Rhodes State College is a tobacco-free campus.
Students are expected to check their e-mail on a frequent and consistent basis in order to stay current with college- and course- related communications. Students have the responsibility to recognize that certain communications may be time-critical. “I didn’t check my e-mail,” error in forwarding mail, or email returned to the college with “Mailbox Full” or “User Unknown” is not an acceptable excuse for missing official College communications via e-mail. RSC recommends checking email once a week at a minimum in recognition that certain communications may be time-critical.
Students are expected to use proper etiquette when submitting emails to College personnel. When sending emails, the College expects students to exhibit the same professionalism and respect to College faculty and staff as you would in person; use a positive tone and use correct spelling and grammar before sending the email.
Attendance Regular attendance is needed to gain an understanding of the course’s content and to satisfactorily demonstrate required competencies. Lack of attendance will negatively impact the earned grade and if flagrant, could result in a grade of “E” which may negatively impact a student’s financial aid eligibility.
(See Federal Student Aid Handbook for further information.) Withdrawal A student who registers for classes, but who decides not to attend the College must officially withdraw from the College dropping their classes. Failure to officially withdraw will result in the student being awarded grades of “E” in all courses, and the student being required to pay all assessed fees even though the student has actually left the College.
Students are responsible to officially drop/withdraw from all courses which they are registered when they decide to no longer attend. If a student does not initiate an official drop/withdraw within the Office of Advising, the institution has the right to identify a date of drop/withdraw. Students identified as not attending will be withdrawn failing “WF” by the college beginning the 6th week of the semester.
(Federal Student Aid Handbook, Vol. 4, Ch 3). Students will be notified of the action by U.S. mail. If attendance is a required element of the course and this is stated in the course materials, lack of attendance may result in a grade of “E” rather than “WF.” Incomplete An “I” indicates that the work of the student in the course is qualitatively satisfactory, but that for legitimate reasons a small fraction remains to be completed; or that the record of the student in the course justifies the expectation that he or she will obtain a passing grade, but he or she has been unavoidably absent from the final examination.
The grade “I” shall be temporarily recorded on the student’s grade report. The student must complete the work and the instructor must report the final grade at the earliest possible time, but not later than the sixth Friday following the first day of the semester subsequent to the one in which the “I” was received (not counting summer term). Upon the request of the student to the instructor, within the six week period, the Vice President for Academic Affairs may for good reason allow a student additional time in which to complete the work. Generally, this shall not be longer than the end of the semester following the semester in which the “I” was received. As soon as the incomplete work has been made up, the instructor, or in the case of his or her absence from the College, the Dean, shall ensure the proper grade is entered on the student’s record.
Until such time as the final grade is recorded, the credit hours in the incomplete courses shall not be counted or considered for any purpose. In no case shall a student who has received the grade “I” be permitted to repeat the course in which such grade was received until such time as the “I” has been removed. If the student fails to complete the coursework, the final grade will be determined by giving the student a zero on all remaining and unfinished work. These zeros will be used to calculate the final course grade. Students who are unsuccessful in a required competency (as defined in the syllabus) will receive an “E/U” grade. Note: A student’s Financial Aid Status and/or Academic Standing will be affected by the Incomplete.
Please sign up for Rhodes Alert which can be found on the Rhodes State College website. Rhodes Alert was created to provide students with Emergency Notifications in the event of Weather Emergencies, Weather Closures, and Campus Security Threats. These notifications will be delivered via phone, email, and text message. The local TV and radio stations also post information about College closures.
Weather Delays and Cancellations:
In the event that weather forces a delay to the start of the academic day, the College will announce when classes will begin. Classes starting and ending prior to the announced start time are cancelled. If the class starts before the announced start time but still has more than 30 minutes of class remaining after the start time, that class will begin at the announced specific time and end at its normal time.
For example, if the College delays until 10:00 a.m., a class starting at 8:00 a.m. and ending at 10:20 a.m. would be canceled for that day. If, however, a class begins at 9:30 a.m. and has an ending time of 11:00 a.m., it would be held from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. that day.
This same 30 minute rule will be used in the event of an early closure of the College. The portion of the class which was scheduled prior to the announced closure time would be canceled if the start time is 30 minutes or less before the closure time.
For example, if the College announces a 6:00 p.m. closing time, classes that begin at 5:30 p.m.
would be canceled. If a class is scheduled to begin at 5:00 p.m. on that same day and had a 7:30 p.m. end time, the class would run from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. on that day.
Because student travel to clinical/practicum experiences may begin at an early hour, program leadership may delay the start to enable the College to assess weather conditions and allow for the College’s communication process to occur.
When the College does not issue an official delay or cancellation, students are expected to exercise their mature judgment in determining whether to attend classes or activities sanctioned by Rhodes State College. In accordance with procedures established by each individual faculty member, students are accountable for any material missed during an absence without an official delay or announced cancellation. In all cases, students are expected to pursue, by their own self-directed efforts, the course content, activities, and assignments for which they are responsible during the period of absence.
Students are responsible for following appropriate campus emergency procedures. Students are
encouraged to review the Building Emergency Action Plan on the college website:

Students must meet with Accommodative Services, receive an Accommodations Letter, and present the letter to the instructor before accommodations take effect. Accommodations are not retroactive.
Plagiarism: Plagiarism is defined (As per Rhodes State Student Code of Conduct), as “The unacknowledged use (intentional or unintentional), by paraphrase or direct quotation, of the published or unpublished work of another person or agency engaged in the selling of term papers or other academic materials. Acknowledgement must be in accordance with course guidelines, and documentation must occur whenever a student uses direct quotations; copies a table, chart, or diagram; constructs a table from data provided by others; paraphrases a passage; summarizes a passage; presents specific examples, figures, or factual information from a specific source and uses it to explain or support his/her judgments.
Plagiarism covers the use of print, electronic, filmed, and broadcast material.” Students are encouraged to review the Code of Student Conduct on the college website (http://www.rhodesstate.edu/currentstudents) for examples of academic dishonesty.
Submitting Substantially The Same Work. Submitting substantially the same work to satisfy requirements for one course that has been previously submitted and satisfied the requirements for another course, without permission of the instructor for which the work is being submitted and without including the original work for comparison is not permitted. See Section 10.5, paragraph 5 of the Code of Student Conduct.
