ATTENDANCE POLICY:

TBA

Plagiarism, cheating, 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 the 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 Disabilities Act. Students with
disab
ilities 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 accommodation
