Mandatory Syllabi Statements

The following statements should be included on all Course Syllabi:

Counseling Center: Any student experiencing mental or emotional issues who desires free, confidential, clinical counseling is encouraged to contact the SE Counseling Center at (580) 745-2988 to schedule an appointment during normal working hours Monday-Friday, 8:00AM to 5:00PM. For after-hours mental health emergencies, please call SE Campus Police at (580) 745-2911 or the Mental Health Crisis Hotline at 1- (800) 522-1090.

Disability Accommodations: Any student needing special accommodations due to a disability should contact the Office of Disability Services, GDJ Student Union Room 328 or call (580) 745-3036. It is the responsibility of each student who anticipates or experiences barriers to their academic experience to make an official request for disability related accommodations in a timely manner. If you have questions regarding disability accommodation process or policy please contact Tiffany Tate, for more information.

Equity and Non-Discrimination Statement:  Southeastern Oklahoma State University, in compliance with all applicable federal and state laws and regulations, does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, or status as a veteran in any of its policies, practices, procedures, or programs. This includes, but is not limited to: admissions, employment, financial aid, and educational services. Inquiries regarding non-discrimination and equity policies may be directed to: Michael Davis, Title IX Coordinator, (580) 745-3090, or

Academic  Dishonesty of any kind will not be tolerated. You may fail an assignment, fail the course or be expelled from the University for academic dishonesty. As a student, it is your responsibility to be familiar with and abide by The Student Code of Conduct, which may be viewed in the Student Handbook. Please note that your own original work is expected for all assignments that you submit. Ignorance is not generally accepted as an excuse.

Syllabi statement regarding Conversion of Onsite Classes to Online/Remote Format: Southeastern students should be aware that in the event of a University closure due to COVID19, onsite classes will be converted to an online/remote format. Students should plan ahead to ensure they have access to the computer equipment (either PC, MAC, or tablet), webcam, and internet connectivity to continue their classes in an online/remote format. Please read all your official Southeastern student emails as the transition from onsite to online/remote might require a reorganization in your personal situation. Students will be granted a 72-hour transition and grace period. Online classes will continue as scheduled without disruption. Wear a mask, stay safe, and contact your Instructor as the situation arises. These policies and procedures were updated on July 30, 2020 and are subject to change.

Syllabi Statement Regarding Face Coverings: Per the Southeastern Oklahoma State University guidance on face coverings on campus, in the instructional setting, faculty and students must wear face coverings. At the discretion of the instructor, to accomplish an educational objective as long as safety protocols are met (including ample distance, shielding and other measures), faculty and students may be authorized to temporarily remove face coverings. Students without coverings, or those who do not comply with the rules relating to face coverings, will not be able to participate in on-campus classroom activities. To request an ADA exception to this requirement, students should contact the Disability Services Office. Failure to comply with the face coverings requirement may result in the Instructor directing the student to leave the classroom. Any student asked to leave the classroom may be referred to the Office of Student Conduct. These policies and procedures were updated on July 23, 2020 and are subject to change.

Temporary COVID-19 Attendance Policy: We are facing an unprecedented situation in which all of us must be flexible and make prudent decisions in the best interest of our families, our campus, and our community. In light of this, Southeastern is temporarily establishing campus-wide course attendance guidelines as follows: Students who are sick or need to quarantine should not attend classes. Students will not be required to provide formal documentation from a health care provider and will not be penalized for COVID-19 related absences when proper notification to campus health officials is made in accordance with the guidelines stated below. (Illness Reporting Form)

Faculty will:

  • Notify students about important course information and delivery changes through Blackboard and campus email

Students should:

  • Provide notification to campus officials (Illness Reporting Form) if they have tested positive for COVID-19 or have to quarantine so we can confirm reported absence with instructors, monitor, and assist the campus community
  • Notify instructors in advance of the absence
  • Connect with that class through Zoom if the class session is being transmitted in a hybrid fashion
  • • Keep up with and/or make up missed classwork or assignments
  • Submit assignments digitally through Blackboard or other means as announced by your instructor
  • Work with their instructors to reschedule exams, labs, and other critical academic activities described in the course syllabus.
  • Check Blackboard and campus email daily to receive important announcements pertaining to the course

During this period, all faculty will establish assigned seating to facilitate roll-taking, and, if necessary, contact tracing. Additionally, we ask all members of the University community to be attentive to their health, and safeguard others, by following the CDC’s guideline to “stay home when you are sick.” You should stay home if you have symptoms. More information on what to do if you are sick is available at the CDC’s website. These policies and procedures were updated on July 24, 2020 and are subject to change.
