Academic Dishonesty Policy:



The Student Conduct Code in the Ga
inesville State College Student Handbook states that

plagiarism
and other forms of academic dishonesty are prohibited.


Penalties and due process procedures are
discussed in this section of the handbook.


Plagiarism/Copyright:



Accidental or intentional
--
will be dealt with in accordance with the Student Conduct Code in the
Gainesville State College Student Handbook. Plagiarism will be grounds for failing the assignment
and perhaps the course. Both Federal and State laws forbid th
e unlawful duplication of copyrighted
computer software or other reproductions of copyrighted material. In accordance with these policies,
Gainesville State College expressly forbids the copying of such materials supplied by or used in the
College. Unlawfu
l duplication of copyrighted materials by a user may result in disciplinary action by
the College under the Student Conduct Code (Non
-
Academic Infractions
--
Prohibitions, Theft), and/or
possible criminal action by the owner of the copyright.


No
-
Show
Policy:



Online
Students must log into their eLearning courses

prior to the end of the ADD/DROP deadline
to
confirm their attendance. If you fail to log into the course
prior to the ADD/DROP deadline,
I will

report you as a “No
-
Show.”


Technology Require
ments:



Hardware Requirements



You must have continuous access to a reliable computer with high
-
speed
Internet access (Broadband/DSL). Students who work at home are responsible for their own Internet
connection and installation of software.

l be accepted for not meeting Lab Deadlines
due to at home computer problems, software problems, and/or Internet connection problems.

yourself time to use the campus labs when you have off

campus computer issues or failures.

10

for Windows (US Version) is required and
A
LL

files submitted must

Deadline Policy:



Don’t procrastinate!
More unsatisfactory grades are due to procrastination than any other cause. Do
not assume that you can complete the homework in the
last thirty minutes before the deadline. The
most successful students start work several days before it is due. Online cl
asses, particularly, seem to
invite procrastination, so be particularly careful to avoid procrastination.



Assignments are due at the scheduled times.
Assignments not turned in on time will receive a zero.
Exams must be taken at the scheduled times


the
re will be no makeup’s.


Course Schedule:



The course schedule is to help you

of the course status. You should
refer to it weekly, to see if it has been revised and whenever you are about to complete an assignment.

Make sure that you insert the assignment dates into your planner.
