Disabilities:  Students whose disabilities fall within the “Americans with Disabilities Act” should inform me as soon as possible of any special needs.  Students with a learning disability should inform me, preferably after contacting the Office of Adaptive Needs Program (Trojan Center 215, 670-3221).  Various accommodations are available through the Adaptive Needs Program.


Use of any electronic device by students in the instructional environment is prohibited unless explicitly approved on a case-by-case basis by the instructor or by the Office of Disability Services in collaboration with the instructor.  Cellular phones, pagers, and other communication devices may be used for emergencies, however, but sending or receiving non-emergency messages is forbidden by the University.  Particularly, use of a communication device to violate the Troy University “Standards of Conduct” will result in appropriate disciplinary action (See pp. 42-52 of the Oracle.)
