Failure to notify the instructor of an absence in advance when either an exam or homework is due will result in a ZERO (F) for the exam or work assignment. The greatest learning experience, for all of us, will occur with full class participation. (Online version of Attendance Policy: Although this online course has no formal attendance hours or a physical location, you are responsible for meeting all deadlines for assignments, group discussions, projects/cases and exams. You will be expected to remain in touch with the course instructor, via email, throughout the course and to participate in the required group discussions. Be aware that technology glitches do occur and that this does not relieve you of the responsibility for maintaining contact and meeting all deadlines. If you cannot reach the instructor by email, please use the phone) INCOMPLETE POLICY: You may request the grade of “I” (Incomplete) after the mid-point of the course when unexpected circumstances, such as illness or military service, make it impossible for you to complete the remaining work by the end of the semester. You must, however, be passing the course with a “C” or better at the mid-point of the course. The purpose of an incomplete, therefore, is not to repeat the entire course but to complete no more than 50% of the grade. It is your responsibility to initiate this process, but an Incomplete is assigned solely at the instructor’s discretion. Check the College Catalog for the entire policy. Appropriate Student Behavior: One of the College’s goals is to See Issues from Multiple Perspectives. Therefore, part of this class will involve hearing and reading perspectives different from your own. Everyone in class has a right to learn and express their views in a comfortable environment, so please be considerate of others' rights to hear, take notes or exams, express their ideas and participate in the class. College policy 5420A states that "the College can immediately suspend or dismiss a student for disciplinary reasons if the college considers the student's actions detrimental to its educational purposes." Academic Dishonesty: Academic dishonesty of any kind will not be tolerated. Cheating can result in an “F” for the course. In this course, academic dishonesty includes, but is not limited to, unapproved assistance during exams, plagiarism or other use of published material without complete citations, or fabrication of referenced material. Cooperative group study for all group activities, class preparation, and exam preparation is strongly encouraged and shall not be construed as academic dishonesty. Any questions regarding potential violations or questionable behavior should be directed to the instructor for clarification.
