Final semester grades are based on ten-point scale, NO CURVING, NO EXTRA CREDIT.

ATTENDANCE: Absences will have an adverse effect on your grade in the

following ways: missed test points, missed announcements concerning assignments and due dates, non-exposure to material not directly covered in text. There is no excuse for late assignments or missed tests.

ACADEMIC DISHONESTY: University policy will be followed for cases involving alleged academic dishonesty. Copying any part of another students assignment or exam is CHEATING. Allowing another student to copy is also CHEATING. Cheating earns an F for the course. Do your own work. No eating or drinking in the lab

CLASSROOM DECORUM: The following activities are considered unacceptable in the classroom: eating, drinking, use of tobacco, use of electronic equipment, use of beepers or phones, profanity, sleeping, acting in an unsafe manner, repeatedly talking without being recognized, habitual tardiness. No collaboration while doing assignments

F  Important Notes

 

         Programs are mandatory. Late work will be accepted but FIFTEEN points will be deducted for every day that it is late.

 

         Every student can use his/her E-Mail account (you can use your ISP

         account if you have one) to communicate with the instructor.

 

         If you are a qualified student with a disability seeking accommodations

         under the Americans with Disabilities Act, you are required to self-dentify

         with the Office of Disability Services, Room 203, Student Union. More information can be obtain at this web address,

         http://www2.selu.edu/StudentAffairs/DisabilityServices/

 

         The same applies to students with service/military assignments.

 

         It is your responsibility to drop the class.

 

         A student who misses an exam without an official excuse will be given a score of zero. Poor Planning on your part, does not necessitate an emergency on my part. If an excuse is valid and official, the lowest score of all exams will be awarded as a grade for the missed test.

 

         You are required to check MOODLE for any changes in the course
