Students need to complete any work missed by the next class period, or by instructor arrangement.

Grading / Evaluation Policy:

Depending on the course, the instructor will supply a point based grading system or a scoring rubric to set “a standard of performance” to communicate the expectations of quality around specific exercises or projects.

In order to receive a grade for the course, all projects / exercises must be completed and received on the server by the end of the quarter. In order to receive a passing grade, at least one project has to meet the final design due date.

Some courses are in sequence. If you receive a failing grade in a course, you may have to come back the following year to complete the SFCC Graphic Design A.A.S. degree.
