Course Policies

Attendance
Students are expected to attend every class.  All work assigned during a given week is to be completed and submitted by the deadline given on the course syllabus.  When the student misses 2 weeks, the student will be given 2 absences, notified by email and dropped from the course at the next occurrence of absence/missed assignments.

Completing late work does NOT make up for current assignments and students will still be counted absent if current work is not submitted.

The 4 excused absences include:
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.

Sickness, death, work, failed technology, loss of electricity, etc. are not excused absences.

Late Work Policy
Late Work: Assignments, Exams, Quizzes, etc. are due according to the schedule. Late assignments will be deducted 10% for days 1-2 late, 20% for days 3-5, 30% for days 6-7, after that a grade of zero will be assigned.

Assignments are due in class by the due date given on the syllabus.
Project: No late work will be accepted.
Final Exams: No late work will be accepted.

Except for Chapter 1, you are expected to read each chapter prior to the class in which it will be discussed.  It is your responsibility to inform me prior to the class (or as soon as possible) as to why you will not be able to complete the assignment or testing on the scheduled date.  A make-up for exam will be determined by my assessment of why you will not be able to take the exam or why you missed the exam.

Academic Integrity (Cheating Policy)
Dishonesty of any kind will not be tolerated. This includes copying work from another student or computer and turning it in as your own. Depending on the severity of the dishonesty, one may receive either a zero for the assignment or exam or may fail the course. All persons involved in copying or granting permission to copy will be penalized. 

Notification of Initial License Per HB 1508, effective September 1, 2017, amended Texas Occupation Code, Chapter 53, requires notice regarding consequences of a criminal conviction on eligibility for an occupational license. If a student has been convicted of a criminal offense, it is possible to complete an HITT program, however, placement of a clinical site or employment is not guaranteed. Each Health Science Program will vary, please check with the director of the program you are accepted into for further clarification.

Class Behavior Management - Students are expected to observe proper classroom behavior.  Any student engaging in disruptive behavior during class will be given a 15 points deduction during current due assignment.  Further disruption will earn a 30 points deduction in next major exam.

Per Texas HB 1508, effective 9/1/2017:

"For students in this course, who may have a criminal background, please be advised that the background could keep you from being licensed by the State of Texas.  If you have a question about your background and licensure, please speak with your faculty member or the department chair. You also have the right to request a criminal history evaluation letter from the applicable licensing agency.”
