Student Code of Conduct Statement

The student is expected to follow the SLCC Student Code of Conduct.


General Education Statement (if applicable)

This course fulfills the [category] requirement for the General Education Program at Salt Lake Community College. It is designed not only to teach the information and skills required by the discipline, but also to develop vital workplace skills and to teach strategies and skills that can be used for life-long learning. General Education courses teach basic skills as well as broaden a student’s knowledge of a wide range of subjects. Education is much more than the acquisition of facts; it is being able to use information in meaningful ways in order to enrich one’s life.

While the subject of each course is important and useful, we become truly educated through making connections of such varied information with the different methods of organizing human experience that are practiced by different disciplines. Therefore, this course, when combined with other General Education courses, will enable you to develop broader perspectives and deeper understandings of your community and the world, as well as challenge previously held assumptions about the world and its inhabitants.

  • Last day to drop with 100% refund
  • Last Day to Withdraw (with no refunds). Having a conversation with students and their progress may be helpful as this date approaches. A student may want to withdraw from your course rather than receive an E in your course if it appears the student will not pass.
  • Holidays when classes are not in session.
  • Last day of class and Reading Day

The date and time of your final is not on the academic calendar but can be found at Final exams schedule. Deviations from the final exam schedule MUST be approved by your associate dean.
