Students who repeatedly indicate a need for extended deadlines will be unable to successfully complete the course, and will be advised to withdraw. An Incomplete grade is not an option for this course. No assignment may be submitted more than one week late. After one week, assignments will receive a grade of 0.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
BE CONSIDERATE OF CLASSMATES AND THE INSTRUCTOR AND TURN OFF ALL CELL PHONES AND PAGERS BEFORE ENTERING THE CLASSROOM. If a student's cell phone rings during class, that student will be dismissed for the day. NO EXCEPTIONS.
Students who do not comply with the attendance policy or do not complete activities and/or proposal development and meet with instructor as required may be dismissed from the Honors Program.
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.
