Attendance: Students are expected to attend all classes, lectures and field trips. Absences must be accompanied by the appropriate Dean’s or doctor’s excuse to be validated. Unexcused absences and lates will result in a lowering of the class participation grade. Students will be responsible for all material covered in classes that they have missed. Project schedules will not be shifted and late penalties will be added to work submitted after the listed due date. The use of cellular phones is strictly prohibited. Students may listen to music through headphones during working periods only. No food or beverages are allowed at computer stations.
