Student Responsibility for Learning
Students are responsible for understanding how to use d2l, the system we are using for this online-only course. Before the semester begins, please review the information for students at http://help.d2l.arizona.edu/students/home . Because the course does not have required meeting times, it is especially important to keep up with the lectures, reading, tutorials and other course material; participate on the discussion boards; turn in all assignments on time; read the instructor's feedback on assignments; and ask questions.
If you have not logged in and posted to at least one discussion board by the end of the third week of the semester, you will be dropped from the course.
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 d2l 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 a 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 grade 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."
