Assignment Submission Policy: All the assignments have to be done individually. Assignment reports and codes must be submitted through Blackboard.
If you have questions regarding the grading of your assignments or exams, you must come to see the instructor within one week after the date your assignments or exams have been returned to you. If you cannot see us within one week, you need to email us within one week and make an appointment. If you believe that your assignments or exams have been lost, please notify us as soon as possible (within one week). We are not responsible for missing assignments or exams one week after they have been returned.
Attendance Policy: Students are obligated to complete all assigned work promptly, to attend class regularly, and to participate in whatever class discussion may occur. Absence from more than 10 percent of the scheduled class sessions, whether excused or unexcused, is excessive and the instructor may choose to exact a grade penalty for such absences. It is of particular importance that a student who anticipates absences in excess of 10 percent of the scheduled class sessions receives prior approval from the instructor. Refer to the Undergraduate Bulletin for more information on the class attendance policy.
Academic Integrity: University policies and procedures regarding academic integrity are defined in the policy STAF 6.25, Academic Responsibility — The Honor Code. Prohibited behaviors include plagiarism, cheating, falsification, and complicity. All potential Honor Code violations will be reported to the Office of Academic Integrity, which has the authority to implement non-academic penalties as described in STAF 6.25. Academic penalties for Honor Code violations include failure of this course.
Disability Services: Any student who has a need for accommodation based on the impact of a documented disability should contact the instructor to discuss the specific situation as soon as possible. Also, contact Disability Resources and Services at 803-777-6142 to coordinate reasonable accommodations for students with documented disabilities.
