Textbooks and Materials
Acquiring Textbooks and Course Materials
Students will have fixed weekly due dates.
Grading Turnaround Time
All completed assignments will be graded no later than seven days after the due date, and sooner when possible.
Late Work Policy
Late work is not accepted without proof of illness or other emergency. This is a short course, so giving extensions makes work stack up and compounds the problem. Turn in what you have, however imperfect, by the due date. Discussion board forums cannot be completed late as they mimic a conversation.
