Link to Class RubricClass Assessment:
Late Submission of Course Materials: Given the possibility of late adds and problems with ordering books, there is an automatic one-week grace period for the first week of work. Because grades are due immediately after the end of term, work may not be accepted after the last day of the term, Sunday night, week 8. Normally work is due at the end of the week that it is assigned unless otherwise indicated. Work submitted after the deadline is subject to up to a 5% per day penalty. Work that is more than a week late may not be accepted. Late penalties may be waved for medical and work emergencies, at the descretion of the instructor. If you anticipate problems finishing any work on time, contact your instructor to make arrangements prior to due date.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Academic Honesty:Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life.
