Class Policies

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.

BCS Academic Integrity Policy (Click here.)

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.

Professor's Philosophy

  1. All students will be treated fairly, equally, and with respect.
  2. 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.
  3. 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 doctor’s note. Makeups are NOT provided for the last (final) exam.
  4. Changes in the course syllabus will be announced with ample time for adjustments. In no case will assignments be due earlier than originally expected.
  5. Students are to follow the Course Outline and Assignments sheet and be prepared for each class session.
  6. 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.

Extra-Credit Work: 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.
