“The University views class attendance as the responsibility of an individual student. Attendance is essential to complete the course successfully. University rules related to excused and unexcused absences are located on-line at http://student-rules.tamu.edu/rule07."
Late assignments and make-up exams will be accepted only in the case of a University Excused Absence with no penalty within a reasonable timeframe. All other work will be given a five-percentage point penalty for every day it is late, including weekends. University Excused Absences must have written verification, like a doctor’s note.
Each week, you are required to read all course materials and complete any assignments on the schedule. All labs are due on Mondays by 5:00 PM of the week following the lab on eCampus.
All assignments must be turned in to pass the class. You will need to download Socrative to your cell phones or mobile devices to complete the weekly reading quizzes. Questions submitted to Dr. Lawing or Dr. Struminger will be answered as promptly as possible. We reserve the right to make changes to the syllabus as needed.
