Assignments submitted one session late will receive an automatic 10 percent deduction. Papers two sessions late will lose 20 points, and so on. These points cannot be recovered. PARTICIPATION/ATTENDANCE Attendance and on-time arrivals are required. Instructors follow University guidelines as stated in the Undergraduate Catalog (“Class Attendance/Absence Policy”) to determine whether an absence is excused or unexcused. Requests for excused absences must be submitted in writing, with documentation attached, at the class session immediately following the absence. Requests for excused absences for religious observations must be made prior to the absence. One unexcused absence will be waived. • Each unexcused absence = 3 percentage points • Each late classroom arrival = 1 percentage point • Low or no classroom participation or other non-professional behavior = point deductions at discretion of instructors PROFESSIONALISM Professional conduct is worth 5 points towards the final grade. Professionalism includes active and relevant class and team participation, professional behavior in class, positive attitude, respect for others, and the ability to meet deadlines for assignments, workshops, and presentations.
