Late Submission of Course Materials: I fully expect that all assignments will be turned in on time and complete. I will, however, work with you if there are unforeseen circumstances that prohibit you from completely your work in a punctual fashion. Treat this class like you would a job. Be responsible and stay on top of your work.
