Use of Electronic Devices in the Classroom

Visible and audible use of cell phones is prohibited in classrooms. Students are expected to inform friends and family members not to call during class times, except for emergencies. Students may have their cell phones on vibrate or silent mode in case of emergency. Text messaging during class is prohibited.

Computer use during class time should be for academic-related purposes only. Use of computers for personal communication, personal entertainment, or non-academic Internet use is strictly prohibited. Working on academic assignments, which are not designated as “in-class” assignments, is also prohibited.

Inappropriate in-class use of any electronic device may result in dismissal from the classroom setting. Repeated use may result in a lowering of the grade for unprofessional or disruptive behavior or failure to meet the course requirements or student learning outcomes.
