CLASS ATTENDANCE POLICIES
The process of education takes many shapes. It can range from formal classroom instruction to one-on-one discussion to taking advantage of internships and research opportunities. Students are expected to attend all scheduled classes. However, the following policies do apply in situations where class attendance is an issue.
CONDUCT RELATED OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPT NOTATIONS
A notation will be added to the official Le Moyne College transcript of students found responsible for a violation of the College’s Code of Conduct that meets the definition of a crime of violence pursuant to the Federal Clery Act and is sanctioned with suspension, dismissal or expulsion. For a student that is suspended or dismissed, the transcript notation will read: “Suspended after a finding of responsibility for a code of conduct violation” or “Dismissed after a finding of responsibility for a code of conduct violation.”
A student may appeal, seeking removal of a transcript notation, (only for suspensions and dismissals) provided that the notation shall not be removed prior to one year after the conclusion of their sanction. Written appeals must be submitted to the Asst. Dean for Student Development one year after the conclusion of their sanction. The Asst. Dean, in consultation with other College officials, will review and accept or deny the appeal. The student will be notified in writing and, if the appeal is granted, the notation will be removed within ten business days upon receipt of the appeal.
For a student that is expelled, the transcript notation will read: “Expelled after a finding of responsibility for a code of conduct violation”. This notation is permanent and cannot be removed.
For a student that withdraws from the College while such cases are pending and declines to complete the conduct process, the transcript will read: “Withdrew with conduct charges pending”. This notation will stand until the conduct process is complete.
In all cases, an administrative hold will be placed on the student’s record. The hold will prevent future registrations, distribution of transcripts and/or diplomas and may only be removed with permission of the Asst. Dean for Student Development.
POLICY ON STUDENT ABSENTEEISM IN THE EVENT OF ILLNESS OR ACCIDENT
1. If illness or injury requires more than three consecutive days of hospital or home care, Health Services needs to be informed (445-4440). If the student has been treated by a doctor off campus, some documentation from that office will be expected. Health Services will then notify the registrar who will inform the student’s instructors, advisor and the appropriate academic dean. It is the student’s responsibility to contact his or her instructors, as soon as possible, to explain the absence and make arrangements for the completion of missed work or tests.
2. If emergency referrals for off-campus treatments or appointments for required physical examinations result in class absences, Health Services will issue the student written verification to present to instructors.
3. If infectious mononucleosis is diagnosed, the student will be issued verification and explanation of illness progression to discuss with involved instructors, advisor and the associate academic dean.
4. In the case of all other short-term health problems, including those treated by Health Services, it remains the student’s responsibility to contact his or her instructors to explain the absence and make arrangements for the completion of missed work or tests.
Faculty members may contact the Health Services for verification that a student was seen at the Health Services on a particular day and with a student’s written consent, this information will be discussed.
POLICY ON REPORTING ABSENCES DUE TO DEATH IN A STUDENT’S FAMILY
1. In the event of a student’s absence from class due to a death in his or her immediate family, the student (or member of his or her immediate family) is asked to contact the Campus Ministry before leaving campus or shortly thereafter. Please call campus ministry at (445-4110) and communicate the reason for the absence and date of expected return. When offices are closed, a message may be left on campus ministry’s voicemail. Campus Ministry will forward this information to the registrar who will notify the student’s instructors and advisor.
2. Upon returning to campus, it remains the students’ responsibility to contact his or her instructors and advisors to explain the absence and make arrangements for the completion of missed work and tests.
POLICY ON THE OBSERVANCE OF RELIGIOUS HOLIDAYS
As provided in New York State Education Law Section 224-a, any student who is unable to register for class, attend class, or participate in any examination, study or classwork requirements on a particular day because of his or her religious beliefs is eligible for an equivalent opportunity to register for classes or make up any missed examination, study, or classwork requirements, without penalties or additional fees. Students who require such an opportunity must contact the registrar (for registration) or their instructor (for examination, study or classwork requirements) at least two weeks in advance. A full copy of the College's policy on the observance of religious holidays can be found at either dean's office.
CHANGE OF ADDRESS/NAME
Permanent and local address changes and official name changes should be filed in the registrar’s office. Please note that a name change needs to be accompanied by an original legal document indicating a change has taken place (i.e., a marriage certificate or a divorce decree).
Students at Le Moyne College are not authorized to sign contracts or enter into any legally binding agreement on behalf of the College. If any student, regardless of age, signs any legal agreement or contract, the student does so as an individual and at the student’s own risk. The College is not a party to, nor legally responsible for, any such contract or agreement. A representative of a student club or organization may not act as an agent of the College and must not represent himself or herself as such an agent. The College will not be held responsible for any contract signed or any debt incurred by an individual student or student organization.
Cellular phones and other electronic devices shall not be used in a manner that causes disruption in the classroom, library, within other College buildings or facilities, or at College events (e.g., lectures, Masses, etc.). This includes abuse of cellular phones or electronic devices with photographic capability.
It is important that the capacity limit of 12 persons be observed in campus elevators. State laws prohibit smoking in elevators. In the case of a building emergency, the elevators should not be used. An out-of-order elevator should be reported immediately to the residence hall director and security. Tampering with elevators will result in disciplinary action.
FIRE AND EMERGENCY PROCEDURES
When the fire alarm is activated in any building on campus, it requires all occupants of that building to leave immediately. If a fire is discovered, evacuate the building and then contact the security office at ext. 4444.
HEALTH INSURANCE POLICY
The College requires every full-time undergraduate student to maintain and provide proof of adequate health and medical insurance coverage. The College will bill the student for health insurance coverage; if other coverage is already in place, the insurance fee can be waived online.
The College strongly advises all students and/or families to discuss procedures to be followed with their health maintenance or managed-care provider when they are out of their local service area.
Students should have their insurance card in their possession at all times.
All students will be issued an ID (“Dolphin Card”) through the Office of Campus Life and Leadership. All students must carry their ID cards with them at all times and present them to College personnel upon request. Loss of an ID card should be reported to the Office of Campus Life and Leadership. There is a $5 replacement fee. Students found responsible for any fraudulent use of a college ID card will be subject to disciplinary action and fined.
IMMUNIZATION RECORD POLICY
In compliance with New York state law, all students, full- or part-time, must complete the Meningitis Response Form and submit it to Health Services. In addition, those born after 1956 must present adequate proof of immunity to measles, mumps, and rubella. Registration will be delayed or denied until these records are approved and on file in the health office. Students that are not in compliance will receive a $100.00 fine.
INCLEMENT WEATHER NOTIFICATION
The operations and activities of a residential College such as Le Moyne College necessitate that the campus remain open with essential services available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Therefore, the College never fully closes or ceases operations. The default position in the event of inclement weather is that classes and all other activities will continue as scheduled, and cancellations or delays will be kept to an absolute minimum. Students, faculty, and staff should plan in advance accordingly.
In the event of extraordinary inclement weather conditions that affect the normal operations of the College, the information regarding the changes will be disseminated in three ways:
1. Outgoing message on the College’s main line: 315-445-4100
2. Posting on the College’s Web site, www.Le Moyne.edu
3. Utilization of the Heights Alert emergency notification system
All personal property whether in a student’s room, storage area or elsewhere on College property, shall be kept at the sole risk of the student. The College shall not be liable for damage to or loss of property of any kind which may be lost or stolen, damaged or destroyed by any cause. Students are advised to obtain insurance coverage necessary for such potential loss.
LIBRARY USE POLICY
The library serves both the College community and members of the greater community. As such, there are a number of important policies that help keep resources and services available to it’s patrons. For more information on the Library and these policies please refer to the library’s website.
Loan Periods for Books
All circulation transactions require a current Le Moyne ID. Undergraduate students may check out books for a period of three weeks, with one additional three-week renewal, unless the book is overdue or someone else is waiting for it. Junior and senior integral honors students, as well as graduate students, may check out books for one semester, with one renewal. For these students, books are due on the last day of classes.
Renewals for Books
Books may be renewed for one additional loan period either in person (with or without the books), by phone (x4325), or online by logging into My Account in the library online catalog. Books may only be renewed once, and then must be returned for at least one day to give others a chance to use them.
Loan Periods for Audiovisual Materials
Films and audio materials may be checked out for five days, with one renewal. Only Le Moyne College students, staff and faculty may check out these materials. A $5 fine per video will be assessed once it is more than one day overdue. Materials on reserve must be used in the library.
Overdue notices are sent to Le Moyne email accounts. Policies vary by patron and material type. For a full explanation, please see the library’s web page under “Policies”.
Once materials are eight days overdue, they cannot be renewed, but must be returned to the library, and can be checked out again the following day. If books are not returned within seven days of the due date, fines will be levied and circulation privileges are suspended.
Overdue materials and fines are sent to the bursar’s office before the end of the semester.
Students who have not registered for the following semester must return materials on the last day of classes, and after that date will not be able to check out materials until they are registered again. If former students, including alumni, wish to borrow materials from the library, they may do so by filling out a form and becoming a special patron.
Policies for this group of patrons differ from those of students, faculty, and staff, and may be found on the library Web page.
All patrons must adhere to the Patron Code of Conduct, which can be found on the library’s website, In respect for the rights of others, patrons should remember the following principles when using the facility and materials:
1. The library’s collections exist primarily to serve students. Prompt return of materials borrowed helps to ensure that as many students as possible will be able to use these collections.
2. The library strictly enforces New York State law [N.Y. Civ. Prac. Law, Section 4509 (Consol. 1982)] maintaining the confidentiality of circulation records and non-disclosure of a borrower’s name without consent of the borrower.
3. The first floor of the library is designed for computing and collaborative work while much of the second floor is designated as a quiet study area. Patrons should behave accordingly in these two separate zones.
4. Photocopiers and scanners are available for patrons to copy information in non-circulating materials such as periodicals, reference books, and course reserves. Patrons should keep in mind the regulations that delineate fair-use photocopying of copyrighted materials. These regulations are posted at the photocopiers.
5. To prevent damage to the library’s collections and furnishings, care should be taken when eating and drinking. Please dispose of your containers in the garbage receptacles located around the library.
6. The use of tobacco products is not allowed in the building.
7. Patrons should exit through the security gate at the library’s main exit. The library reserves the right to inspect belongings for library materials that have not been properly checked out. Individual cases of library theft or abuse of library property is referred to the student development office or the local police as appropriate
LOST AND FOUND
Found articles may be turned in to, and lost articles may be claimed at, the security office in Nelligan Hall. Unclaimed articles will be donated to a local charity after 45 days.
A limited number of lockers are available in the Campus Center, second floor. Commuter students can reserve a locker at the Office of Campus Life and Leadership. In the event of a fire, the College may find it necessary to break a lock. Students must empty their lockers at the conclusion of each academic year. Lockers are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.
MAINTENANCE OF PUBLIC ORDER
Supplement to The Right of Demonstration, Assembly and Protest adopted by the Le Moyne College board of trustees, summer 1969, and submitted to the state of New York in compliance with state law. If anyone or any group obstructs the officially sponsored activities of the College, if anyone or any group interferes with the maintenance of public order on the campus, if anyone or any group substitutes force for rational orderly persuasion, they will be dealt with accordingly by College officials. A disruption of public order, as understood by Le Moyne, is any action, incitement to action or provocation that interferes significantly with College operations; any action that interferes with the movement of individuals, the free expression of ideas by others or restraint by physical force; or any act that would legally constitute disorderly conduct or disturbance of the peace.
If it is determined that a disruption of College activity or a threat to the public has occurred, the following steps will be taken in order:
1. The participants will be informed of the specific nature of their violation and asked to cease and desist immediately. The participants will be asked to present their College ID cards. If they have none to present, they will be told that they are trespassers and will be treated as such by legal authorities if the disruption does not stop immediately.
2. If the disruption stops, all student participants will be told to appear before a hearing of the judicial board.
3. If the disruption continues after warning, the College has two options:
a. The Le Moyne College board of trustees or its designee will ask for a court injunction for trespass and/or disorderly conduct. When and if the injunction is secured, local law authorities will serve the injunction and treat all participants as trespassers under the law; or
b. Police will be called immediately and asked to stop the disruption with a minimum use of force.
4. If an injunction is secured, or if the police are called, and after the immediate problem is disposed of, the student participants will be referred to the asst. dean for student development.
Students with special medical needs should seek consultation and make proper arrangements with personnel from the Wellness Center for Health and Counseling.
Students are encouraged to designate an individual as an emergency contact (to be contacted by Le Moyne College in the event the student is officially reported as missing) by completing the requested information on their respective Housing Key Form or submitting the information to the Office of Campus Life and Leadership. Security will conduct an investigation into the whereabouts of any reported missing student. In any case where the student cannot be located or additional assistance is deemed necessary, Security will contact the local police department and the appropriate College officials. Once Le Moyne Security determines that a student has been missing for more than 24 hours, the following notification will occur:
1. If the missing student is under the age of 18, Le Moyne will notify the custodial parent or legal guardian;
2. If the missing student is 18 or older and has identified an emergency contact, Le Moyne will contact the emergency contact identified by the student.
Any concerns or questions regarding a student who is missing or appears to be missing should be referred to Campus Security.

Le Moyne College extends to its students and employees the privilege of parking on campus. That privilege brings with it the responsibility to adhere to all parking regulations outlined in this policy. It is the responsibility of all students, faculty, staff and visitors to read and follow these regulations. Failure to comply may result in a parking ticket being issued, the vehicle being towed at the owner/operator’s expense, suspension of on campus parking privileges and/or disciplinary action being taken by the College. Use of any Le Moyne College parking lot requires proper display of a valid parking permit. Obtaining the required permit does not guarantee a parking space. Lack of available spaces does not justify violating the parking regulations.
Le Moyne’s parking lots are not designed to accommodate driving a vehicle to and from classes, meals, meetings, club activities or athletics. A vehicle should be considered a means to get to and from campus, not various points around campus. The College is configured in such a way that our parking lots connect to sidewalks and pathways that are designed to accommodate pedestrian traffic throughout the campus.
Because of the severe winter conditions, it may become necessary for all students to remove their vehicles from parking lots when requested for snow removal (a 24-hour notice will be given). Vehicles that are not removed may be ticketed and towed
The College is not responsible for vandalism or theft from vehicles.
Student Parking Permits
All students bringing a vehicle to campus: resident, commuter, part time and graduate, must register their vehicles. Parking permits can be obtained online at: lemoyne.thepermitstore.com .

The $3.00 per day fee applies to students and their guests. All guests of students bringing a vehicle on campus are required to obtain a temporary parking permit at the Security Office.

Notices or posters should be posted only on bulletin boards in the administration or classroom buildings. Tape, staples or tacks may not be used to fasten notices to doors, moldings, woodwork, painted walls or windows.
Posters announcing an approved College or student group sponsored event will be approved provided the criteria set forth in this policy are met.

REPORTING DEATHS, EMERGENCIES, OR ILLNESSES
Deaths: Students who experience a death, in their immediate family are asked to notify the Office of Student Development. In turn, the Office of Student Development will notify the Registrar, Campus Ministry, or others, as appropriate.
Emergencies: Students who experience a personal or family emergency are asked to notify their RA, or the Office of Student Development , especially if the emergency requires the student to leave campus or not attend classes for a short period of time (e.g., two days or more). While the primary reason for this is to provide any support possible to the affected student, a secondary reason is for the student’s well being and safety. For example, a student who is not on campus can then be accounted for during an emergency.
Illnesses: Students who are sick or must undergo a medical procedure or testing should notify the Wellness Center. If necessary, the Wellness Center will coordinate with the primary care physician or specialist any follow up treatment. If follow-up is not necessary, the student’s medical records with the Wellness Center should be updated to reflect the illness or medical issue being addressed so that the medical history is accurate and proper care may be provided in the future.
Whenever a student will be off campus for a period of time, regardless of the reason, he or she should notify their RA or the Office of Student Development.
As the central office for non-academic matters involving students, the Office of Student Development will notify the Registrar, Campus Ministry, and the Wellness Center, as appropriate, of situations involving deaths, family or personal emergencies, or illnesses. However, in all situations, students should notify their professors if they will miss class. The only exception would be if the situation is so extraordinary as to make it impossible for the student to do this. Professors are responsible for their classes, and students must make the necessary arrangements for missed class time and assignments directly with their professors.
The Office of Student Development, Campus Ministry, and the Wellness Center, cannot provide notes excusing students from class and students should not ask for them. See policy on Student Absenteeism in the Event of Illness or Accident.
The Campus Security Office is charged to ensure the safety of the campus, minimize crime or other behavioral problems, and maintain an appropriate academic and residential environment. In doing so, they provide a wide array of services that go beyond the traditional or minimal roles of a security force. Campus Security is authorized to monitor, prevent, investigate, and report any violations of state or federal law and/or College regulations or standards of conduct on campus.
Le Moyne’s campus is patrolled regularly by uniformed officers. In addition, the campus is monitored by a closed-circuit television/camera system. Cameras are located outside and inside many campus facilities, including residence halls and academic buildings.
