Procedure

ENTERING CLASSES IN SESSION Procedure

 

 

During the regularly scheduled meeting time for a course, announcements by students or others from outside the class may not be made unless the professor has authorized, in advance and in writing, that the announcement will be permitted.

 

Specifically, students may not interrupt a class to discuss matters unrelated to that course’s curriculum as defined by the instructor

 

  • unless invited or permitted to do so in advance by the instructor or
  • when a matter of significant overall college importance requires that an exception be made to this general policy by the President or his/her designee.

 

Normally, students should communicate with other students about non-academic announcements through posters and signs that meet college requirements, phone or e-mail “all calls” (arranged through the Dean of Students, when appropriate, either to all students or to all resident students).
