Cell Phone and Electronic Device Policy
Home > Academics > Academic Policies > Cell Phone and Electronic Device Policy
Classroom disruption by cell phones or other electronic devices is prohibited. All cell phones and similar electronic devices must remain turned off and out of sight for the duration of class. This includes headphones and Bluetooth devices. Electronic devices utilized in a learning context, such as laptops and language interpreters, may be permitted at the professor’s discretion. The use of electronic devices in class is a privilege, and should be used by students for course specific work only, not for social networking or any other activities. The professor reserves the right to ban their use at any time.
A student may face a zero and/or failure in the class if an electronic device is used for cheating during a test. Cheating at Dallas Baptist University is not tolerated and may result in expulsion.
