FORMTEXT It is your responsibility to print and sign your name on the class roster at every session as you enter the class. Students are expected to attend all courses and course activities for which they are registered. Any class meeting missed, regardless of cause, reduces the opportunity for learning and may adversely affect a student’s achievement in the course. Students are required to attend at least 90% of the class meetings in order to receive credit for the course. If a student misses one-third or more of a class session, the student will be counted absent. After you are tardy three times it will count as one absence. Leaving early is the same as being tardy. More than 2 absences without a documented excuse will cause a student to earn an “F”. Being absent is not an excuse for not having your assignments completed. Students are responsible for immediately informing their professors when they must miss class sessions for emergency meetings. Excused absences may be warranted at the discretion of the advisor if appropriate and documentation is provided. If the validity of the excuses is warranted, the professor will provide an opportunity for the student to complete any required make-up work.<br />Electronic Device Use: FORMTEXT <br />A computer and a USB drive (flash drive) is required for saving and backing up all course work.
