|Attendance:||As this is an on-line course, attendance requires participation in the course, not time in a classroom. However, students must ensure that they complete their required participation in online discussions and other similar assignments.
Occasionally, online meeting/discussion forums times may be arranged in conjunction with the students availability.
|Missed Exams:||Quizzes and periodic tests must be written when scheduled for the class. This policy may be modified should the student submit written documentation, acceptable to the department, supporting a valid reason for missing the quiz or test (i.e. family or personal emergency, etc.).
|Late Assignments:||Late assignments will not be marked without the student having made prior arrangements with the instructor.|
|Cheating/Plagiarism:||Plagiarism is the presentation of another person's words, ideas, interpretations, insights, or order of points as one's own. All work submitted must be the student's own words and content, and not written by a tutor or friend. If external sources are used for an essay or assignment, they must be documented to avoid plagiarism.|
