    Information to be included on the Instructor’s Course Syllabi:

    ; Disability Statement: Baton Rouge Community College seeks to meet the

    needs of its students in many ways. See the Office of Disability Services to

    receive suggestions for disability statements that should be included in each


    ; Grading: The College grading policy should be included in the course syllabus.

    Any special practices should also go here. This should include the instructor’s

    and/or the department’s policy for make-up work. For example in a speech

    course, “Speeches not given on due date will receive no grade higher than a

    sixty” or “Make-up work will not be accepted after the last day of class.”
