Academic Honesty:

Any behavior indicating dishonesty, unethical intent or action as
specified by CFCC will result in an “F” for the
course. Please read the section on “Cheating” in the CFCC Catalog and Student Handbook.

Plagiarism is using as your own the words or ideas of another, whether written or oral. When you use
material from a source, you must quote or paraphrase accurately and properly cite the information. Failure to
do so is considered plagiarism. Examples o
f plagiarism include word
-
for
-
word copying without correctly
indicating that you are quoting, inaccurate quoting and paraphrasing, and incomplete or missing
documentation. Purchasing a paper or copying someone else’s work and submitting it as your own are

also
plagiarism.
Any

misrepresentation of the source in your writing or speaking would constitute a form of
plagiarism.

Whether intentional or unintentional, plagiarism is not acceptable and will result in the student being assigned
a grade of zero for the assignment and/or the course, at the instructor’s discretion.

Religious Observances:

Students will be allowed two days

of excused absence each academic year for religious observances
required by the faith of the student. These excused absences will be included in the twenty (20%) percent
of allowable clock hour absences. Students are required to provide written notice of

the request for an
excused absence by completing the Religious Observance Absence form available in Student
Development. The completed form must be submitted to the Vice President of Student Development or

his/her designee a minimum of ten (10) school day

of Student Development or his/her designee will notify the instructor within three (3) school days of
receiving the request. Students will be given the opportunity to make up any tests or other work
missed
due to the excused absence and should work with their instructors in advance of the excused absence to
delineate how to make up the misse
d coursework (N.C.G.S. 115D
-
5).

Children on Campus Policy:

Per CFCC policy

(Catalog & Student Handbook), c
hildre
n cannot be taken into classrooms, laboratories or
shops

unless authorized by College personnel. Please be advised that, in part due to liability issues, children
are not allowed into any classroom
.

Contingency Plan:

If there is an emergency and the instru
ctor or an appropriate substitute does not meet with the class, wait
fifteen minutes. Then, everyone in the class should sign a roll sheet and designate someone to take it to the
Science Depart
ment Chair or Secretary in N203
.

Class Conduct:

1.

Come to class on time and stay for the duration of class. Failure to do so will result in your
being marked
absent and loss of points.


2.

Do your own work. If you do not participate in lab or if you are caught cheating on any exam or
assignment, you will receive a 0 on the lab, exam, or assignment, be asked to leave class, and be marked
absent. You ma
y be removed permanently from class and given an F for the course. Refer to your Student
Handbook for the CFCC’s policies on cheating.


3.

Unsafe and/or disruptive behaviors such as talking, cell phone usage, sleeping or anything else that
degrades the

are asked to leave class will receive an absence and a 0 for the class. They may not return
to class until
they have spoken with the instructor and/or the department head as determined by the instructor.


4.

The best way to do well in
this course is to come to class and

take good notes. Do the
homework
, study
and ask for help as we go, not at the la
st minute.
