STUDENT CONTRIBUTIONS Each student should spend at least six hours per week preparing for class. Timely completion of assignments and tests is necessary to successfully complete the course objectives. A student will be dropped from the class roster if the student is failing and the instructor deems this is due to excessive nonparticipation in the course requirements (failure to complete and submit assignments and tests by their due dates is considered nonparticipation). Excessive nonparticipation is defined as failure to meet three assignments or test deadlines as given in the Canvas course calendar. The decision to accept a late assignment or Exam is up to the professor no matter what the students circumstances seem to be. I will take consideration for those students who know that they will miss an assignment for medical, family, or personal reasons, as long as I am told of the situation before the assignment is due. I do not guarantee that an extension of, or exception of a late assignment or Exam will be given to students even if told beforehand. If you are denied access to this Canvas course; it is a good sign that you have been dropped from the course. You will need to contact a Counselor or the Dean of Instruction if you feel you were inappropriately dropped.
