If calculators are allowed, they will not be multifunctional electronic devices that include features such as: phones, cameras, instant messaging, pagers, and so forth. Electronic Computers will not be allowed on final exams unless an exception is made by the Associate Dean.
A. Examinations and quizzes are announced well in advance and it is the Students' responsibility to know when exams and quizzes are scheduled and make special arrangements PRIOR TO THE EXAM OR QUIZ if they will be unable to attend. Makeup exams or quizzes will be allowed, without penalty, only if the situation warrants and only if PRIOR arrangements have been made with the instructor. If you have an unexcused absence resulting in you missing an exam, the exam must be made up the following week. In addition, your test score will be reduced by ten (10) percentage points. These requirements are imposed to protect the validity of the evaluations and to enhance the objective of timeliness, which is of major importance in Accounting.
B. Homework assignments must be submitted on or before the beginning of the class on the assigned due date. Ten (10) percentage points will be deducted for each calendar day that homework is late. Please note; Homework will not be accepted after graded homework has been handed back to the class. The instructor, at his/her sole discretion, may choose to amend this policy in certain cases to accommodate extenuating circumstances. Assignments submitted for grading will be returned within one week of the due date. All assigned homework will serve as bases for discussion in class. It is important to note that it is virtually impossible to understand accounting as it works in the real world, without performing problems in a classroom situation. Reading the book without performing the homework will not result in your learning accounting.
