Faulkner University


Student Responsibilities:

Students are expected to attend class regularly and be punctual. Two tardies count as one absence. Leaving class early counts as a tardy.

All essays are due on the assigned dates. You are allowed ONE late essay. After that, each late essay will result in your final grade being lowered by one letter grade for each late paper. (For example, if you have 3 late papers and receive a "B" for the course, your final grade will be a "D.")

All readings must be read before coming to class on the day scheduled for discussion of this reading. Lack of participation by members of the class will result in pop quizzes.

Now, a few nuts and bolts:

University policy mandates that if a student is absent for more than 25% of the total class meetings, regardless of the reason for the absences, he/she receives an automatic "F" in the course for the semester. I will strictly adhere to this policy. If you will not be in class, let me know PRIOR to class beginning. You are allowed 2 unexcused absences. Sleeping in class or spending class time in chat rooms or checking email , all count as unexcused absences. Two tardies also equal one unexcused absence. You may reach me via email or phone.

Each paper must be typed, double-spaced on a word processor. Please save all of your work to a disk or your PERSONAL hard drive. You may be asked to e-mail me papers periodically throughout the semester. In the upper left-hand corner put your name, assignment number, date, course and section number. REMEMBER--Every piece of writing should have a title.
The major writing assignments will typically range in length from 3 to 6 pages.
I do not assign extra credit work.
Please review the plagiarism policy. Any form of scholastic dishonesty constitutes sufficient grounds for an F in the course.
Please have your email address and internet account active by Wednesday, January 18.
