What's that attendance policy again?

4 absences = final course grade is dropped one full letter grade

5 absences = final course grade is dropped two full letter grades

6 absences = final course grade is dropped three full letter grades

7 absences = Fail

Excessive texting or tardies will be counted as absences.



If you are sick or have to miss class, you are responsible for finding out the assignment from a classmate or the instructor and coming to the next class prepared with any missed work completed.

Students CANNOT miss critique; if a final critique is missed you fail. Please be respectful to your classmates.


Electronic Devices

Cell phones and texting are not permitted. Failure to recognize this policy will result in a grade reduction.

Abuse of electronic devices in the classroom (aka: cell phones, text messaging, ipods, and whatever other electronic gizmos you have) that could interfere with the learning of others is unacceptable.



Assignments are due at the start of class, unless an in-class work day is given.

Assignments that require craft as part of the project will be expected to have proper mounting done, etc. before handing in.

You are responsible for backing up all of your work.

This class will be allowed to revise any assignment for a higher grade. However, the original assignment must be turned in along with the revised one for review.


Academic Dishonesty

The integrity of the educational experience is diminished by cheating in class, plagiarizing, lying, or employing other modes of deceit.

Plagiarism and Copyright Infringement will not be tolerated. If you have any questions about academic dishonesty ask me, or in regards to a presentation or paper you may also check with the writing center.
