ATTENDANCE & OTHER COURSE POLICIES
Attendance policy: You are expected to attend every scheduled class meeting but are permitted one free cut without comment or penalty. Attendance may not be taken systematically, but if you miss more than one meeting (including the first), you begin to jeopardize your status in the course. If you continue to cut or miss (especially early classes), consider dropping the course. Even with medical or other emergency excuses, a high number of absences or partial absences result in a lower or failing grade.
Academic Honesty Policy: Please refer to the catalog for the Academic Honesty Policy. Plagiarism—using research without citations or copying someone else’s work as your own—will result in a grade penalty or failure of the course. Refer to the UHCL catalogue for further details regarding expectations and potential penalties.
Disabilities: If you have a disability and need a special accommodation, consult first with Disability Services and then discuss the accommodation with me.
Incompletes: A grade of "I" is given only in cases of documented emergency late in the semester. An Incomplete Grade Contract must be completed.
Late submissions: Any student who submits late materials is subject to lower grades, either in individual grades or course grades.
