Course Policies

Academic Integrity and Plagiarism Policy

Lehman College’s policy on such matters carry academic sanctions that may include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • a grade of F on the paper or examination; the student may be given the option of submitting a similar but additional project for grading
  • a grade of F on the paper or examination, as above, but with no option to submit additional work
  • a grade of F for the course

Active Participation

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.
