Catalog 2017-2018

Use of Personal Electronic Devices

The college does not allow students to operate cellular phones, smartwatches, tablets, laptops, portable radios, IPods, MP3 players, cassette or CD players, hand-held electronic games, and other similar devices inside classrooms, laboratories, libraries, auditoriums, testing facilities, training rooms, or any other college-owned/operated facility where instruction or testing is taking place. Without the explicit permission of instructors, students may not activate the built-in speaker of any computer in any campus facility. Students must turn cell phones to vibration mode when inside a campus-owned/operated facility; however, students must turn cell phones or smartwatches off while taking tests, quizzes, or exams. Students may operate portable recording devices to record classroom lectures if their instructors grant prior approval. When outside, students may play audio devices such as tape/CD players, portable radios, cell phones, IPods, MP3 players, or radios inside vehicles at a volume that does not offend or distract others.
