STUDENT CONDUCT IN THE COURSE: The instructor in the classroom and in conference will encourage free discussion, inquiry, and expression. Student performance will be evaluated wholly on an academic basis, not on opinions or political ideas unrelated to academic standards. However, in instances where a student does not comply with the Code of Student Behavior or with an instructor's reasonable conduct expectations in the course, such non-compliance can affect the student's evaluation and be cause for permanent removal from class or dismissal from College.
COMMUNICATIONS ETIQUETTE: The State University of New York at Delhi is committed to open, insightful and relevant dialogue in all of its courses, especially those being presented via the Internet, as that is what formulates the bulk of the course content and material. Diversity of thought, opinion, and values are created as a result of this process and, as such, we encourage all students to be respectful of that diversity, thereby refraining from inappropriate commentary. Should such inappropriate action occur, the instructor will intervene as each piece of dialogue that takes place in the course is monitored. The student making the infraction will be notified and appropriate disciplinary action will be taken. The following are sound guidelines to follow regarding communication etiquette:
- Never post, transmit, promote, or distribute content that is known to be illegal.
- Never post harassing, threatening, or embarrassing comments.
- If you disagree with someone, respond to the subject, not the person.
- Never post content that is harmful; abusive; racially, ethnically, or religiously offensive; vulgar; sexually explicit; or otherwise potentially offensive.
ACADEMIC INTEGRITY POLICY: If a faculty member discovers that a student has committed an academic integrity violation that warrants a sanction beyond a verbal warning, such as cheating or plagiarizing, the procedures outlined in the Academic Integrity Policy will be followed. http://www.delhi.edu/academics/provost/academic_integrity.php .
NEW YORK STATE EDUCATION LAW - ABSENCES FOR RELIGIOUS REASONS: Section 224-A allows a student to be excused from any examination or study or work requirements because of religious holidays. Each student must notify the instructor in advance so that an equivalent opportunity to make up any examination, study, or work requirements he or she may have missed because of such absence may be given.
POWER OUTAGES/SYSTEM FAILURES: In the event of a power outage or system failure of the Delhi systems, notification may be placed on the Delhi Logins page ( http://www.delhi.edu/logins ) or sent to all campus users via email. It is up to each individual instructor to decide whether certain activities will have extended time or additional attempts following such an outage. If a student experiences a local outage in her or his service area, the student will be expected to complete course work on time or communicate with the instructor to make alternative plans.
ACCOMMODATIONS FOR STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES: Reasonable accommodations will be provided to qualified students with documented disabilities. If you have a disability requiring accommodations, contact the Coordinator of Access and Equity Services, Linda Weinberg, at firstname.lastname@example.org, fax (607) 746-4368 or call (607) 746-4593. Your request for accommodation will be reviewed and if determined to be reasonable, you will be provided with a verification letter that must be delivered to your course instructor and sent back to Linda Weinberg.
