You are required to attend all tutorial sessions, and tutorial participation is compulsory. Tutorials begin in after the first week of classes. Students must only attend the tutorial for which they have enrolled. If you attend other sessions, you will be marked absent and this will negatively affect your grade. Each absence from tutorial will result in a one percent reduction in the final course grade. Falsifying attendance sheets for yourself or another person is considered personation (see Academic misconduct below.) You will also be counted absent if you come to class but have not completed assigned work or do not complete in-class assignments. You will be counted absent if you come more than 15 minutes late to class, or if you leave more than 15 minutes before dismissal. DO NOT make any travel plans during the midterm or exam periods. Travel arrangements should not be made until after the Final Exam Schedule has been posted. There will be NO accommodation for absences from exams due to travel plans. The midterm exam is on. The exam period takes place from April 18 until May 1, 2018. N.B. - Monday, January 22, 2018 is the last day to add winter term courses. It is also the deadline for withdrawal with tuition refund from winter term courses. Class Etiquette It is expected that all students will contribute to a supportive and non-discriminatory learning environment by respecting basic classroom courtesy and displaying professional behavior. Late arrivals, early departures, ringing cell phones, text messaging and eating are all disruptive activities that negatively affect classroom learning, reflecting disrespect and inattention to colleagues.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
