- Tuesday: 11:05 to 1:40
- Wednesdays: 12:15 to 1:05
- Thursdays: Off Campus
- Summer Sessions: 15 minuntes prior to class
or by prior appointment.
- All classes start on time. Students are expected to be in class prior to the beginning of the class period so that the class may start without interruption.
- Cell phones and other electronic devices must be turned off prior to entering the classroom. The prohibition of cell phones is covered in Article II of the Student Code of Conduct. Any disruption of teaching, which specifically includes the use of cell phones, pagers, or other electronic devices, is considered a Level 1 violation of Article II of the Student Code of Conduct. Any violation may result in disciplinary action ranging from a warning letter to probation, suspesion or dismissal from the College. Laptop computers--if used in class--are to be used for academic work only, not for recreational means or surfing the Web.
- Excessive absences will certainly reflect poorly on a student's grade. Students with absences in excess of 3 classes will suffer from a significant loss in their class participation grade. If you miss a class, it is your responsiblity to get the work and be prepared for the next class. Being absent is not an excuse for unpreparedness. In case of unavoidable absence, I recommend that you find a buddy who you can contact for up-to-date class information. Attendance is taken at the beginning of each class.
- Students are required to bring both their textbook, workbook (where applicable), and course syllabus to each class.
- Assignments for my classes are NOT accepted late. Check your Course Outline and Assignments Sheet for critical dates.
- Each student is required to do his/her own work, unless group work is assigned. Plagiarism will not be tolerated and is grounds for an automatic failure.
- Withdrawal Policy: The student must request an official withdrawal on or before the official last date for withdrawal or they will receive an A through F grade. This policy is in alignment with the policy stated in the 2011 - 2012 College Catalog which states: A grade of 'W' will be given to any student who officially withdraws from a course from the beginning of the second week through the end of the ninth week of classes. Withdrawal after the ninth week of classes is permitted only under extenuating circumstances at the discretion of the instructor. Withdrawal after the ninth week of class due to poor grades in NOT considered. It is the responsibility of the student to file the proper paper work to withdraw from a class. Students who do not officially withdraw will be given a grade of A - D or F.
Class Cancellation Policy
In the event that classes are canceled due to inclement weather, the Farmingdale State web site home page will have up the latest information.
Public Health Law
New York State Public Health Law 2165 requires all students born on or after January 1, 1957 who register for 6 or more credits to prove immunity to Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR).
The College will disenroll any student who is not in compliance with this law. If there is any doubt about the status of your compliance with Public Health Law 2165, please check with the Health and Wellness Center (631) 420-2009, located behind Memorial Hall.
It is strongly recommended that all students go to the BCS Academic Integrity Policy page on this website and read through the guidelines listed. It is the student's responsibility to read this policy thoroughly and ask questions if there is anything that is not understood. Not knowing the policy is not an excuse for committing an act of academic dishonestly.
- All students will be treated fairly, equally, and with respect.
- Students are expected to treat their Professor and classmates fairly, equally, and with respect. Entering class after the start of class is disruptive and disrespectful to both Professor and classmates, therefore, 1-point will be deducted from a student's participation grade for each lateness.
- Students will be expected to take responsibility for their education by:
- studying, understanding, and following the Course Syllabus; Questions regarding the Course Syllabus are added to the first exam or quiz as applicable.
- reading all assigned text materials prior to coming to class;
- submittting all course assignments on time;
- attending class sessions refreshed and ready to work;
- completing each quiz and exam on the date assigned. Makeups are allowed only with a doctors note. Makeups are NOT provided for the last (final) exam.
- Changes in the course syllabus will be announced with ample time for adjustments. In no case will assignments be due earlier than originally expected.
- Students are to follow the Course Outline and Assignments sheet and be prepared for each class session.
- Students are encouraged to ask questions to gain understanding. Students who desire answers in reference to the Course Syllabus or Course Outline and Assignments Sheets should seek out those documents prior to speaking with the Professor.
Many times students ask me if they can do extra-credit work. This course provides you with more than enough work that prepares you with the skill level you will need in this subject area. Extra-credit work, therefore, is provided in the area of community service. If you are interested in doing extra-credit work, click here.
SUPPORT SERVICES FOR STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES:
If you have a disability for which you are or may be requesting an accommodation, you are encouraged to contact both your instructor and the Office of Support Services for Students with Disabilities, Laffin Hall, Room 205, 420-2411, Room 329, 420-2607 as soon as possible in the term.
