Attendance & Tardiness Policy
The Business Information Technology Program attendance policy allows a maximum of nine
absences (15%) prior to mandatory withdrawal from the course
Tardiness and leaving class early is disruptive to the class. Both things distract other students
and the instructor and interrupt the learning process. The student who does not attend the
full class session does not receive full benefit of the class that day. Multiple students coming
in tardy or leaving early negatively impedes the progress of the entire class. Consequently,
anyone who is tardy and/or leaves class early more than 10% of the time which is a total of
six times during the quarter will be required to withdraw from the course. Absences are not
included in this count since they affect only the individual.
Evaluation
After basic requirements have been fulfilled, the final grade will be determined by averaging
the three highest grades on three minute timings. All assigned exercises must be completed
for a minimum grade of D (1.0).
Up to an additional 0.5 will be added to the timing grade for successfully completing the
Word document test.
Everyone will be granted the grace of three late assignments. Once the grace has been
utilized, 0.1 will be deducted from final grade for each late assignment.
Course may be taken for S/NC grade, notify instructor before end of quarter if you select this
option.
