Blinn College Policies


All policies, guidelines, and procedures in the Blinn College Catalog, Blinn College Board Policies, and the Blinn College Administrative Procedures Manual are applicable to this course.

Notice of any action taken under these protocol and procedures, by Blinn College or its employees, may be delivered by hand, through the U.S. Postal Service, or electronically to the student’s BlinnBuc e-mail account. Notice shall be deemed received upon actual receipt, on deposit in the U.S. Mail, or upon entering the information processing system used by Blinn College for BlinnBuc e-mail accounts, whichever first occurs.

Civility Statement

Blinn College holds all members of the college community, which includes students, faculty, and staff accountable for their actions and words. Therefore, all members should commit themselves to behave in a manner that respects and demonstrates concern for the dignity, rights, and freedoms of others, including respect for the physical and intellectual property of all members of the college community.

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 within two school days of being notified of the suspension from class. This statement reflects step one of three possible steps in the incivility process.  The Incivility Protocol is detailed in the Blinn College Catalog and in Blinn College Board Policy FLB (LOCAL).

Attendance Policy

Class attendance is essential for student success; therefore, students are required to promptly and regularly attend all classes. A record of attendance is maintained from the first day of classes and/or the first day the student’s name appears on the roster through final examinations. Students who accrue one week’s worth of absences during the semester will be sent an e-mail through their Buc account requiring them to contact their instructor and immediately schedule a conference to discuss their attendance issues. Students who accumulate two weeks’ worth of unexcused absences, may be administratively withdrawn from class. There are four forms of excused absences recognized by the institution:

  1. Observance of religious holy days - Students should notify their instructor(s) no later than the 15th day of the semester concerning the specific date(s) for absences for any religious holy day(s);
  2. Representing the College District at an official institutional function;
  3. Dual credit students representing the high school or independent school district at an official institutional function; and
  4. Military service.

Other circumstances may be considered an excused absence at the discretion of the faculty member with appropriate documentation. College District-mandated attendance policy applies to all coursework; including coursework in developmental/ non-credit courses. Failure to attend developmental classes will also 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. Students interested in dropping a course or withdrawing from school may do so by logging into myBlinn and clicking on the “My Records” tab, clicking on “add or drop classes” under registration tools, and  then selecting the current registration term and “webdrop” from the action drop down menu. The final step is scrolling to the bottom of the page and clicking submit. Students should contact Enrollment Services at 979-830-4800 for assistance with webdrop or to drop due to: severe illness, care for a sick, injured, or needy person, death of a close relative/relation, military duty, military duty of a close relative/relation, or change in work schedule. The last day to drop a class with a Q is set according to the Academic Calendar.

Scholastic Integrity

The Scholastic Integrity Policy is located in the Blinn College Catalog, in Blinn College Board Policy FLDB (LOCAL), and the Blinn College Administrative Procedures Manual. A student accused of scholastic dishonesty is entitled to due process as outlined in these documents.

It is the responsibility of students and faculty members to maintain scholastic integrity at the College District by refusing to tolerate any form of scholastic dishonesty, including cheating, plagiarism, or any other act of dishonesty.  If there is compelling evidence that a student is involved in cheating or plagiarism, the instructor will address the infraction.

Missed Assignments

If you miss any of the assignments you will be given a grade of “0” for that assignment.  I will NOT go back and reopen assignments.  Final Grades are calculated immediately following the Final Exam.  Assignments/Tests missed due to the official Blinn College excused absence policy are eligible for make-up.  Verification of these absences is mandatory.  Access to a computer with an internet connection is a requirement.  There are computers on campus that are available for you to use.  If you choose to use your computer at home, extensions will not be given due to computer problems.  You must make sure you work out the “bugs” by contacting “Support” to ensure your computer is working properly.

 

No Excused Absences

The only Excused Absences are 1 of the 4 listed above in the "Attendance Policy" section. Examples of unexcused absences include, but not limited to: illness, doctor appointments, hospitalization, personal business, court appearance, vehicle breakdowns, or other unrelated business is not excused.  Exams for another class, or other school related business is not excused.

Students: you must report an absence to your instructor, using your Blinn College email account (@buc.blinn.edu) within 24 hours of the class period missed for consideration to be excused.  Your instructor will require official documentation to determine whether the absence is excused or unexcused.  Absences will not be excused at a later date if this procedure is not followed. Classes missed because you were Administratively Withdrawn from the class due to absences is not an excused absence.

 

Student E-Mail Account

Blinn College has a student e-mail account for every student.  It is the student’s responsibility to check this e-mail account daily for important information.  To find out how to access this e-mail account, go to http://www.blinn.edu/acadtech/studentemail/ This is where you will find step-by-step instructions on how to use your account.
