Events that are not excused:

Documentation: Documentation will be required for the absence to be excused. It is YOUR responsibility to PLAN on getting the appropriate documentation.


The fall and spring sections have lectures that are scheduled twice a week. Students are expected to attend all lectures that are held in Johnson Hall 222. In addition, students will have a variety of on-line assignments and a homework assignment each week. Students are expected to perform these assignments by their respective due dates.

While you attend the on-campus lectures you are expected to:

Excused absences are handled in accordance with the above policies. CSU requires verifiable proof (e.g. a note from the health center, obituary, etc.) for students who wish to not be penalized for missed classes and work.

We also do not want you to come to class ill. Make up work will need to be explicitly negotiated. The objectives include: getting students to class; not spreading illness; and making sure students who are ill receive appropriate treatment.
The material in this course (including learning to come to class and stay awake) is important. Excessive absences will impact your grade.

Turning in Work

Assignments will be submitted via SIMnet or CANVAS unless stated otherwise.
Collaboration: We encourage you to talk with other students about your assignments and questions, but make sure you do your own homework and labs assignments. You may not copy another student's files or other work (either with or without their knowledge), nor perform activities or other work for them.
Please read the departmental policy statement regarding in-completes, academic integrity, and class attendance. This policy statement can be read here: student information.
