Success in this course is dependent on your active participation and engagement throughout the semester. As such, students are required to complete all assignments by the designated due date, and to actively participate in online discussion forums. If you find that you cannot meet these requirements due to special circumstances, please contact me as soon as possible. I’m happy to work with you to help you successfully complete this course.

Late Work

All assignments must be submitted at the specified time on the date they are due. If an assignment is late, your grade will be dropped by one-half of one letter (a 90 to an 85, for example) for each day that passes after the time in which it was due. In addition, submission links will be closed one week following the assignment due date. Technological malfunctions are not an excuse for late work.
