General Policies

All academic work must meet the standards set forth in the University's Student Code of Conduct concerning academic honesty, and all use of University computing infrastructure must comply with the guidelines set forth in the Policy for Responsible Use of University Computers and Information Systems. Each student is responsible for informing themselves about these standards and policies before taking part in the class. Students are also expected to arrive prepared and on time for all scheduled classes. The professor reserves the right to exact grade penalties (at his discretion) for failure to comply with the policies of the course.

The campus policy states that the instructor be informed of anticipated absences for religious holidays by the beginning of the second week of school.

Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) provides individualized academic support for students with documented disabilities. Support services can include extended test time, textbooks and handouts in alternative formats (electronic texts, Braille, taped texts, etc), classroom notes, sign language interpreters, and transcriptionists. SSD not only accommodates students that have visible disabilities, but students with other varying types of disabilities that impact college life.

If you have a documented disability that is impacting your academic progress, please call SSD at 472-3787 and schedule an appointment with the Director, Veva Cheney, or the Assistant Director, Barbara Woodhead.
