The High Point University Honor Code expects all students to act in a manner so as not to infringe upon
the rights and responsibilities of others. It is crucial to the development of a college student that one

responsibility of each student to help maintain such a society.
The High Point University Honor code affirms that:
Every student is honor bound to refrain from conduct which is unbecoming of a
University student and that brings discredit to the student or High Point
Every student is honor bound to refrain from cheating.
Every student is honor bound to refra
Every student is honor bound to refrain from plagiarism.
Every student has the right to report an honor code violation.

Co ur s e Po l i c i e s:
You may withdraw from this course for any reason, without a failing grade, anytime up until the published
university withdrawal date. After this withdrawal period, all withdrawing students will receive a withdrawn failing
or withdrawn pa
ssing grade for the class. The instructor reserves the right to evaluate individual cases of students
withdrawing after the published deadline for class withdrawals.
Class Attendance and Participation Policy
Class attendance and participation are mandat
All readings and other assignments and projects, some quizzes,
and all tests will be announced in class. Class lectures will assume all assignments have been completed. Students
are allowed five
excused or unexcused absences. After which time, the
instructor has the right to notify the student
of the intent to drop the student after the next absence. Following the sixth absence, the instructor has the right to
drop the student from the class. If a class is missed, it is the student's responsibilit
y to obtain assignments, lecture
notes, etc. from his or her peers.
There is no make
up policy for absences which are not excused and cleared by the instructor ahead of time. Any
unexcused missing of an examination will result
in a zero. Excused absences will be made up on a case
basis subject to the instructor’s approval. Generally, all excused absences must be documented and approved
with the instructor or through the Dean of Academic Affairs office. Fail
ure to secure such documentation
or instructor permission will result in an unexcused absence.
Late Assignment/Project Policy
Assignments and projects are accepted after the due date with a 10% penalty for each class meeting day they are
late. Once the a
ssignment or project is completed and turned in, it is graded like all others, a score is derived, and
the percentage off late penalty is then assigned from the graded score. Any exception to this policy must be obtained
from the instructor of the class.
Petitions for waving the penalty will be evaluated on a case
Academic Dishonesty Policy
Any student who cheats during an examination or who assists another student in cheating during an examination will
automatically fail the exam at the
minimum. The case will also be forwarded to the Dean of Academic Affairs for
University action. Cheating includes, but is not limited to, unauthorized crib sheets or notes, copying answers from
another student’s exam, unauthorized use of any device to ai
d in the examination, or gaining unauthorized access to
the exams or its answers prior to the assigned date.
Incomplete Grades Policy
Incomplete grades will be given only under the most extreme situations. Documented extended illness or prior
tended absence from the University by the class instructor or the Dean of Academic Affairs are two of
a very select set of scenarios in which an incomplete may be given in the class. In this type of situation, all class
assignments remain firm; however, t
he individual is not penalized so long as any make
up work is completed
within a mutually agreed upon time period.
Grade Appeals Policy
It is the student’s responsibility to keep all graded materials that have been returned. The instructor’s grades will
assumed to be accurate unless you
can prove to the contrary. Any student wishing to appeal a
to the instructor
must submit a written appeal indicating the specific class and section the student is
requesting a reevaluation of the grad
ing within. In addition, a complete explanation
of why the student feels they deserve a different grade is required. Any documentation supporting the
student’s position should be submitted at that time. Verbal grade appeal
s are not accepted.
Course evaluations will be conducted during the last week of the class in the Fall semester of 2009.
Students Needing Academic Accommodations
Students who require classroom accommodations due to a diagnosed disabili
ty must submit the appropriate
documentation to Mrs. Irene Ingersoll, Coordinator for Disability Support, 405 Smith Library. Please inform her of
your need for accommodations at the beginning of the semester. It is your responsibility as a college student
advocate for yourself. Accommodations are not retroactive.
It should be noted that being prepared, coming to class, and taking notes are necessary but not sufficient
conditions for doing well in this course. Many of the concepts covered in this class
need to be reinforced through
use and study outside of class to become part of the student’s knowledge domain.
