2 COURSE MATERIALS Required: Fundamentals of Advanced Accounting (1st Edition) by Fischer, Taylor, & Cheng (South-Western, 2008) (ISBN 10: 0-324-37890-4). UNT AND/OR DEPARTMENT OF ACCOUNTING POLICIES Academic Dishonesty The university’s policy on academic dishonesty and disruption of the academic process are clearly set forth in the University of North Texas (UNT) Graduate and Undergraduate Catalogs. These policies will be strictly enforced. Additionally, punishment for academic dishonesty will result in an automatic “F” in the course and possibly suspension or expulsion from UNT. W/WF Grades A “W” grade will be given to students who drop the course by the UNT deadline for the last day to drop/withdraw from a course without academic penalty. After this deadline, students who drop/withdraw from the course will be subject to a “W” or "WF" grade. Exam Retention After the exams are graded, the instructor will review the exam with the class and collect all exams. All exams will be retained for one year, and then destroyed. Religious Observations Students who anticipate the necessity of being absent from class due to the observation of a major religious observance must provide notice of the date(s) to the instructor, in writing, during the first week of the semester.
