Teaching / Learning Strategies:
Activities include but are not limited to:
Attendance is crucial to your progress and will be taken at the beginning of every class.
The attendance policy is as follows:
3 Credit Course: More than 6 absences = 0.0
Two late attendances = one absence.
For an absence to be excused a student will need to communicate to their instructor via email prior to an absence.
Students need to complete any work missed by the next class period, or by instructor arrangement.
If the above criteria are not met the absence will be applied to the attendance policy.
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.
(Add link or copy paste your grading system here.)
In order to receive a grade for the course, all projects and 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 technology 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.
Note: This course syllabus is only for the quarter listed above and the faculty may make appropriate changes. Also, future syllabi for this course may be different.
