed Forces of the United States, the student shall be excused from attending classes and allowed to complete an assignment or take and examination from which the student is excused within a reasonable time after the absence.

Other absences may be excused at the discretion of the faculty member.  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. Board Policy FC (LOCAL)

It is the student’s responsibility to officially drop a class he or she is no longer attending.  More information on drop limits and withdrawing can be found in the Blinn College Catalog. 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. In a case of scholastic dishonesty, it is critical that written documentation be maintained at each level throughout the process.

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 to resolve the allegation as outlined in Blinn College Board Policy FLDB (Local).  The Scholastic Integrity Policy is located in the Blinn College Catalog.

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 and steps for appeal.  This policy is located in the Blinn College Catalog.

Electronic Devices

Cellular telephones and beepers/pagers must be disengaged while the student is in the Blinn College Library or any classroom/lab, unless otherwise instructed. Any noncompliance with this policy shall be addressed in accordance with the Blinn College Administrative Procedure Manual- Incivility Protocol.

Course Policies


No late assignments accepted. 

Excuse notes must be provided within two class periods (one week) or will be counted as an unexcused absence. 

If you attend class you are expected to participate and will not sit out without a doctor's note. 

 

Class begins on time!  After 5 minutes the student is counted absent, that is one point off of your final grade and will lose half of the attendance points for the day.  After ten minutes, the student is considered absent and loses all attendance points for the day. 

Administrative Withdrawal

Students wishing to appeal an administrative withdrawal should consult their instructor first.  Students that feel the need to pursue the appeal process further need to do the following.  To initiate an appeal, please follow the process detailed in steps 1 – 3.  It is the student’s responsibility to initiate each step of the appeals process.  Students have three class days from the date of notification to initiate, by @buc.blinn.edu e-mail, to the department head, Dr. Shelly Peacock  and complete the process.

  1. Prepare a letter of appeal.  This letter must include your name, student identification number, course number, section number, and a description of any extenuating circumstances along with the necessary documentation for all absences.
  2. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Peacock to discuss the administrative withdrawal.  You must bring the letter of appeal to this meeting.
