You must be on time to be counted as present and you must be in class to receive returned assignments. Otherwise, you may email me for your grade or come by my office. Classroom Behavior: The time spent in the classroom is time paid for by you, your parents, etc. Be respectful of your fellow students who have also paid for this time. Interruptive talking, cell phone use, incessant leaving of the classroom, sleeping on one’s desk, or eating is not allowed during class. Disruptive students and/or students who retard the learning process will be asked to leave the classroom. Persistent problem students will be dealt with according to university policies. General Instructions: It is critical in business and particularly so in management, that businesspersons pay attention to detail, follow instructions, and be professional. In order to encourage the development of such behavior, any lack of professionalism or deviation from instructions, written or verbal, may generate a penalty.
