All students must be officially enrolled in any course that they attend. It is expected that students will attend
scheduled classes regularly and on time. If an absence occurs, it is the responsibility of the student to make
up all missed work, if approved by the instructor. Students who stop attending a course and do not officially
drop, may receive a grade of “F” for all coursework missed that may result in a punitive final grade. An
instructor may drop a student for excessive absences if the student misses 10% of the class.
This policy shall be superseded by any more stringent attendance policy required by a regulatory or
licensing body having jurisdiction over program requirements. The attendance policy for each class must be
included in the course syllabi.
Attendance will be tracked and maintained for various reporting purposes.
In the Commercial Diving Program attendance limits are 30 hours per semester or 10% of any course. Exceeding
these limits will result in being dropped from the program. An absence at test time will result in a zero for the test.
EVALUATION AND GRADING:
Evaluation is by written tests. Each individual test must be passed with a grade of 70% or more. A student is allowed
a maximum of 2 attempts to pass a test. If a grade of 70% is still not achieved the course must be repeated. If a test
is passed on the 2 attempt a maximum grade of 70% will be recorded regardless of the score achieved. An
absence at test time is regarded as the first attempt and receives a zero.
The grading scale at Louisiana Technical College for all programs, except those regulated by a licensing
board, is listed below. The students’ transcript will include the letter grade only, not the percentage grade.
90% - 100% A
80% - 89% B
70% - 79% C
60% - 69% D
59% - Below F
Plagiarism, cheating, and other forms of academic dishonesty are prohibited. In addition to other possible disciplinary
sanctions, which may be imposed through the regular institutional procedures as a result of academic misconduct,
your instructor will assign a zero for the exercise or examination that evidences academic misconduct for the first
offense and assign an “F” for the course for repeated offenses.
STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES:
The Louisiana Technical College complies with Section 504 and the Americans with Disabilities Act. Students with
disabilities who seek accommodations must make their requests known by contacting the Disabilities Coordinator at
the beginning of each semester. If a disability is identified later in the semester, a non-retroactive accommodation
plan will be developed.
