Attendance, Exams, and Assignments:
You will attend ALL lectures and labs, and read all assigned materials beforehand. Attendance and participation will be considered in the final grade. Students are expected to be punctual, prepared for class, attentive, and respectful of others. Students who arrive late for an exam my not be permitted to take that exam. **If you cannot attend an exam you will not be permitted to make it up unless I am informed beforehand! To reach me, leave a message with my Voice Mail or email. Make-up exams will be provided in only the most adverse circumstances (e.g. serious illness) and prior to the next class period. Documentation of the circumstance (e.g. doctor’s note) may be required.
Assignments are to be turned in on time. Late assignments will not be accepted except in the most adverse circumstances (e.g. serious illness). Documentation of the circumstance (e.g. doctor’s note) will be required. No lab assignments will be accepted on labs you have not attended and there are no make-ups on labs. There are multiple lab sections available during each week and if extenuating circumstances do not permit you to attend the lab you are enrolled in, you may attend another lab in the same week with the instructor's permission.
Lab grades are compiled by your laboratory instructor and reported to me for inclusion in your final grade. You receive only a single grade for this course, compiled by me.
If you have a 96.000% or higher overall average, you are exempt from taking the final exam.
The Fine Print:
Keystone College does not discriminate in any of its programs on the basis of disability. While there is not a deadline for the disclosure of a disability by a student, in order to facilitate the documentation and accommodation processes, students are encouraged to voluntarily and confidentially disclose any disability requiring an accommodation prior to the beginning of class. This disclosure should be made to Sarah Keating, Vice President of Enrollment, Keystone’s Section 504/ADA Coordinator. Students who disclose a disability, and who are seeking an accommodation, ultimately will be expected to provide documentation verifying the disability.
