Guidelines for Success
Attendance Requirements "Timeliness is a valuable asset to take to the job marketplace. The Department of Business has on-time attendance, on-time assignment completion and on-time make-up examinations as priority times in development of course requirements and evaluations. In this course, these issues of "timeliness" are addressed as follows: Repeated or extended absences will no doubt jeopardize your grade. In the case of extended illness or hospitalization, each case will be evaluated individually. When repeated or extended absences reach levels where successful completion of the course is jeopardized, and "excessive absence" report will be made to the counseling staff. An attempt by the staff is then made to contact the student to resolve any problems. Continued absenteeism may lead to administrative action. Attendance is important if you expect to do well in this class. It is the responsibility of each student to complete all assignments. Late points (10% of total points of assignment) will be assessed on assignments not turned in on time. The last date to withdraw from a class and obtain a refund, or the last date to withdraw from a class for a grade of W, varies depending upon the course length, start date, and ending date. Contact the KCC Registrar's office to determine the dates that apply to this course. Email Requirements All KCC students are provided with email accounts through the College server.
