In the event of a delayed opening, MAC will follow a compressed schedule. This will provide students with the opportunity to attend all scheduled classes on delay days with each class meeting for a shorter than usual session. For the Compressed Schedule for delay days, go to the following link.
All students are expected to regularly log in to the Blackboard course website. The site contains the syllabus and assignments, and supplementary materials will be placed there on a regular basis. Furthermore, important announcements will be posted on the site (especially if a class period is canceled due to weather, illness, etc.). For assistance in using Blackboard, please contact the Blackboard administrator at (Blackboard@mtaloy.edu ).
College offices and instructors often communicate important information through the MAC email system. Students should check their school email account regularly. For technical or log-in credential questions, please contact the help desk at (firstname.lastname@example.org or 886-6502).
Should a student encounter difficulty with course content or other aspects of the course, the first action should be to make an appointment to speak with the instructor. The instructor may suggest resources on campus or other tips to assist student learning. If a student has concerns with their instructor, then the best course of action is to seek out a meeting with the Department Chair (Dr. O'Connor, 886-6499, POConnor@mtaloy.edu) to discuss the difficulties. If an agreeable decision is not reached, the student should then request a meeting with the Division Chairperson (Dr. Anderson, 886-6501, MAnderson@mtaloy.edu). The Faculty, Department Chairs, and Division Chairs are committed to treating all students with respect and fairness. Additional information is outlined in the academic grievance policy in the College catalog.
Mount Aloysius College is committed to the academic integrity of the entire community. All share responsibility for maintaining high standards of academic integrity, and no forms of academic dishonesty are tolerated. Forms of academic dishonesty include but are not restricted to: giving or receiving unauthorized assistance on an examination, project, or assignment; using unauthorized forms of assistance such as crib notes or cell phones on an examination; falsification of data or plagiarism (using another person's ideas or words as your own); and lying or falsifying reasons for missing examinations or class.
A student found guilty of lying, cheating, or plagiarism, depending on the nature of the offense and the history of the student, is usually subject to one or both of the following: a grade of zero on the assignment, project, or examination or a grade of F in the course. All cases of lying, cheating, or plagiarism where a punishment is incurred are reported to the Senior Vice President of Academic Affairs, who maintains a record of all offenses. Serial offenders may be subject to suspension or dismissal.
Mount Aloysius College is committed to providing reasonable accommodations to students with disabilities. Students with disabilities who wish to request an accommodation are required to contact Ms. Marisa Evans, MA, LPC,NCC, Director of Counseling and Disability Services to formally request accommodations and provide supporting documentation. Her office is located in St. Joseph Hall, Room 101, (814) 886-6336. If you receive approval for accommodations, it is important that you stop in during my office hours at the start of the semester so necessary arrangements can be made.
Attendance at all lecture and lab sessions is mandatory. It is your responsibility to notify the instructor prior to missing an exam or laboratory and you must have a valid reason. The instructor reserves the right to judge the validity of the excuse. If you miss an exam, you are responsible for taking the exam within one week of your return. There are no makeup labs unless you are able to come to another section during the same week and obtain instructor permission. Failure of the student to follow the steps outlined above will result in a grade of "0" for the missed exam or lab!
Grades are NOT curved. Grades are based on the total amount of points accumulated. Your grade can be calculated by dividing the sum of all your exam scores by the total number of possible points. Other grades (E, W, WP, WF) will be assigned as described in the College Catalog.
Every laboratory user should observe the following rules:
