Instructor’s Plan for classroom response time and feedback

Student response can be made either via email or GroupMe. Students can expect a response within 12 hours of instructor receiving the initial contact.

Attendance Policy

Students are expected to attend all classes and actively participate in activities with the group. In the event that a student is sick, the student should communicate with the instructor to let them know the student will not be in attendance. If the student is to be absent for any other reason, the student should communicate their reasoning to the instructor at least a week in advance. Student’s attendance in this class will affect their grades and is mandatory for inclusion in the President’s Leadership Class.

Administrative Withdrawal

Faculty may administratively withdraw a student from a class for nonattendance or for failure to submit academic work after the drop/add period until the published final date to withdraw from a single class, typically the end of the 12th week in a 16th week semester.  AWs will be used for students who do not attend class or submit work in class for a substantial, consecutive, number of class time defined as equivalent to 2 weeks of class time.  Any student who is assigned an AW will be responsible for any tuition and fees associated with the class.

Academic Integrity Policy

Connors State College values integrity and expects students to meet the highest ethical standards in their academic pursuits.  Connors State College faculty and staff share this responsibility.  We work to ensure an honest academic environment and to provide a process for fair resolutions of alleged violations of academic integrity.  Violations of academic integrity are viewed very seriously.  Any form of academic dishonesty is subject to disciplinary actions by the college.

  1. The absence of academic integrity is described as cheating, often defined as “the deceptions of others about one’s work.”  Such acts may include but are not limited to the following list compiled by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Educations Advisory Council:
    1. Submitting another’s work as one’s own or allowing another to submit one’s work as though it were his or hers;
    1. Several people completing an assignment and turning in multiple copies all represented either implicitly or explicitly as individual work;
    1. Failing to contribute an equal share in group assignments or projects while claiming equal credit for the work;
    1. Using a textbook, notes, or technology tools during an examination without the permission of the instructor;
    1. Receiving or giving unauthorized help on assignment(s) or examinations(s);
    1. Stealing a problem solution or assessment answers from an instructor, a student or other sources;
    1. Tampering with experimental data to obtain “desired” results, or creating results for experiments not done;
    1. Creating results for observations or interviews that were not done;
    1. Obtaining an unfair advantage by gaining or providing access to examination materials
    1. Tampering with or destroying the work of others;
    1. Submitting substantial portions of the same academic work for credit or honors more than once without permission of the present professor;
    1. Lying about these or other academic matters;
    1. Accessing computer systems or files without authorization;
    1. Plagiarizing (Plagiarism is generally defined as the use in one’s writing of specific words, phrases, and/or ideas of another without giving proper credit );
    1. Self-plagiarism is generally defined as a type of plagiarism in which the writer republished a work in its entirety or reuses portions of previously written text while authoring a new work;
    1. Falsifying college records, forms, or other documents;
    1. Submitting work that has been created or thoroughly edited by an Artificial Intelligence program.
  • Any violation of academic integrity by a student that is detected by a college staff member shall be reported by the staff member to the appropriate instructor or college administrator.
  • Should an instructor determine that a student violation of academic integrity has occurred, the following actions shall be taken:
  1. The instructor may record a zero for the exam, quiz, or assignment in question, require the student to redo the assignment, assign a failing grade in the class, or recommend other appropriate actions.
    1. The instructor shall report the incident and action taken to the Vice President for Academic Affairs by completing the Academic Integrity Report. 
    1. If the student denies the allegation, he or she may file an appeal with the Vice President for Academic Affairs at the end of the semester within six months from the time the final grade was submitted.  Any further actions(s) taken will follow the guidelines set in the Academic Grade Appeal process outlined in the Student Handbook.
    1. Student Conduct Code Violation complaint will be submitted to the Dan of Students if (a) the incident is an extreme violation, or (b) there are repeated instances of violations on file.

Grade Appeals

A student may appeal a grade given by an instructor in cases in which he or she believes the final grade awarded is erroneous, assigned arbitrarily, or inconsistent with the announced grading policy.

The student grade appeal process must be initiated within six months from the time the student receives his/her contested final grade.  The procedure to follow is:

  1. Instructor: The student meets with the instructor.  If consensus is not reached, the appeal moves to the Division Chair level.
  2. Division Chair: The student prepares a written appeal and presents it tot eh appropriate Division Chair.  If the Division Chair is the student’s instructor, the appeal is presented to eh Vice President for Academic Affairs.  If consensus is not reached, the appeal moves from the Division Chair to the Grade Appeals Committee.
    1. Grade Appeals Committee:  The Grade Appeals Committee is appointed by the Vice President for Academic Affairs.  Committee members selected will not be from the academic division involved.  At a Grade Appeals Committee meeting the following events will occur:
      1. The student states in writing (and in person if the student requests) the reason for the appeal.
      1. The instructor provides evidence indicating how the grade was assigned.
      1. The committee valuates the evidence, provides reasons for their decision, and prepares a report.  Written notice of the decision is sent within ten (10) working days to the student, the instructor, the instructor’s Division Chair, and the Vice President for Academic Affairs.
      1. The student has five (5) working days to file a written appeal of the committee’s findings to the Vice President for Academic Affairs.
    1. Vice President for Academic Affairs: The Vice President for Academic Affairs will consider appeals in the event new evidence surfaces or other unusual circumstances.  The decision of the Vice President for Academic Affairs will be rendered within thirty (30) days of receipt of the complaint and shall conclude the procedure of a grade appeal.
    1. College President:  The student submits a written appeal to the President, providing all documentation. 

Accessibility Policy

Americans Disabilities Act (ADA)

The Americans Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) is the civil rights guarantee for persons with disabilities in the United States. It provides protection from discrimination for individuals on the basis of disability. The ADA extends civil rights protection for people with disabilities to employment in the public and private sectors, transportation, public accommodations, services provided by state and local government, and telecommunications.

Accessibility Policy

The faculty, staff, and administration at Connors State College will adhere to the policies as set in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and are committed to making reasonable accommodations for all with disabilities who are qualified to be in an Associate degree program. Connors’s learning platform for online course delivery (Canvas) also meets accessibility standards.

Students are responsible for submitting all professional documentation outlining specific needs and requirements to the ADA Coordinator, Jody Butler,  This professional documentation must be established before any accommodations can be made by the instructor or by appropriate college personnel. Depending on the specific documented disability of the qualified student, course accommodations may include a wide variety of options. Any accommodations will be determined by campus personnel responsible for ADA accommodations in conjunction with the professionally documented disability of the student.

Services Available

Connors State College is committed to providing assistance to students that will facilitate their independence and academic progress. Students should utilize these services to support their academic goals. Reasonable accommodations are based on appropriate documentations and disability-related needs, and not desire. Students should be aware that services will be designed in a manner to remove barriers in the classroom that could hinder a student’s ability to learn. Services are not intended to give the student an unfair advantage over other students in the class. Each case will be viewed individually and determinations made upon the documentation submitted and discussion with the student. When providing accommodation for disabilities, institutions of higher education are not required to lower academic standards or compromise the integrity of the school or program.

CSC Nondiscrimination Policy

It is the policy of Connors State College not to discriminate in its educational programs, activities or employment policies, on the basis of race, color, religion or national origin as required by Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1954; on the basis of sex as required by Title IX of the 1972 Educational Amendments; on the basis of disability as required by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, or on the basis of age or veteran status.

Dropping and Withdrawing from Courses

Dropping a course (or courses) may occur during the first two weeks of a 16-week semester and the first week of an 8-week term. Courses dropped during the add/drop period will not be on your transcript.

Withdraw: The date to “withdraw” from a single course depends on the length of the course. Dates are listed above. After the last day to withdraw from a single course, a course may be dropped by permission of the Vice President for Academic Affairs but only when verifiable extenuating circumstances can be demonstrated, such as illness or accidental injury. Poor performance in class is not an extenuating circumstance. You may exercise a “Total Withdrawal” or withdraw from all of your courses with a grade of “W” and will be no longer registered for the current semester. This may occur until the Thursday before Finals Week. The withdrawal process is initiated in the Admissions/Registrar’s Office. You are financially responsible for all courses you are registered for the drop and add period

Absences due to participation in college-sponsored activities or military training are typically excused, but you should always give your instructors as much advanced notice as possible.

Connors State College PRIDE establishes an environment where PREPARATION of curriculum is done with the knowledge that all students bring with them a unique heritage.  RETENTION of students is a key goal and is encouraged by providing a safe, supportive, culturally responsive environment that acknowledges them as a person.  There is INCLUSION of stories, examples, and assignments that reflect many cultures.  DEVELOPMENT of the whole person is accomplished through the use of multiple learning styles.  ENGAGEMENT with local communities is recognized as important and encouraged.

Student Email

All email communication with your professor should be done through your Connors Email address. Remember to check your email regularly for information from your instructors.

Class Attendance is Important

Attendance usually has a very high correlation to performance in the classroom. Talk with your instructor about any absences. Many instructors consider attendance so important that your grade may be affected by absenteeism. SOME INSTRUCTORS HAVE MANDATORY ATTENDANCE POLICIES. Check your course syllabus or ask your instructor for this information.
