The only excused reasons for missing class are personal or family illness or a death in the family. Please call me and leave a message if you cannot come to class. Vacations, job problems, and other classes, long illnesses or taking care of family members for a long time are unexcused and are not reasons for missing class. You will not be allowed to enroll next quarter if you:
· miss four unexcused classes this quarter;
· do not make progress;
· miss the pre or post CASAS test or other required assessments. These pre and post CASAS tests are very important. You cannot be a student in this program unless you take all of the pre and post tests.

Bellevue Community College’s “Affirmation of Inclusion” is posted in each classroom and states that we will all treat one another, students, faculty, staff members and administrators, with respect and dignity even if we don’t agree philosophically. This supports the idea of free speech in a free society—we have the right to express unpopular ideas as long as we don’t show disrespect for people who might not believe the same as we do. Appropriate student behavior is expected as outlined in the Arts and Humanities student expectations guidelines.
