The student is expected to participate in activities and communicate with the professor at least once per week by sending completed
assignments, email communication, etc. Failure to communicate as expected may result in the dropping of the student from the course.
Although attendance is NOT directly calculated into the final grade, failure to attend or communicate with the professor may result in being dropped from the class or the assignment of a failing grade.
Student academic behavior must be consistent with the District's Code of Conduct (Policy 3100).
If the student has an issue with an assigned grade, it is the student's responsibility to provide documentation and any additional information that supports the issue. The evaluation will be reviewed and remediation (if appropriate) will be implemented.
