Course Policies

CITW 165 Course Policies

Class Attendance/Participation

Attendance is determined when the student logs into D2L on a regular basis (minimum of 3 times per week preferred), submits assignments on time and takes exams at the approved time and place.

It is the student's responsibility to contact the instructor if the student must miss a due date and to submit a new schedule of due dates for instructor's approval. Missing a scheduled activity, for any reason, including illness or late registration, in no way relieves the student of the responsibility for completing all work in the course to the satisfaction of the instructor according to the approved course schedule.

Plan to spend 2 to 3 hours per course credit each week on the weekly lessons (approximately 6 to 9 hours total). Each week you will read your textbook and complete an assignment over the content.  It is VERY IMPORTANT to stay on schedule.

Students are expected to submit all assignments, participate in all interactivity and take all exams according to the Schedule (or make other arrangements well in advance of the scheduled due date). Failure to do so may result in academic penalty or withdrawal from the class. Students will want to check with their advisor regarding the impact of receiving a grade below 2.0 or a W (student or instructor-initiated) on financial aid or the attainment of certificates or degrees. International students may risk their visa status or be in non-compliance with INS regulations.

There may be weekly discussion board postings that will also be counted as attendance and may be graded.

Late Classwork

Students are responsible for following the course schedule. Your instructor will notify you of any changes to the schedule using the following methods: D2L announcements, D2L Mail and in the classroom (if the class meets on-campus).

Late homework is accepted and is marked off 1 point for each calendar day that an assignment is late, unless arrangements are made in advance with the student and instructor.  An assignment that is 10 days past due will receive a zero for the assignment score.

Assignments are due at 8AM on the posted due date in the course schedule.

Homework will be graded on a first come, first served basis after the posted due date. Late homework will be graded as time permits.

From time-to-time, life (work or family) may get in the way of your studies. Should this occur, contact you instructor immediately by phone, e-mail, instant messaging, etc. to ensure you won't lose points on any missed homework.

Exams, tests and quizzes cannot be made up after the due date, however, accommodations may be made in advance of the deadline for students with schedule conflicts.  Contact your instructor well in advance of the conflict.
