20 Points - Optional Internet Research Report:
The instructions, contained in a separate handout, should be followed carefully.
This report MUST be turned in on time to receive any extra credit points!
IX. ATTENDANCE: Regular class and lab attendance is expected! Failure to attend class does not constitute an automatic withdrawal.
Students wishing to withdraw must follow College policy and time lines.
The student is
responsible for all information and assignments given in
class during their absence. The student is expected to be prepared for any exam or quiz when they resume classes. Exams are primarily
based on lecture, lab, and video materials. Students arriving late to class will not be given additional time to complete an exam.
IF YOU MISS A REGULAR EXAM DATE YOU MAY TAKE A MAKEUP EXAM AS DESCRIBED BELOW
The written portion of the make up exams consist of 10 complete essay questions therefore a greater amount of time should be allowed to
complete these tests. Students that have done well in the past have taken 3 to 4 hours to complete the makeup exam.
The photo potion of the make-up exam is the same format as the original though the structures to be labeled will vary.
NOTE: lab exercises are still due prior to the regular exam
regardless of when you
take the make up.
They can be e-mailed, mailed, or dropped off.
The make up exam is to be completed no later than 2 weeks after the regular exam and must be taken at the
Metro Assessment Center.
Please check before going to the metro assessment center to make sure the exam is there.

XI. DISTANCE LEARNING CLASSES: Information regarding distance learning classes can be found at the website - http://londonwebsite.info
XII. WITHDRAWAL: Withdrawal from a course for academic reasons must be initiated by a student prior to the withdrawal deadlines published in the Class Schedule booklet each semester. Withdrawal must be in writing on specific forms available in the Office of Admissions and Records at each campus. Students who officially withdraw from a course prior to the last day of the second week of the semester will have no notation made on their permanent record. While an instructor may withdraw a student for excessive absences as outlined above, students not attending classes for any reasons should not expect an instructor to drop them officially from class. It is the student’s responsibility to withdraw from class officially by completing a withdrawal form from the Office of Admissions and Records by the deadline date. Failure to do so could result in an “F” grade for the course.
XIII. INCOMPLETE (I) GRADES: An “I” (incomplete) grade means that a student
has not completed course requirements as outlined in section on “Evaluation Procedures” due to circumstances judged by the instructor to be beyond the student’s control. The student must request an “I” (incomplete) grade. It is not granted automatically. Incomplete grades must be removed no later than the sixth week of the academic semester.
XIV. ACADEMIC CREDIT: aware one (1) semester hour of college credit, the Ohio Board of Regents require two hours of significant student study outside the class for each one hour in class for the equivalent of an academic semester (16 weeks). This is a two credit hour class with two hours of lecture. Therefore, the required course load requirement is four hours of effective student effort per week for the entire semester. Course requirements have been designed to comply with the requirements of the Board of Regents. Make sure you can give this course an average of 4 hours a week by prioritizing your time accordingly. Proper planning, prioritization and dedication will enhance your success in this course.
XV. CHEATING: Any student found cheating or plagiarizing would be withdrawn from class with a letter grade of F. Cheating includes but is not limited to copying from another student’s exam, quiz or homework assignments. This includes both present and past students.
XVI. AMERICAN WITH DISABILITIES ACT STATEMENT: Any student with a documented disability (e.g. physical, learning, psychiatric, visual, hearing, etc.) who needs to arrange reasonable accommodations may contact The Access/Disabled Student Services office.
