  • 4.0 Policy

    Auditing Courses

     a)  Faculty or staff may attend classes offered by other faculty and should adhere to the rights and responsibilities of any college student.

     b)  Instructing faculty should be extended the courtesy of knowing in advance of colleagues wishing to audit the course.

    Taking Courses for Credit

    There are means available by which all faculty and staff can receive some form of tuition assistance or waiver for credit courses.  Refer to Human Resources Services Office.

    All faculty are expected to maintain a regular schedule of office hours for consultation with students.  The number of hours and the particular schedule are determined by the faculty member, both with the condition that they are sufficient enough and convenient enough to assure accessibility to students. 

    A suggested schedule would be at least one office hour for each class section taught on campus, the time of such hours to be distributed throughout the week as far as possible.  Special provisions should be made through appointments for students unable to meet with instructors at announced times.  The schedule of office hours should be posted outside instructors' offices and announced in class.

    Official campus office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; Monday through Friday.
