carelessness or ignorance. Students who are uncertain about proper documentation
of sources should consult their instructors.”

the full class period. Absenteeism and tardiness, regardless of cause, are a
threat to academic achievement. Classes missed for legitimate reasons (e.g.,

at the determination of the instructor; however, “excused” students absent from
classes are responsible for all materials covered during the class period. The
