Course Policies:

Missed Classes: The student is responsible for keeping up with the course schedule.  It is very easy to let days pass by without working on your course materials.  Although you can study any time of the week for the course, I suggest you set up certain times and days of a week to study for the course.  Missed or late assignments cannot be made up under any circumstances, but, with a reasonabe cause and adequate notice, an early assignment may be given.

Assignments: All assignments are due by the end of each class.  Late submission of assignments will not be accepted. No exceptions will be made.

Academic Dishonesty: Plagiarism and cheating are serious offenses and may be punished by failure on an exam, assignment, or project; failure in the course; and/or expulsion from the college. For more information, refer to the "Academic Dishonesty" policy in the college catalog or student handbook.

Need for Assistance: If you have any condition, such as a physical or learning disability, which will make it difficult for you to carry out the work as I have outlined it, or which will require academic accommodations, please notify me as soon as possible.

Posting of Grades: Final grades will not be posted. If you wish to have your final grade sent to you, please mail me a self-addressed, stamped envelope by the end of the quarter.
