PLAGIARISM POLICY

Plagiarism or any other form of academic dishonesty will not be tolerated, and I will follow Marquette’s University policy on academic dishonesty, which can be found at http://bulletin.marquette.edu/undergrad/academicregulations/#academichonestypolicy. Ignorance of how to use and to cite sources properly is not an excuse for plagiarism.

 

No makeup exam will be given without prior approval from me or a valid medical excuse.  In addition, no late papers will be accepted without penalty (an “A” becomes a “B,” an “A-” becomes a “B-,” etc., at the end of the class at which a paper is due.  An additional full grade will be deducted for each week it’s late). Do not ask me for extensions, for I will grant them only if you present me with overwhelming evidence that you were physically incapable of completing the assignment on time.

 

ATTENDANCE

Attendance will not arbitrarily determine your grade; however, in a course based extensively on lectures it is vital that you attend class. I ASSUME THAT EVERYONE WILL BE IN CLASS EVERY DAY; AN UNEXCUSED ABSENCE IS NOT A VALID REASON TO BE UNAWARE OF SLIGHT CHANGES IN THE SCHEDULE. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO KEEP ABREAST OF CLASS "NEWS."
