Late Submission of Course Materials:
CLASS POLICY: Unless otherwise stated, all work and exams are to be accomplished individually.  Anyone caught Cheating will receive a Zero (0) for the class.  In-class work, quizzes, and participation points normally cannot be made up.  Anything turned in late will be reduced 20%, with 10% per day reduction in points accumulated.  You may turn in assignments to the Park Office if you cannot attend class to avoid the late penalties.

If you miss an examination, a valid reason must be provided and must be pre-arranged with the Instructor.  If pre-arrangements are not made or the reason is invalid, an automatic 10% reduction in exam points will occur, along with a 10% late reduction, and additional late points accumulating.  The exam MUST be made up by the next scheduled class period, or it will result in a Zero (0) for the test.  You should call the Instructor if you know you will miss a "normal" class (i.e.  class when there is not a test or presentation).  You are responsible for getting notes from a fellow student, if you miss a class.
