POLICIES/PROCEDURES: It is essential that all classes be attended to receive a passing grade. Classes consist of lecture, discussion and activities when applicable. Excessive absences could result in a final grade of "F". Tests and assignments are directly related to information discussed in class. Make-up tests are given only when arrangements are made in advance or in a timely manner. It is the student's responsibility to withdraw from a class. The last day to withdraw is April 12. Please select a seat for the semester by the second class meeting. The ACCESS Office-Disability Support Services (G-215, 644-9039) has been designated by the College as the primary office to assist students with disabilities. If any student in this class has a need for special testing arrangements, note taking, or other accommodations, please feel free to discuss your approved accommodations with me.

ASSIGNMENTS/TESTS: There are four units of study. Assignments/projects will be given in each unit. Some assignments/projects make use of the Internet. Any assignment/project which involves researching and providing a short paper must be done using a word processor. Handwritten work is not accepted except when noted. A test will be given after each unit.

GRADES: Final grades are determined by the percentage of points earned out of points possible.
