ATTENDANCE POLICY:

(To be completed by the Louisiana Technical College Campus.)

Plagiarism, cheati
ng, and other forms of academic dishonesty are prohibited. In addition to other possible disciplinary
sanctions, which may be imposed through the regular institutional procedures as a result of academic misconduct,
your instructor will assign an “F” for t
he exercise or examination that evidences academic misconduct for the first
offense and assign an “F” for the course for repeated offenses.

STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES:

The Louisiana Technical College complies with Section 504 and the Americans with Disabi
lities Act. Students with
disabilities who seek accommodations must make their requests known by contacting the Disabilities Coordinator at
the beginning of each semester. If a disability is identified later in the semester, a non
-
retroactive accommodati
on
plan will be developed.
