Classroom Rules and Regulations
Classes are held at a variety of locations on military installations and at civilian sites. You should confirm where your class will be held when registering for a course.
Regular attendance, and punctuality are expected in all classes. Worldwide instructional staff members determine the attendance policy that is appropriate for their individual class, and must share the criteria for attendance/participation with their students. Student’s physical attendance is required for classroom based face-to-face instruction, EagleVision Classroom, and any modality that has a classroom element with specific meeting days and times. Attendance is also required in EagleVision Home and any modality that has a specific meeting day and time. Watching playbacks is not considered class attendance. For students taking classes via online or asynchronous modalities, attendance may include criteria such as class participation, postings in discussion threads and responses to classmate postings in discussion threads. Faculty may weigh these elements as they feel appropriate to achieve their final grades. Faculty will record the last date of attendance for each student in each class.

Student Class Participation
Students enrolled in any class modality are expected to log in to their courses through the Worldwide Learning Management System (LMS) beginning the first day of the term and frequently throughout the term, up to and including the last day of the term.
On the first day of the term, students are expected to log in to review course materials, including the syllabus, as well as any announcements from the instructors. Instructors may post updates during the term. Posting on discussion threads, responding to other students’ posts, and other criteria may be counted for participation in any or all modalities. Log in on the last day of the term for review of final assignments, and to review any final changes/announcements from the instructor.
Flexible Classroom Instruction
Class times vary according to local students’ needs. At many teaching locations, classes meet once a week in the evenings; however, other scheduling arrangements, such as meeting weekends or twice a week, are not uncommon.
To enhance learning in the regular classroom, some courses are offered through a blend of classroom and online delivery. While the majority of the instruction occurs in the classroom, a portion of the course takes place online through activities such as guided discussion, group projects, and online assignments. Students have expressed high praise for the flexibility, reflection, and interaction that this instruction affords.
For classes held on military installations and at most civilian sites, the general rule is no eating, drinking, or tobacco use in the classroom. Please abide by rules posted in the classroom, conveyed by the instructor, or communicated by your local campus staff.
Bringing children or guests to class is not permitted.
Because classroom security conditions vary from location to location, students should be aware of their surroundings at all times. Please check with your local campus staff for any known security issues in the area. All security or safety issues and/or incidents should be reported immediately to your instructor or the campus location staff. Worldwide Emergency Preparedness Plans are posted in ERNIE.
Each instructor is entitled to post and enforce their own late policy.
