Students will be held responsible for the information on these
Each student is expected to maintain the highest standards of honesty and integrity
in online academic and professional matters. The College reserves the right
to take disciplinary action, up to and including dismissal, against any student
who is found guilty of academic dishonesty or otherwise fails to meet these
standards. Academic dishonesty includes, but is not limited to, dishonesty in
quizzes, tests, or assignments; claiming credit for work not done or done by
others; and nondisclosure or misrepresentation in filling out applications or
other College records. Cheating or gaining illegal information for any type of graded work is considered dishonest and will be dealt with accordingly.
Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Information
Any student requiring special accommodations should contact the Special Needs
Student Services Coordinator at (575) 492-2576 or by e-mail at email@example.com.
Attendance is required at every session of each course for which the student is enrolled. When unavoidable circumstances make attendance impossible, students must provide a satisfactory explanation of their absences to their professors. College-sponsored activities are considered excused absences and the appropriate sponsor of those students who will be absent from class will notify professors. Students having absences due to college-sponsored activities will need to make arrangements with the affected classes / professor to take care of required work; however, arrangements for make-ups should be made within a reasonable time frame, usually within one week of the absence. Regarding make-up work, absences due to late registration are considered the same as regular absences.
All cell phones and pagers must be turned off when the student is participating
in any lecture, laboratory, or other learning activity.
The professor is responsible for maintaining a class environment best suited
for effective learning. By registering for this class, the student is assumed
to have entered into an agreement with New Mexico Junior College and the professor
to attend the class regularly and to behave in an appropriate manner
at all times. Disruptive behavior may result in the student
being removed from the class.
Food and Drink Policy
Food items and soft drinks may not be consumed in NMJC classrooms.
Students are also discouraged from bringing food and drink items into the classroom
even though these items remain in sealed packaging. Bottled water is permissible.
No Children in the Classroom
In order to adhere to instructional procedures as well as maintain the safety
of children, NMJC’s policy of no children in the classrooms (lecture,
lab, etc.) will be followed.
Offering the work of another as one’s own, without proper acknowledgment,
is plagiarism; therefore, any student who fails to give credit for quotations
or essentially identical expression of material taken from books, encyclopedias,
magazines and other reference works, or from the themes, reports, or other writings
of a fellow student, is guilty of plagiarism. Plagiarism violates the academic
honesty policy and is considered cheating.
Smoking/Use of Tobacco
New Mexico Junior College is cognizant of the health hazards associated with
smoking / use of tobacco for the smoker, as well as the non-smoker. In an effort
to provide a healthy environment for students, employees, and others who may
frequent the campus, NMJC prohibits smoking / use of tobacco inside any campus
building or facility.
Free tutoring services are available to all NMJC students through Brainfuse and the Academic Success Center located in Mansur Hall room 123 and 124.
Regular, punctual attendance is required for all classes at NMJC. Although the professor has the right to drop any student who has missed the equivalent of 2 weeks of instruction (based on a 16 week semester) whether it’s a face to face, online, or a hybrid course, it is not guaranteed that the professor will drop the student. If the student chooses to stop attending a class, he/she should withdraw from the class by accessing your student account in the T-Bird Web Portal at www.nmjc.edu, or submitting the required paperwork to the Registrar’s Office by 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 20, 2017. All students are encouraged to discuss their class status with the professor prior to withdrawing from the class.
