Attendance is mandatory. If you are taking this class in a regular classroom, you must arrive on time and prepared. If you are taking this class purely online, you "attend" by participating in the discussions that take place throughout the week. In to get points to for the discussion, you must post post twice in every discussion.

Check into Canvas at least three times per week to complete reading, viewing, and assessments. Your teacher will be able to track your progress through the modules.

Plagiarism or the unacknowledged use of another person's work, words, or ideas, will not be tolerated and will result in a failing grade. Students must use footnotes, bibliographies, and common sense to avoid plagiarism. 

Persons with disabilities should  notify the disability resource center at their school and complete the appropriate paperwork to receive accommodations.
