Academic Dishonesty Policy:



The Student Conduct Code in the Gainesville State College Student Handbook states that

plagiarism
and other forms of academic dishonesty are pr
ohibited.


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 Handboo
k. Plagiarism will be grounds for failing the assignment
and perhaps the course. Both Federal and State laws forbid the 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. Unlawful duplication of copyrighted materials by a user may result in disciplinary action by
the College under the Student Conduct Code (Non
-
Acad
emic 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 Requirements:



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.


No excuses will be accepted for not meetin
g Lab Deadlines
due to at home computer problems, software problems, and/or Internet connection problems.


Give
yourself time to use the campus labs when you have off
-
campus computer issues or failures.

Microsoft
Office Professional Edition 2007 for Window
s (US Version) is required and
A
LL

files submitted must
have the

Microsoft Office 2007 extension.


Deadline Policy:



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



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


there will be no makeup’s.


Course Schedule:



The course schedule is to help you
plan, organize and
stay abreast

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.

CompTIA
Network +
Certification:





This course promotes CompTIA Network+ Certification as the ideal certification for anyone
that wants to demonstrate
competency in managing, maintaining,
troubleshooting, installing
and configuring basic network infrastructure.




Any student that passes
the CompTIA Network + Certification exam

will be exempt from the
Course Final and automatically receive a grade of “A.”
The Network + Certification exam

must be taken prior to the Course Final to receive course credit.
Students must submit all
required course assignments, with a grade of 70% or higher, as scheduled until
the
Network + Certification exam is completed.




Anyone can take the Network+ exam at

any time, but m
issing any schedule assignment will
disqualify you from receiving course credit
should you pass the exam.
