LATE POLICY
Discussions are not accepted after the week ends. Postings are due Wed and responses are due Saturday. Late postings/responses (up until Sun).
Assignment drafts are due on Sunday and final versions are due the following Friday. The process allows for drafting and instructor feedback. I will not respond with ungraded feedback to any paper that comes in after the draft deadline. Also, after papers are graded, there is no rewriting; we move on. There is no extra credit in this course.

In the event of a true emergency where you will miss one or more weeks of the class (unanticipated and uncontrollable life events: natural disaster, health crisis for you or an immediate family member for whom you are a caregiver, military duty), you must arrange for extensions prior to your absence. If you disappear from the class and/or miss assignments without letting me know ahead of time, the work will not be accepted late.

INCOMPLETE GRADES: The grade of I may be considered only for students who have completed at least 80 percent of the total coursework requirements with a grade of C or better. The student must request an Incomplete before the end of the semester or term. The faculty member retains the right to make the final decision on granting a student's request for an Incomplete. AN INCOMPLETE will NOT be approved without a request by the beginning of Week 8.
