|Attendance Policy||Research has shown a cause and effect relationship between attendance and college success. A student is allowed four (4) absences (300 minutes) for any purpose. Each additional 75 minutes absent will reduce your final average by one full letter grade. Late arrivals and early departures will have these missed class minutes deducted from the 300 minute total. Students that are not in compliance with these attendance standards may be dropped from the class.|
|Determination of Final Grade||
*Chapter Homework - 25%
Chapter Testing - 50%
Final Exam - 25%
