Policies

Peruse the Writing and Communication Program’s common policies for 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.

*If your grade is important to you, please pay special attention to the Evaluation Rubric and the Evaluation Equivalencies. They clearly describe the program’s expectations of its students and the standards you are being held to.

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

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 will receive 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.

Office hours
You are required to come to my office hours for an individual visit at least once during the semester. If you can’t come during my scheduled hours, please schedule an appointment with me by email or in person after class. This visit will count toward your Participation grade.
