Textbooks, workbooks, lab fees, etc. are a normal part of the cost of your education. Photocopies of the pages will not be accepted for credit. This constitutes a breach of copyright law and drives up the cost of textbooks. You will hand in your assignments to the instructor each week for review.
You are expected to attend each class. Class attendance ensures your learning the material in its entirety. Only one excused absence will be allowed, with a prior approval by the professor. Unexcused absences are not acceptable and will result in the loss of points for that class period.
Late work will only be accepted under special circumstances and only with prior approval from the professor (see guidelines for absences). If late work is allowed, a late penalty of 10% will be applied for each day late.
Leadership University upholds the highest of standards when it comes to development of classwork or an assignment. All work should be your own. Plagiarism is unacceptable and will result in an immediate failure of the course.
- If you did not write the words, they do not belong in your paper. You cannot COPY AND PASTE anything from a book, the internet or any other source and put it in your paper.
- Do NOT include direct quotes unless the quote is cited properly and gives the author credit. Describe the material in your own words. Do not use words you do not understand.
3. You are free to consult with classmates about assignments, but
please ensure that your work is your own. If your work looks too much like your classmates, plagiarism rules may be enforced.
Classes will be conducted in a combination lecture-discussion format. Students should be prepared to comment on the subject matter scheduled for each particular class period. Students are required to complete reading assignments on time and be prepared for class discussions and activities.
