Course Policies
Instructor Policies Use your LSCPA email to communicate with me or call me at my office number 49-984-6381.

Assignments will be given each week. The assignments will open at 8 a.m. on each Monday morning and will be due by 10 a.m. the following morning.

LATE WORK is highly discouraged. There is only a three-day late period allowed. Due dates are given and enough time is given to complete all work. NO EXCEPTIONS.

Students are responsible for completing all assigned homework, including reading assignments, by the required due dates and for being prepared for each class meeting.

There will be weekly virtual meetings. These meetings are not mandatory. I am using these meetings as an opportunity for you to ask questions about the reading material and/or any assignments given.

If you miss an exam, your lowest exam grade will count twice. If you miss more than one exam, those exams will be given a grade of zero.

There will be a final exam. All students must take the exam on the scheduled date and time, and failure to do so will result in a 0 on the final exam.

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.

No emailed work is accepted; unless requested by instructor. You must submit your assignments in Blackboard.

Students are responsible for completing all assigned reading and video viewings.

A failure to follow oral and/or written instructions will result in a 10-point deduction penalty.

Academic dishonesty will result in a zero on any assignment (first offense); a second incidence of academic dishonesty result in failure of the class.

Software Requirements:
If you are in a course that is using a specific software, you MUST have the software available to you either on your home computer or you must use the open lab provided in the Gates Library.

Reliable Internet access is required for all online courses and many traditional courses.

Computer failure and lack of internet access are not acceptable excuses for missed assignments, projects, quizzes, or exams. DO NOT wait until the last minute to complete class work or exams.

E-Mail/Voice Mail Etiquette:
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. Voice mail messages should be clearly spoken identifying students 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 must log into Blackboard at least two times per week. If you do not log into your Blackboard twice per week, you will be considered to have an absence. The following is the attendance policy.

4 absences = one letter grade drop
6 absences = two letter grade drop
8 absences = automatic failure of class
Academic Honesty Academic honesty is expected from all students, and dishonesty in any form will not be tolerated. Please consult the LSC-PA policies (Section IX, subsection A, in the Faculty Handbook) for consequences of academic dishonesty.
Facility Policies
  1. No food or tobacco products are allowed in the classroom.

  2. Only students enrolled in the course are allowed in the classroom, except by special instructor permission.

  3. Use of electronic devices is prohibited.
