Course Policies

Attendance:  Students are expected to attend all classes. More than 3 absences will result in course failure.  Excessive lateness will affect your grade.  Three late marks equal one absence. See City Tech’s attendance policy below.

Plagiarism and Cheating: Presenting work by others as your own is completely unacceptable.  Plagiarism includes using material from books or the Internet without acknowledging the source as well as submitting something written by someone else.  Either will result in a 0 (zero) for that particular assignment/exam. A second instance will result in an automatic F for the course.

Decorum:  Please turn off your cell phones, beepers, alarms, etc. and no sleeping, internet surfing, txt msgs while in lecture.

Humanities Department Attendance Policy

Class Meets                 Allowable Absence

1 time/week                 2 missed classes or the equivalent amount of missed class time

2 times/week               3 missed classes or the equivalent amount of missed class time

Also, 3 latenesses equal one absence

A student who is not in a class for any reason is not receiving the benefit of the education being provided. Missed class time includes not just absences but also latenesses, early departures, and time outside the classroom taken by students during class meeting periods. Each professor will keep accurate, detailed records of students’ attendance, and will notify students that a WU grade (withdrew unofficially) may be assigned to anyone who exceeds the limit established for a given course or component. Students are responsible for keeping track of their own attendance. When they exceed the maximum permitted missed class time, they should make an appointment to discuss the problem with the professor.”

Reasonable Accommodation Statement

We are committed to providing reasonable accommodation to students with disabilities. Qualified students with disabilities will be provided reasonable academic accommodations if deter- mined eligible by the Center for Student Accessibility. Prior to granting disability accommodations in this course, the instructor must receive written verification of a student’s eligibility from the Center, which is located in room A-237. It is the student’s responsibility to initiate contact with the Center staff and to follow the established procedures for having the accommodation no- tice sent to the instructor.

Diversity Statement

The Humanities Department complies with the college wide nondiscrimination policy and seeks to foster a safe and inclusive learning environment that celebrates diversity in its many forms and enhances our students’ ability to be informed, global citizens. Through our example, we demonstrate an appreciation of the rich diversity of world cultures and the unique forms of expression that make us human.
