Course Policies

Attendance

The very nature of this class requires attendance.  Inevitably, unforeseen emergencies arise that necessitate missing a scheduled class.  In order to avoid penalizing any student who must, for some reason, be absent, the following policy exists:

  • Students are held responsible for information covered in the session missed.  Notes should be obtained from fellow classmates, not the professor.  Excessive absences (more than 3) will result in a course grade reduction.  If your involvement in university-sponsored activities requires that you miss certain class period, then you must provide the professor with a written calendar of the days you will miss.
Plagiarism

All work should be the product of the student’s individual effort.

Written work

All daily work and major papers should be typed and conform to the UWGB writing policy guidelines.  This is one mark of professionalism.

Extra credit

I do not assign and will not grade extra credit.

Late work

Major projects may be turned in late with a penalty of one letter grade per day.  Daily assignments cannot be made up. You will receive a “ 0” for the day.

Grading Scale:

All grading will be done on a “0 - 100%” scale which translates into the following letter grades:

  A   AB B BC C D F
92%+ 89 - 91% 82 - 88% 79 - 81% 70-78% 60 - 69% Below 59%
