Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Participation in lecture is expected and will be part of the final grade.  The student is expected to be at each class meeting and on time.  Classes missed for legitimate reasons (TDY, illness) will be excused but the student is responsible to make up the work. Quizzes can be picked up in the office and made up prior to the next class. If you fail to do this, you will not be given a make up.  The student must contact the instructor or the Park University – FTLW office prior to missing a class.  If the office is closed, please leave a detailed message on the answering machine or contact the instructor via email.  Two consecutive unexcused absences will result in automatic academic withdrawal.  Two non-consecutive unexcused absences are excessive and three absences, excused or unexcused, will result in an administrative withdrawal and a grade of “F” (attendance for the semester).  Any student with one or more unexcused absences may not receive a grade of Incomplete.
