 Student Success: In this class a passing grade is based on three things: Attendance, turning in the assignments, and turning in an Education Plan that is signed by your advisor (You cannot pass the class without an Ed Plan). 

Text: The text for this class is available at the bookstore and costs a little less than ten dollars. Although we will not be following the text in order, we will be using some of the assignments, and this little book has a ton of good information for students in it. So I recommend you buy it, but I do not require it.

 Students With Disabilities: The Center for Accessibility Resources provides reasonable accommodations, academic adjustments, and auxiliary aids, to ensure that qualified students with disabilities have access to classes, programs, and events at LBCC. Students are responsible for requesting accommodations in a timely manner. To receive appropriate accommodations from LBCC, please give the Center for Accessibility Resources advance notice of your disability and specific needs, as some accommodations take days to weeks to have in place. Contact the Accessibility coordinator in RCH-105, 6500 SW Pacific Blvd. Albany, Or. 97321. or call 541-917-4789, or use Telecommunications Relay TDD at 1-800-735-2900 or 1-800-735-1232.

 Student Instructional Services: There are instructional support services at the Learning And Career Center (Counseling, Career Services, Scholarship help, testing, study desks, computers for student use, arrangements for CFAR meetings), the Writing Help Desk, and the Math Help desk. They are all located at the top of the stairs at Benton Center. 

Counseling Services: Counselors are available in the Advising Center in Takena Hall at the Albany Campus; and at the Learning and Career Center at Benton Center, in Corvallis.

Personal Services: Any student who has difficulty affording groceries or food, or who lacks a safe and stable place to live, is urged to contact a Student Resource Navigator in the Single Stop Office (T-112): Amanda Stanley, stanlea@linnbenton.edu, 541-917-4877. The navigator can connect students to resources. Furthermore, please talk with your instructor if you are comfortable doing so. This will enable them to provide any resources that they may have.

Statement of Inclusion: The LBCC community is enriched by diversity. Everyone has the right to think, learn, and work together in an environment of respect. tolerance, and goodwill. We will work toward creating a community without prejudice, intimidation, or discrimination.
