PLAGIARISM POLICY: Plagiarism will not be tolerated, and I will follow Marquette’s University policy on academic dishonesty, which can be found at https://www.marquette.edu/academics/regulations/acaddishonesty.htmlhttps://www.marquette.edu/academics/regulations/acaddishonesty.html.
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. 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 OR FOR NOT RECEIVING BOOK PAPER TOPICS IN A TIMELY FASHION. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO KEEP ABREAST OF CLASS "NEWS."
