This information sheet is subject to change. You will be notified in class if updates are available. You will not be given a new "hard copy". It is your responsibility to review the changes "on line" and print a copy for your own use.
Please check the my "NEWS PAGE" (News.html ) before each class meeting in order to obtain reminders and assignments. Practice exercises and problems will be listed at appropriate times at this location.
When any student receives excessive unexcused absences (e.g., ten
of the total classes) prior to the established withdrawal date, the
may be withdrawn with a grade of "W."
For off campus classes, lecture will resume at a predetermined time after the test is administered.
It is the responsibility of the student to insure that all required work is done. Therefore, you must let me know if you need to schedule a make-up exam.
If you are a graduating senior, it is your responsibility to notify me as your grade must be turned in early. Graduating seniors may need to take the final exam early. If this is necessary the exam will be given at one of the approved times.
If you miss the final exam, and you do not notify me before the last day that grades are due, you will receive a grade of zero for that exam.
If you miss a scheduled make-up exam, you will receive a grade
of zero on that exam.

Borderline grades will be closely examined and may slightly alter the above scale.
Final course grades will be posted on line only to be viewed via LEONet.
Graded work (reports, tests, quizzes) will be returned to the student as soon as possible. It is the responsibility of the student to retain all graded work in their possession until course grades are finalized at the end of the semester. In the event of a grade dispute, the student may be required to surrender all graded work for grade verification.

The university catalog should be consulted about degree credit for
Chemistry and Physics courses (for instance, credit cannot be obtained
for both Chemistry 101 and 121) and for credit for both lab and
The regulations of the university will be followed in order to provide an environment that is conducive to learning.
It is University policy that the classroom is not a place for children, and that students are not to bring their family members for day care or baby sitting.
Free discussion, inquiry, and expression is encouraged in this class. Classroom behavior that interferes with either (a) the instructor's ability to conduct the class or (b) the ability of students to benefit from the instruction is not acceptable. Examples may include routinely entering class late or departing early; use of beepers, cellular telephones, or other electronic devices; repeatedly talking in class without being recognized; talking while others are speaking; or arguing in a way that is perceived as "crossing the civility line." In the event of a situation where a student legitimately needs to carry a beeper/cellular telephone to class, prior notice and approval of the instructor is required. Classroom behavior which is deemed inappropriate and cannot be resolved by the student and the faculty member may be referred to the Office of Judicial Affairs for administrative or disciplinary review as per the Code of Student Conduct which may be found at http://www.selu.edu/admin/stu_affairs/handbook.
VII. DISASTER RECOVERY PLAN:
In the event that classes are missed as a result of an emergency (declared such by the University), the missed material will be covered by assignment of out of class activities. These activities will include but will not be limited to reading assignments in the text book and on line assignments if applicable. It is understood that depending on the type of disaster, certain students will not have internet access. This will be taken into account as assignments may be given after return to normal operations.
VIII. THE ADA.:
The University policy concerning e-mail will be followed. Please check your Webmail daily. Only Southeastern's e-mail addresses will be used for official correspondence. Messages from other than your officially assigned e-mail address may not receive a response.X. ACADEMIC INTEGRITY:
