Please be respectful of the other students in class. Turn off cell phones/pagers. Pay attention in class. Do not be disruptive. While most of these rules apply more to a classroom setting, there are instances where these are applicable to the online course environment as well.
If there is any evidence of cheating on any homework, quiz, test, or final, you will receive a zero for that item and cannot make it up or replace it and it cannot be dropped.
NOTE: Modifications or additions applied to this syllabus may be made by the instructor as needed.

Mandatory Skills Building/Tutorials
In an effort to improve student retention, the following policy is in place for this course:
If a student fails an exam (excluding the final), they will be required to schedule a visit with the instructor (over phone or in person), complete an additional assignment and retake the exam. All this must be done prior to being able to take the next assigned exam. If you fail the second attempt, the higher of the two grades will be entered in the grade book. Failure to complete the tutorial and retake the exam during the required time will result in not being able to take the next assigned exam. This will result in a zero (0) on the next exam and place you in serious jeopardy of failing the course. Exams, quizzes and assignments in this course deserve serious attention on your behalf, and the tutorial requirements are instilled in this program to help you succeed.
Regular attendance/participation is necessary for satisfactory achievement. Therefore it is the responsibility of the student to attend class.
Expect exam questions to be from lecture material, assigned textbook readings, handouts, guest lecturer(s) , etc. Expect multiple choice, true/false, fill-in-the-blank and essay questions. THE FINAL EXAMINATION WILL BE COMPREHENSIVE.
The final exam will be posted and administered during the normal final exam week. It will be a comprehensive examination.
