Students carrying cellular phones and other communications and entertainment devices into classrooms and in academic buildings where classes are being held must place them on “silent” mode.
Students are prohibited from using cellular telephones, communications and entertainment devices (ipods, PSPs, etc.) in the classroom. While class is in session, students will refrain from answering or communicating with such devices until class has been dismissed. Failing to comply could result in removal from class and a recorded absence for the session, rejection from the building or other disciplinary action.
Students, staff and faculty are prohibited from using cellular phones and other devices except for duly authorized academic purposes or safety reasons in all classrooms, libraries and academic areas in the Health Education Center, Weller Academic Building 2nd and 3rd floors, Borger Academic Center 1st and 2nd floors, Marsh Hall and any other buildings where classes are scheduled.
Each faculty member is responsible for establishing an electronic devices policy for his or her courses, announcing it to each class at the beginning of each semester and including it in writing on the course syllabus. Penalties or sanctions should be part of this policy.
