I will average all your homework grades together from myaccountinglab and it will count as one grade.  There will be no makeup or late homework accepted for any reason.

Make-Up Work and Exams:
All exams will be administered on the regular scheduled test dates. All exams will be administered thru blackboard by clicking on the Exams Link. Under no circumstances will an absence, for any reason, excuse the students from completing all exams assigned in the course. Exams usually include multiple choice, problems, and True/False questions. Some exams may consist of completing a problem at the end of the chapter and you will be given one and a half hour (90 minutes) to take your exam.
As a word of precaution, please do not use mobile or wireless devices for exams
Exams are scheduled as noted on your Exam Calendar. There will be no makeup or late Exams accepted for any reason. You will be given approximately one weeks to take the exam. You will have only one attempt at the exam. If you miss any exams, those exams will be given a grade of zero. Please speak with me if you know in advance that you will be missing any exams.
Every student MUST have a copy of the required textbooks by the second week of class. The student will still be responsible for any assignments given. Failure to have a text may result in being dropped from the class.
A failure to follow instructions (written or oral) will result in penalties.
Students should keep a record of their grades/average. Instructor(s) will not average grades for students. Instructors do not “drop” grades.

Students must use appropriate e-mail etiquette when corresponding with instructor; for example, complete sentences and a full subject line with your name/course name. Please allow the instructor twenty-four hours to respond to your emails. Voice mail messages should be clearly spoken identifying student's name, course, and any return phone number.

Attendance Policy Poor attendance is a leading reason for termination from a job in all areas of employment. With this factor in mind, the instructor monitors student attendance daily. In addition, attendance on a regular basis is necessary for proper skill development. Students are responsible for completing all assigned homework, including reading assignments, by the required due dates and for being prepared for each class meeting. This applies even if you were absent from the previous class meeting.
