Late Submission of Course Materials:
If a student is unable to complete an assignment on time for a valid reason (e.g., military deployment, work-related requirements), contact the instructor by e-mail, FAX, or phone so that a determination can be made on assignment completion. Incomplete grades are not submitted at the conclusion of the course based on missing or incomplete assignments unless there is a request from the student and a Contract for Incomplete Grade is prepared clearly outlining assignment completion and reasons for the incomplete.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
The nature and design of this course requires maintaining weekly attendance and contact with the course instructor.
Courtesy and professionalism are expected from each student in interaction with classmates and during individual student classroom presentations.
Your instructor is available outside of class by e-mail, FAX, and telephone. Contact the Charleston AFB Campus of Park University if there are emergency situations/messages that will affect your class attendance.
E-mail Procedures: When sending messages and assignments by e-mail, you must use an e-mail address that I recognize is yours. I do not open e-mails from unrecognized senders or with blank subject lines. If you send me an e-mail from other than your Park.Pirate.Mail address, be sure to use your course number as part of the subject line. Keep me advised of your correct e-mail address or any changes in e-mail addresses that occur during the course. I will generally respond to your properly identified messages within 48 hours taking into account that I operate in the Eastern Standard Time (EST) zone.
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.
