Academic Code of Integrity
Students are expected to abide by The University of Arizona Code of Academic Integrity. 'The guiding principle of academic integrity is that a student's submitted work must be the student's own.' If you have any questions regarding what is acceptable practice under this Code, please ask an Instructor.
The University has a Disability Resource Center. If you anticipate the need for reasonable accommodations to meet the requirements of this course, you must register with the Disability Resource Center and request that the DRC send me, the Instructor, official notification of your accommodation needs as soon as possible. Please plan to meet with me by appointment or during office hours to discuss accommodations and how my course requirements and activities may impact your ability to fully participate.
The instructor does not accept late assignments except in extreme documented emergencies. Assignments must be submitted to the course drop box and not via email. Full assignment descriptions including due dates will be available in the course space.
The instructor does not grant Incompletes except in extreme documented emergencies.
The current Catalog reads:
The grade of I may be awarded only at the end of the term, when all but a minor portion of the course work has been satisfactorily completed. The grade of I is not to be awarded in place of a failing grade or when the student is expected to repeat the course; in such a case, a grade other than I must be assigned. Students should make arrangements with the instructor to receive an incomplete grad before the end of the term...
If the incomplete is not removed by the instructor within one year the I grade will revert to a failing grade.
Threatening Behavior is Prohibited (Full policy available at http://policy.web.arizona.edu/threatening-behavior-students )

A student can be quilty of threatening behavior even if the person who is the object of the threat does not observe or receive it, so long as a reasonable person would interpret the maker's statement, communication, conduct or gesture as a serious expression of intent t physically harm.
