Course Grading Policy:

All students are expected to be on time and in attendance for each and every class.

Adherence to deadlines is required. It is the individual student's responsibility to keep track of deadlines and to present the work to the class and instructor on the specified dates. The maximum grade for a late assignment will be lowered according to the number of classes it is late:
on time (beginning of class) 100 (A)
one class late  83 (B)
two classes late  68 (D)

Any assignment more than two classes (one week) late will be counted as a 0 (E).

Students choosing to use "at home" hardware and software must have their current working files on the course system and available for review at the beginning of each and every class. Problems with home systems or incompatibilities will not be an acceptable excuse for missed goals. Technical problems will happen frequently during the semester and students will have trouble accessing the computer lab during "prime time" hours. Students must make their own arrangements for overcoming these difficulties and submitting their work on time. Unless there is a complete system failure in a computer-related course, technical difficulties are never an acceptable excuse for not meeting a deadline. Students should plan their time and work so as to anticipate the technical hurdles that are a part of this profession.

Academic Dishonesty

Any and all suspected cases of academic dishonesty will be dealt with according to university procedures. Students are referred to the student handbook for further information on academic dishonesty and the accompanying procedures and penalties.
