Notice Concerning the Possibility of Interruption of Instruction Due to a State of Emergency

Arkansas State University - Beebe reserves the right to adjust the mode of instructional delivery and the dates to included in the Academic Calendar due to a local, state, or national emergency, which includes issues related to COVID-19 Pandemic.

Academic Honesty Policy:

Dishonesty in any form--including plagiarism, turning in assignments prepared by others, and cheating on exams -- is not acceptable within the ASU-Beebe system. Please see Instructor syllabus for Academic Honesty policies specific to your course and the Student Handbook for the Student Code of Conduct.

Credit Hour Policy:

ASU-Beebe defines credit hour according to the federal standard. The credit hour value of a traditional course is calculated as follows: A clock hour of instructional time is the equivalent of 50 minutes of class time or 60 minutes of independent-study work; and a minimum of two hours of out-of-class work is expected for every hour (50 minutes) of instructional time.

For every course credit hour, the typical student should expect to spend at least three clock hours per week of concentrated attention on course-related work, including but not limited to, time attending class, as well as out-of-class time spent reading, reviewing, organizing notes, preparing for upcoming quizzes/ exams, problem solving, developing and completing projects, and other activities that enhance learning. Thus, for a three hour course, a typical student should expect to spend at least nine hours per week dedicated to the course.

Official College Communications:

ASU-Beebe student email is the official means of communication with students on all campuses. Important college-related information will be sent to individual ASU-Beebe student email accounts. Students are expected to check their email on a frequent and consistent basis in order to stay current with university communications.
