Course Policies:
1. Course time will be devoted to demonstration, discussion and hands-on participation. Because of the reliance on hardware and software, it is important that the student be present for each session. Assignments missed due to absence may not be made up except for justifiable absences. (Whenever possible, the instructor or office should be contacted before the missed class.) Assignments may be made up one week after the absence. Partial attendance may be counted as an absence.
2. Students who miss the test will have until the next class period to make it up, or they will receive a zero for the exam. Copies of the test will be left in the college office (see Linda or Jane).
3. All students are expected to know and abide by computer lab rules posted in room.
4. The instructor reserves the right to alter the syllabus over the course of the semester. Changes in scheduled activities will be announced in class; it is up to the individual student to keep abreast of these changes.
