Policies

Peruse the Writing and Communication Program’s common policies for LMC 3403 and ENGL1101/1102, including Learning Outcomes, Evaluation Equivalencies, the Evaluation Rubric, Attendance, Class Participation, Nondiscrimination, the Communication Center, Accommodations, Academic Misconduct, Syllabus Modifications, Dead Week, and the Reflective Portfolio.

Attendance
The program-wide attendance policy allows four (4) absences for ANY reason without penalty. Each absence beyond the fourth costs you a THIRD OF A LETTER GRADE off your FINAL GRADE. A total of eight (8) absences results in automatic failure in the course. If you have an extenuating circumstance that is compromising your ability to meet the basic requirements of the course, please consult the Dean of Students for counsel in how to proceed.

Late work
Late work is penalized in this class. Late work turned in within 72 hours of the deadline (due date and time) will be docked a single letter grade. Late work turned in after 72 hours receives a 0. I will consider extensions for students who contact me at least 72 hours in advance of the due date with a well-put reason for needing the extension.

Email
During the week (Mon.–Fri.), we will make every effort to respond to email within 24 hours. If a day passes and you don’t hear from us, feel free to email us again with a gentle reminder. Do not count on us to respond to email over the weekend, between Friday afternoon and Monday morning.

Office hours
Our office hours are shown on the Course Overview page of this website. If you can’t come during our scheduled hours, please feel free to schedule an appointment for another time by email or in person after class.
