Personal or family travel plans are not deemed as exceptional circumstances.

Attendance and Preparation Policies

Face to Face and Hybrid

Students who miss class to participate in a co-curricular activity must have written permission (e-mail accepted) from a coach/director and must make prior arrangements with the instructor to take an examination or complete an assignment scheduled for that day. 

Regular (daily or weekly) online work is a key element for student success in an internet-based class.  Students must complete the first assignment by the designated deadline to document participation in the course.  The instructor will drop any student who fails to complete an assignment by the deadline provided in Canvas.

Although the instructor may drop a student from the class for insufficient participation, the responsibility for dropping a class belongs to the student. Insufficient participation is defined as not logging in and completing assignments for the equivalent of two consecutive weeks.  If you are unable to complete the course, you should formally drop it.

General Expectations for Students:

The Navarro College Cosmetology rules of compliance and behavior are similar to those you will encounter during your career.

As adults, all students are individually and collectively responsible for their behavior and are fully accountable for their actions.  Lack of acknowledgment of specific policies will not be an excuse for breaking any Navarro College or Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) laws and rules. Students are required to demonstrate a professional attitude at all times

General classroom/comportment/guidelines and rules will be reviewed on the first day of class.  Violations of any, or a combination of these rules, will lead to points deducted from the professionalism grade, and may incur warnings, probation, or permanent dismissal based upon Navarro College policy.
