Local students are required to take tests and retake tests in the Testing Center, AQ 002, or at the Testing Center’s Delaware, Dublin, Gahanna or Westerville locations. (Please check the hours of each location.) Students signed up with Disability Services may schedule with that office to take tests in their testing area. Students who live outside Columbus State’s service area must arrange a testing location in their area. To do this, please follow the instructions at

Students must visit the CSCC Testing Center, or the arranged testing site, in accordance with the dates listed on the Assignment Schedule. All students are expected to make contact with the instructor once each week. This may be accomplished by taking a test, turning in homework, or emailing/calling the instructor. Students who fail to make contact risk being reported to financial aid for nonattendance.

As an enrolled student at Columbus State Community College, you have agreed to abide by the Student Code of Conduct as outlined in the Student Handbook. You should familiarize yourself with the student code. Columbus State Community College expects you to exhibit high standards of academic integrity, respect, and responsibility. Any confirmed incident of misconduct, including plagiarism and other forms of cheating, will be treated seriously and in accordance with College Policy and Procedure 7-10.

It is Columbus State policy to provide reasonable accommodations to students with documented disabilities. If you would like to request such accommodations because of a physical, mental, or learning disability, please contact the Department of Disability Services, 101 Eibling Hall, 614.287.2570 (V/TTY).

Columbus State Community College is committed to assessment (measurement) of student achievement of academic outcomes. This process addresses the issues of what you need to learn in your program of study and if you are learning what you need to learn. The assessment program at Columbus State has four specific and interrelated purposes: (1) to improve student academic achievements; (2) to improve teaching strategies; (3) to document successes and identify opportunities for program improvement; (4) to provide evidence for institutional effectiveness. In class you are assessed and graded on your achievement of the outcomes for this course. You may also be required to participate in broader assessment activities.

Columbus State is required by federal law to verify the enrollment of students who participate in Federal Title IV student aid programs and/or who receive educational benefits through the Department of Veteran’s Affairs. It is the responsibility of the College to identify students who do not commence attendance or who stop attendance in any course for which they are registered and paid. Non-attendance is reported quarterly by each instructor, which results in a student being administratively withdrawn from the class section. Please contact the Financial Aid Office for information regarding the impact of course withdrawals on financial aid eligibility.

In the event of severe weather or other emergencies which could force the College to close or to cancel classes, such information will be broadcast on radio stations and television stations. Assignments due on a day the College is closed will be due the next scheduled class period. If an examination is scheduled for a day the campus is closed, the examination will be given on the next class day. Students who reside in areas which fall under a Level III emergency should not attempt to drive to the College even if the College remains open. Students who miss a class because of weather-related problems when the class is held as scheduled should contact the instructor as soon as possible for instructions regarding make-up testing and/or assignments. In the event the College is forced to close during Final Examination Week, exams scheduled for the missed date will be rescheduled. In that event, refer to the Blackboard site for specific information.

The instructor will pick up tests from the Testing Center at least once each week. All tests and homework will be graded within one week and the scores will be entered in the Blackboard grade book. The graded tests may be reviewed in the Developmental Education Reading/Writing Lab in AQ 214. Tests taken at regional campus locations may take 2-3 days to be returned to main campus; out-of-city tests may take significantly longer.

Emails and phone calls will be responded to within two business days. Any preplanned instructor absences will be posted in the announcements on the Blackboard site. Students must use their CSCC email accounts when corresponding with the instructor, and students should check their CSCC email accounts regularly.

Real and virtual (online) office hours are listed under the “Course Information” button.

Incompletes may be given only when the following conditions are present: (1) the student has reasons beyond his or her control, such as having a car accident, a death in the immediate family, or being ill or hospitalized; (2) the situation is documented; and (3) the student has completed 3/4th of the coursework and has a minimum passing grade of C. Students must apply for incompletes and the signature of the chairperson must be obtained.

If you decide to drop this course, you must do so officially. You can withdraw by calling Records and Registration. Failure to officially withdraw will result in a grade of zero for all uncompleted assignments. There are allowances made for dropping courses in some financial aid packages. See a counselor for more information.

For example, a woman was unable to establish that volunteer activities at her church fell within the ground of creed under the Code. 47 Managing a children’s day camp put on by her church as a fundraiser was not religious in nature nor was it found to be required as a tenet of her faith. The fact that the activities were at her church were not sufficient to find that they were related to her creed.
