Absence from a test: no make-up will be given. An exception to this policy will be considered only if an extremely serious and verified reason is offered, e.g., a serious illness or injury verified in writing by a physician. Absence from 9 or more classes: if a student is doing unsatisfactory work, he or she may receive an FA grade.
Policy on Plagiarism and Academic Dishonesty:
"Every effort will be made to ensure justice in any allegation of intellectual dishonesty. In all cases, educational assistance rather than adversarial proceedings will be sought. Sanctions may include receiving a failing grade in the course, and in the case of a second instance, dismissal from the college."
Web-Based Discussion Group
After receiving instruction on how to participate in the discussion group, the class will be given assignments to be done on the computer. In order to maximize interaction, students will post responses to the initial assignment and reply to the responses of other class members. Assignments will consist of discussing readings, answering specific questions, doing research using the resources of the Web, and dealing with case studies.
