College Attendance Policy
At BMCC, the maximum number of absences is limited to one more hour than the number of
hours a class meets in one week. For example, you may be enrolled in a three-hour class. In that
class, you would be allowed 4 hours of absence (not 4 days). In the case of excessive absences,
the instructor has the option to lower the grade or assign an F or WU grade.

Academic Adjustments for Students with Disabilities
Students with disabilities who require reasonable accommodations or academic adjustments for
this course must contact the Office of Services for Students with Disabilities. BMCC is
committed to providing equal access to all programs and curricula to all students.

BMCC Policy on Plagiarism and Academic Integrity Statement
Plagiarism is the presentation of someone else's ideas, words or artistic, scientific, or technical
work as one's own creation. Using the idea or work of another is permissible only when the
original author is identified. Paraphrasing and summarizing, as well as direct quotations, require
citations to the original source. Plagiarism may be intentional or unintentional. Lack of
dishonest intent does not necessarily absolve a student of responsibility for plagiarism.

Students who are unsure how and when to provide documentation are advised to consult with
their instructors. The library has guides designed to help students to appropriately identify a
cited work.
