6 Perform automatically a compete assessment of trauma and medical s Instructor's Requirements Program/Discipline Requirements: If applicable The HCC EMS Program Grading scale: A B C F- Below 75 Class Attendance: All lecture classes, labs, and clinical require mandatory attendance. Class/Lab attendance is checked daily. If a student misses more than 10% of the didactic course the student will be dropped for excessive absences (time will count hour for hour). If time missed is due to medical illness the department will require a signed physician clearance to reenter the program. Texas Department of State Health Services requires all students meet / attend and complete all class / clinical hours to be considered complete in the program. If the student is absent or tardy they MUST contact their lead EMS Instructor prior to the start of class or clinical. Any student that is Absence Without Leave (AWOL) may be dismissed from the program immediately pending Lead instructor and Department chair decision. Missed class time: When any time is missed the student will do the following to allow for continuance in the program: (this will not serve as make-up time time missed is time missed.) If the student misses class time he / she will be required to completely define, differentiate, describe, explain, etc. the core cognitive objectives assigned by the instructor over the information missed. The objectives are listed at the beginning of each chapter of the required textbook. Work will be turned into the instructor at the start of the next class date. Tardiness (classroom): Tardy will be defined as missing less than 15 minutes of class. After 15 minutes the doors to the classroom will be locked and the student will not join the class until the instructor gives the class a break. Three (3) tardies will count as 2 hours missed from the program and will be considered chonic tardiness. The student may be dismissed from the program pending the Lead instructor and Department chair decision. Skills Lab missed time: When any time is missed the student will do the following to allow for continuance in the

7 program: (this will not serve as make-up time time missed is time missed.) The HCC Lead instructor will have an HCC skills instructor contact the student. The skills instructor will set a time / date / location to meet with the student so the skills practice can occur (within a week of the time missed). The student will pay the instructor at a rate of $30.00 per hour. Tardiness (skills lab): Tardy will be defined as missing less than 15 minutes of class. If the student misses more that 15 minutes of skills lab the student will be required to meet with an HCC skills instructor for a one (1) hour session. The HCC Lead instructor will have an HCC skills instructor contact the student. The skills instructor will set a time / date / location to meet with the student so the skills practice can occur (within a week of the time missed). The student will pay the instructor at a rate of $30.00 per hour. HCC Grading Scale: A = points per semester hour B = 89-80: C = 79-70: D = 69-60: 3 points per semester hour 2 points per semester hour 1 point per semester hour 59 and below = F 0 points per semester hour FX (Failure due to non-attendance) 0 points per semester hour IP (In Progress) W (Withdrawn) I (Incomplete) AUD (Audit) 0 points per semester hour 0 points per semester hour 0 points per semester hour 0 points per semester hour IP (In Progress) is given only in certain developmental courses. The student must reenroll to receive credit. COM (Completed) is given in non-credit and continuing education courses. FINAL GRADE OF FX: Students who stop attending class and do not withdraw themselves prior to the withdrawal deadline may either be dropped by their professor for excessive absences or be assigned the final grade of "FX" at the end of the semester. Students who stop attending classes will receive a grade of "FX", compared to an earned grade of "F" which is due to poor performance. Logging into a DE course without active participation is seen as non-attending. Please note that HCC will not disperse financial aid funding for students who have never attended class. Students who receive financial aid but fail to attend class will be reported to the Department of Education and may have to pay back their aid. A grade of "FX" is treated exactly the same as a grade of "F" in terms of GPA, probation, suspension, and satisfactory academic progress. To compute grade point average (GPA), divide the total grade points by the total number of semester hours attempted. The grades "IP," "COM" and "I" do not affect GPA.

8 Health Sciences Programs Grading Scales may differ from the approved HCC Grading Scale.
