Some faculty members do not actually have a doctoral

This preview shows page 6 - 8 out of 9 pages.

Some faculty members do not actually have a Doctoral degree, but the equivalent of one in their respectivefields, such as the JD (law faculty), or an MFA (Master of Fine Arts). In that case, using “Professor” and the lastname is appropriate.If the instructor is a graduate student or teaching assistant, then the courtesy title is “Ms.” or “Mr.” unless, again,s/he asks you to call him/her something else.
If you are uncertain, err on the side of caution: “Professor” is always a safe option.Do NOT call a facultymember byhis/her first name unless directed to do so.Do not hesitate to ask what the title is if you are unclear, or better yet, look up their profile through the UTAwebsite to confirm what is their highest degree.In case of Emergencies: Contacting Faculty Members (Face-to-Face, Email or Phone)If an emergency arises – accident, death in the family, etc., contact the Office of Student Affairs, who willcontact all your faculty members and explain the situation.Do not expect faculty members to acknowledge as excused absences such things as visiting a new niece, awedding, etc. Those absences are for personal reasons, regardless of how close is your family.Do not expect faculty members to excuse absences from being caught in a snowstorm, unable to return tocampus. You chose to leave campus, and you have to accept the consequences. Most faculty members are prettysympathetic, but you should be prepared.Don’t be offended if a faculty member asks to see a funeral program – faculty experience students who try to getout of classes illegitimately. Be sure to return to campus with one and be polite if asked for it.Drop Policy:Students may drop or swap (adding and dropping a class concurrently) classes through self-service inMyMav from the beginning of the registration period through the late registration period. After the late registration period,students must see their academic advisor to drop a class or withdraw. Undeclared students must see an advisor in theUniversity Advising Center. Drops can continue through a point two-thirds of the way through the term or session. It is thestudent's responsibility to officially withdraw if they do not plan to attend after registering.Students will not beautomatically dropped for non-attendance. Repayment of certain types of financial aid administered through theUniversity may be required as the result of dropping classes or withdrawing. For more information, contact the Office ofFinancial Aid and Scholarships ().Disability Accommodations:UTArlington is on record as being committed to both the spirit and letter of all federalequal opportunity legislation, includingThe Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), The Americans with DisabilitiesAmendments Act (ADAAA),andSection 504 of the Rehabilitation Act.All instructors at UT Arlington are required by lawto provide “reasonable accommodations” to students with disabilities, so as not to discriminate on the basis of disability.
