Course Policies

"There is no wisdom like frankness." - Benjamin Disraeli
 

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.
