Personal Electronic Communication Devices
JSU Home » Arts and Sciences » Personal Electronic Communication Devices

All forms of personal electronic communication devices must be out of sight and in the power-off mode for class and testing periods unless the instructor has given prior consent for academic use in the class. During a testing period in class, any use of a personal electronic communication device, without the prior consent of the instructor, constitutes prima-facie evidence of academic dishonesty with no right of grade appeal. If the instructor observes the device, the presumption is that cheating has occurred and a grade of "F" will be assigned for that exam, quiz, etc.
