|Attendance Policy||Research has shown a cause and effect relationship between attendance and college success. A student is allowed six (6) MWF or four (4) TR or MW 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 who 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%
*Students enrolled in a co-requisite lab will receive 1/2 of the Chapter Homework average based on the number of lab hours completed. These students must complete the minimum number of hours required or they cannot pass the course.*
