Notes Regarding Absences:
Absences are considered by policy at Tarleton State University to be a matter between the professor and the student. In general, make-up work will be allowed for excused absences. Excused absences include illness, death in the family or legal proceedings. Proof or verification of the above may be required in order for an absence to be excused. Unless prior arrangements are made, make-up work should be completed within one week of the student's absence. Please remember that it is the student's responsibility to check with the professor and have all make-up work (chapter tests, daily tests, daily work, etc.) completed within this one week time frame. Students should also note that class begins promptly at the stated starting time. Additionally, students should view class attendance the same way they would view reporting to work for employment--employers expect employees to be on the job everyday that it is possible and to contact the employer immediately if attendance at work for any day will be missed. Thus, be sure to contact the professor before the next class meeting in order to be eligible to make-up assignments. Excessive absences will not be tolerated and students will be removed from the class roster. In the completion of a course of this type, attendance is one of the most important criteria for success.

Late Work:
In the computer service industry, it is extremely important that all work be completed early or on time. To reinforce this important facet of the industry, late work (when accepted) will incur a letter grade per calendar day penalty (11 points/day). Saturday and Sunday are not counted as late days. Assignments are due on or before the start of a class period.

Laboratory Notes:
Mandatory laboratory class time assignments will not be made. Students will be expected to complete the laboratory assignments at their convenience during the regular hours of the operation of the laboratory. Students should be sure that they have the time to commit to completing the assignments for the class. The tentative hours of operation are posted in the laboratory located on the second floor of the Business Building.

Computer Information Systems Departmental Policies:
Students are responsible for adherence to the policies of the Department of Computer Information Systems--including the policy relating to academic conduct (dishonesty, cheating, plagiarism).
