All outside distractions are to be eliminated if possible, and held to a minimum if not. Cell phones, pagers, and other electronic devices should be set on silent modes of operation. No phone conversations are to be conducted during class sessions in the classroom.
There is to be an atmosphere of academic freedom in the classroom. All students are expected to conduct their selves in a manner that encourages the opinions of others when expressed as a response to course issues. Issues of race, religion, ethnicity, politics, gender orientation, and other social considerations may be topics for academic discussion, however no discrimination will be tolerated.

Plagiarism —the appropriation or imitation of the language or ideas of another person and presenting them as one's original work—sometimes occurs through carelessness or ignorance. Learners who are uncertain about proper documentation of sources should consult their facilitator.
To prevent misunderstanding and error related to the documentation of the term paper, it is important that APA format is used for the papers. It is important that all students know this format and that assumptions not be made that other formats will do. In addition, it is best not to cite large blocks of data in the paper. Rather, it is best to paraphrase and document the information. Large blocks citations of information do not demonstrate the ability of student to research, understand, and explain the information or the subject.
At the end of each paper, the following notice to readers of the paper must be attached. This notice is to acknowledge that the student is responsible for all work on the paper.
