Classwork is project-based and each session’s work will build upon work done in the previous class session. Therefore, it is critical that you attend class regularly to be a full partner in this enhanced learning environment. Excellent attendance will be rewarded! If you miss 3 or fewer classes your final grade for this course will be increased by 5%.

It is each student’s responsibility to personally contact the instructor in advance if a class is going to be missed, regarding missed assignments.

Students are encouraged to contact the instructor if in the case he/she is not achieving their intended level of success. There may be several avenues open to the student to receive additional assistance (such as tutoring) to gain a better understanding of the course materials.

Students who need to withdraw must complete an official form and submit it consistent with college policy.
Incomplete grades are given only when an emergency prevents the student from completing a minor portion of the assignments of this course.

Late Work, Plagiarism
All students are expected to complete their own work by scheduled deadlines. While group work is encouraged, all assignments will be analyzed to ensure they are unique and individually created. In the case that plagiarism or cheating occurs, all involved students will receive 0 points for the project or assignment.

Students who are unable to complete an assignment by the assigned due date will not receive full points for that assignment. If you will not be able to complete an assignment by the assigned due date and have a valid excuse, the instructor reserves the right to extend the due date at his discretion.
