Late homework will be allowed up to one week after the due date with a 10% penalty for each day late.

First Day Drop Policy:
I reserve the right to drop no-shows after the first hour of the first class if no prior arrangements were made for the absence.

Disabled Students:
All students with disabilities requiring accommodations are responsible for making arrangements in a timely manner through the Center for Students with Disabilities.

Class Rules:
Electronic Device Policy: Turn off cell phones before entering class. No texting, no calls, no checking messages, etc.—do that during the break. Use of recorders (audio and/or video) is allowed with instructor permission. No eating or drinking in class. Clean your area before leaving—throw away all trash. Please do not put backpacks, purses, etc. in the aisle where people may trip over them.

Academic Honesty Policy:
I follow the Glendale Community College Honesty Policy as listed in the Glendale Community College Catalog and the Student Handbook (free at Information Desk near Admissions). Students are, at all times, required to do their own work. No copying of other students’ work, whether on a test or on routine class work, is allowed at any time. Activities that are considered to be CHEATING include, but are not limited to, the following: talking during exams (including answering another student’s questions), using cell phone during exams, using computer (unless permitted), using notes or textbook (unless permitted), using or passing notes or sharing work—written or electronic—to or from another student, writing notes on desk for use during exam, copying other students’ work—homework, classwork, or exams, and so on. Violation of any of these rules (i.e. cheating) could result in a lowering of the exam grade or the course grade (e.g. a “Fail”), and the violator’s name and student I.D. number will be sent, with a description of the violation, to the Division Chair and to the Vice President of Instruction to be kept on record for future reference. The Dean of Student Activities may also be contacted for disciplinary action, if necessary.

Please address any issues you may have that are relative to this course with me, your instructor, before or after class in person, or during my office hours (see above), or by e-mail as early in the semester as possible. If you and I cannot resolve the issue, I will refer you to the division chair, Michael Scott.
