needed.
Time Management
An online course can take a considerable amount of time. As stated in welcome page, each
module requires 5- 8 hours for readings and assignments/assessments. For this reason, it is highly
recommended that you begin each assignment early. Even though the deadlines are at the end of
the week, you will not be able to finish all necessary work in one day. Work on it regularly over
the week rather than waiting until the last day or two. This will allow you to have the chance to
work out problems or get help if needed.
Participation
Depending on the class activities, you are responsible for completing weekly assignments,
participating in discussion groups, and checking in to the course site on a consistent basis.
Faculty Initiated Drop
Please be advised that if you do not attend class at least once during the first week, I will drop
you from class. Since this is an online course, this requirement means that you MUST be present

are usually due on a weekly basis the exact dates will always be found in the activities. If you
wish to complete an assignment prior to the due date, you may (however, a group assignment
must be completed during the week assigned OR upon approval of every member of the group).
NO LATE SUBMISSION WILL BE ACCEPTED. PLEASE BE AWARE OF THIS POLICY
AND SUBMIT YOUR WORK ON TIME. This policy will be strictly enforced in the summer
session due to the condensed schedule.
Turnaround Time
The instructor will be monitoring the discussion board on a daily basis. Submitted assignments
will be graded and feedback will be provided within 3 days after the module is concluded. E-
mail messages will be answered within 24 hours on weekdays and 48 hours on weekends.
Academic Integrity
Under all circumstances, students are expected to be honest in their dealings with faculty,
administrative staff, and fellow students. In speaking and/or correspondence with members of the
college community, students must give an accurate representation of the facts at hand. Students

that is not a product of the students own effort is considered dishonest. Students may not submit
the same work for more than one course. A student may be suspended or expelled for academic
dishonesty. Please refer to the Student Handbook for additional information regarding the policy
on academic honesty.
