  10. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

    Regular, punctual attendance is required for all classes in the Cosmetology/Barber program. The Cosmetology faculty believes that attendance and punctuality is required at every session of each course for which the student is enrolled. Therefore, you MUST be present at your assigned time. An attendance policy is included in every course syllabus. When unavoidable circumstances make attendance impossible, students must provide a satisfactory explanation of their absences to their professor verbally and in writing. Unavoidable circumstances are considered but not limited to: accidents, death, and hospitalization of immediate family members and court ordered subpoenas.

    As an NMJC Cosmetology/Barber program student, you will be expected
    to maintain a minimum of 90% attendance for the semester. You will be dropped from the program if you are absent for more than 6 days (48 hours) this semester.
    A “tardy” will be defined as:
    • missing a total of ½ day (4 hours in total).
    • Two (2) tardies will equal 1(one) full absence.
    When an NMJC Cosmetology/Barber student is absent, he/she will receive a recorded
    absence, against the 90% attendance requirement.
    If you are not present for roll call you will be counted tardy on your professionalism grade. This will also affect your attendance hours as the time clock records in 15 minute increments.

    Clinic experiences are a vital component of the Cosmetology/Barber education. Clinic absences are not acceptable. If the student is absent the clinic instructor must be personally notified at least one hour prior to the start of each day. If a student fails to notify the instructor prior to the absence, the student will receive written counseling.

    The Cosmetology faculty does not accept make-up work. The student will be given the opportunity to retake a failed exam (except for mid terms, finals) (1) one time in the testing center. Your highest grade will be recorded. You will have

    The student must have satisfactorily completed the practical and theoretical curriculum requirements set forth by New Mexico Junior College. Those requirements must include documentation that the student has satisfactorily completed each unit of study prescribed by the board in the applicable course of study.

    Students may not be called from a scheduled theory class to perform services on the public.

    See also NMJC policy for:

    Attendance, classroom conduct, academic honesty, grade distribution, food and drink, smoking and children in the classroom.

  11. GENERAL/MISCELLANEOUS

    Students will be held responsible for the information on these pages.

    Academic Honesty
    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 specialneeds@nmjc.edu.

    Attendance Policy
    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.

    Cell Phones/Pagers
    All cell phones and pagers must be turned off when the student is participating in any lecture, laboratory, or other learning activity.

    Classroom Conduct
    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.

    Plagiarism
    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.

    Tutoring Assistance
    Free tutoring services are available to all NMJC students through Brainfuse and the Academic Success Center located in Mansur Hall room 123 and 124.

    Withdrawal Policy
    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 Tuesday, November 21, 2016. All students are encouraged to discuss their class status with the professor prior to withdrawing from the class.
