AHBS Lecture and Laboratory Policies and Procedures

Keep for future reference

  1. Students are expected to read, know and follow the Code of Conduct as described in the Student Handbook at all times. You may obtain your copy from the Office of Student Personnel Services in Bowne Hall.
  2. Honesty and integrity in all aspects of student life are expected. Any behavior contrary to the Code of Conduct will be dealt with according to the Student Handbook. Academic dishonesty is a very serious offense and will be treated according to the published guidelines and college policies.
  3. Attendance is expected at all classes - both lecture and laboratory. It is your responsibility to "make-up" the work missed in lecture. Laboratories are almost impossible to "make-up" and every effort should be made to avoid absences. In addition, please make every effort to be on time for class, to minimize distraction to others. This is especially important in laboratory since important protocol and safety information is given at the beginning of each lab.
  4. Make-up lecture exams are a privilege, not a right. Please remember that make-ups are only offered with advance notice for legitimate emergencies that can be verified. It is up to you to notify the instructor in advance and provide the instructor with valid proof for having missed the exam. Make-up exams are scheduled at the instructor's convenience and usually are a different format and time than the regularly scheduled exams.
  5. All cell phones and other electronic devices should be turned off in the laboratory and classrooms. In cases of "expected emergencies" ask the instructor for the proper procedure.
  6. In compliance with SUNY and OSHA requirements, no food or drink is allowed in the labs at anytime. This will be strictly enforced. Personal property not required for the lab should be stowed in the cubicles provided for this purpose.
  7. All laboratory equipment and supplies are the property of Dutchess Community College. Please treat them better than you would if they were yours. We do not want you to have to replace any broken or wasted material.
  8. Protective gear must be worn for appropriate laboratories. Any wet lab requires the use of eye protection. If you do not have your own, you must use the goggles we provide. You may be expelled from the lab for noncompliance.
  9. Any bodily fluids, or materials contaminated with bodily fluids must be "red bagged" for proper disposal. Do not lay contaminated material on the lab surfaces. If you suspect any contamination, glove and immediately wipe all surfaces with the disinfectant provided in the laboratory.
  10. Do not touch broken glass with your skin. Glass should be swept up and placed in the blue and white broken glass containers in each room. Never reach into a broken glass container.
  11. Any accidents must be reported to college personnel.
  12. Many students share our equipment and materials. Please be considerate of others. Scheduled classes have first priority on all equipment and materials.
  13. Study times and rooms are subject to change. Check with college personnel before you count on study availability. The weeks that lab exams are being given will have greatly restricted access to time, rooms and material.
  14. Learning is fun! Enjoy the laboratories safely please.


I have read the above information, and any questions regarding these policies and procedures have been answered to my satisfaction.

I understand and agree to follow these policies and procedures for the duration of my enrollment in this laboratory course.
