13. Attendance Requirements: Students enrolled at one of the University’s external campuses should make every
effort to attend all class meetings. All absences must be explained to the instructor, who will then determine whether
the omitted work may be made up. When a student reaches that number of absences considered by the instructor to
be excessive, the instructor will so advise the student and file an unsatisfactory progress report with the campus dean.
Any student who misses 25 percent or more of the regularly scheduled class meetings may receive a grade of “F” in
the course. Additional attendance polices for each course, as defined by the instructor in the course syllabus, are
considered a part of the University’s attendance policy.
14. Disability Statement: “In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), it is the policy
of Wayland Baptist University that no otherwise qualified person with a disability be excluded from participation
in, be denied the benefits of, or be subject to discrimination under any educational program or activity in the
university. The Coordinator of Counseling Services serves as the coordinator of students with a disability and
should be contacted concerning accommodation requests at (806) 291- 3765. Documentation of a disability must
accompany any request for accommodations.”

Readings: Assigned readings are to be completed prior to the class session for which they are assigned.
Plagiarism Policy: Intellectual integrity and truthfulness are fundamental to scholarship. Scholars,
whether they are performing as students or as teachers, are engaged in a search for truth. Plagiarism is a
form of cheating and also a form of theft. Plagiarism occurs when a student fails to give proper credit
when information is either quoted or paraphrased. Carelessness is no excuse. As such, it is a breach of
scholarly responsibility. It is also unethical and in some cases, illegal. Looking at or copying someone
else’s test, answer sheet, and/or paper are counted as cheating. Plagiarism may result in an “F” in the
course.
Quizzes: There will be 10 quizzes comprised of 10 questions, covering the week’s reading assignment.
Exams: Examinations will consist of a Midterm and a Final
Resume and Cover Letter: Using the course materials, class discussions, and your work experience,
create a resume and cover letter for submission to an organization of your choice.
Research Paper: A 3-5 page (Not including cover page and references) research paper will be a
requirement for this class. At least three references (professional journals, significant research, books,
etc.) are required and must be documented using APA guidelines. Students will present an Executive
Summary of the paper to the class using presentation tools and skills learned in the course.
PPT/Oral Presentation: Prepare a presentation (5-7 Slides) on their research paper and present it to the
class.
