STUDENT OBLIGATIONS

ATTENDANCE
Attendance is required at all classes. No more than 2 absences per semester are allowed.

A student with numerous absences will not be given an internal grade (which constitutes 60% of the final grade) or may not be allowed to continue his English course that year/semester.


GROUND RULES

Lateness for class is unacceptable no matter what the reason may be. Students will not be allowed to enter the classroom after the first 10 minutes of the lesson. Therefore, they will be considered absent.
Other unacceptable behavior patterns:

  1. early departures from lessons

  2. cellular phones may not be switched on during lessons

  3. food and drink during a lesson

  4. switching class from one to another because of a student’s changing needs.

Once a student has signed up for a particular course with a specific instructor, he may not attend a lesson given at a different hour even if the instructor is the same. All of the class hours must suit the student. Otherwise, he should not be enrolled in that particular course.

CLASS ASSIGNMENTS


Homework will be assigned regularly and must be completed for the next lesson. If you were ill or in the army reserves and could not attend the lesson, you are expected to contact someone from your group in order to complete your homework assignment. Hand in the completed assignment immediately upon your return to class.

TESTS


If a student knows he will not be able to take a scheduled test, it is his responsibility to inform his instructor so that appropriate measures can be taken.

If a student has missed a test, it is his obligation to inform the instructor and explain his absence.



STUDENTS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS


All students with special needs (e.g. extra time, use of a tape, new immigrants up to 5 years in Israel, over 40’s) must provide documentation from Bar Ilan to validate their needs within the first 2 weeks of the course.
