All final exams in all School of Business and Management courses will be comprehensive and will be closed book and closed notes. They will constitute 30% of the total course grade and will not be a take-home exam. They will be completed during the test week in the period designated by the registrar or by the Proctor in the case online courses. 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 Dean of the School of Business and Management.
Assignments submitted after the due date will not receive full credit. Assignments will be reduced based on the following schedule:

within 72 hours of due date (3 days late) reduced by 20%

within 120 hours of due date (5 days late)reduced by 40%
within 144 hours of due date (6 days late)reduced by 50%
For example, if you turned in an assignment worth 100 points, 2 days late, the highest possible score you could receive is 90 points.
NO CREDIT will be given for assignments turned in more than one week late. In order to finish the term project, and the class, weekly assignments MUST be kept current.
Because discussion is dynamic and needs to occur throughout the week in order for student’s to reap the full benefit, the rubric portion of the discussion outlined in the discussion section of the syllabus can not be submitted late. Discussion needs to occur within the week in which it is assigned.
Be on time, allow extra time for problems, but accept the penalty if you miss it-- this is the real world.
NOTE: Because final grades need to be posted, no assignments will be accepted after the last day of the term.
