- You are required to spend one hour (60 min.) in the lab each week. This can be done
in one session or multiple sessions. You can come in any time during the hours listed
above for your class. Your instructor will get a weekly printout of the time you have
spent in the lab. If you have any questions about your lab time you may ask either
your instructor or the Language Lab Coordinator for clarification.
- To get credit for lab attendance, you must sign in and out on the attendance computer
using a valid student ID card and your CRN number every time you work in the lab. Please,
