Classroom Norms


You are expected to treat the classroom with respect and seriousness. Your instructor will treat you as a student, not as a customer or consumer.

You are expected to adhere to the following general classroom norms:

1. Turn off your cell phone prior to the start of class. One student will be designated as a recipient for Orange Alert messages.

2. Do not use laptops in class unless you have secured instructor permission to do so. The Office of Disability Services can provide you with documentation if a laptop is a necessity for you.

3. Do not leave the classroom while class is in session except in the case of extreme personal emergency.

4. Bring copies of the text under discussion to class every day.

5. You are expected to pay attention to and be respectful of other members of the class.

PLEASE NOTE THAT INDIVIDUAL INSTRUCTORS MAY HAVE MORE SPECIFIC OR ADDITIONAL GUIDELINES FOR CLASSROOM PROTOCOL.
