Students carrying mobile devices into classrooms and in academic buildings where classes are being held must place them on “silent” mode.
Students are prohibited from using mobile devices in the classroom except as specifically allowed by the faculty member for academic purposes. 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.
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.
