Blinn College Policies


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

Specific information on civility, attendance, add/drop, scholastic integrity, students with disabilities, final grade appeal, alternative retailers, campus carry and proctoring arrangements and cost.

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.

Course Policies


1) Attendance: The College District believes that class attendance is essential for student success; therefore, students are required to promptly and regularly attend all their classes. Each class meeting builds the foundation for subsequent class meetings. Without full participation and regular class attendance, students may find themselves at a severe disadvantage for achieving success in college. Class participation shall constitute at least ten percent of the final course grade. It is the responsibility of each faculty member, in consultation with the division chair, to determine how participation is achieved in his or her class. Faculty will require students to regularly attend class and will keep a record of attendance from the first day of class 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 absences during the semester (2 classes), he/she will be sent an e-mail by the College requiring the student to contact his/her instructor and schedule a conference immediately to discuss his/her attendance issues. If the student subsequently accumulates two weeks worth of absences (4 classes), he/she may be administratively withdrawn from the class.

            There are four forms of excused absence officially designated by Blinn College: (1) observance of religious holy days: the student should notify his/her instructor(s) no 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 Blinn College at an official institutional function; (3) official involvement in a high school activity for “dual credit” students; and (4) military service. Other excuses will be considered and may be considered excusable at the instructor’s discretion with documentation. Missing lecture or lab or both will count as one absence. E-mails from students explaining absences must be received within 1 day. After 1 day, documentation must be presented to remove an unexcused absence. Documentation must be presented if a test / major quiz is missed to avoid penalties being applied to your score.

            96 hour contact rule - State policy dictates that students enrolled in a class that involves a lab have 96 hours of contact with their professor for the semester. Therefore, we are expected to use the full lecture and lab periods. As such, do not leave either period early otherwise you will be counted absent.

            2) Dropping: If a student chooses to withdraw from the course, it is that student’s responsibility to complete a drop order at the Office of Enrollment Services. The last day to withdraw with a “Q” is Friday, July 27.

            3) Food and drinks are not allowed in the laboratory or classroom at any time.

            4) Honor code: Blinn College does not tolerate cheating, plagiarism, or other acts of dishonesty. Definitions of these acts and procedures for dealing with them are described in “Scholastic Dishonesty” in the Blinn College Student Handbook, copies of which are available at the information desk in the administration building.

            5) Classroom attire: please use good judgment; no obscene writing or graphics on clothing; lab room rules are more stringent

            6) Electronic device policy: Cell phones, pagers, iPods, etc. should be turned off during class. Laptop use to follow / take notes is encouraged. You are welcome to record the lectures.

            7) 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 applies to attire as well as language and behavior.

            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.

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 Biology Department Head.

Biology Department Head: Chelsey Dakenbring

Laboratory Safety

Students will be provided with laboratory safety training during the first week of class. Students are expected to follow all safety rules including rules related to proper lab attire. A list of what is appropriate will be presented during the safety training meeting. Closed toe shoes along with socks are required in the laboratory. Students that fail to follow this rule, will be required to leave the lab and will be assigned an unexcused absence for the class day. No food or drink is allowed at any time.

Please note: proper lab attire is essentially "no skin showing".  As a result your are required to get a lab coat and safety glasses.
