CROSS-CULTURAL COURSES (X) In order to fulfill FSU’s Cross-Cultural Studies requirement, the student must earn a “C-“ or better in the course.
--UPDATED AFTER HURRICANE IRMA-- 4 COURSE POLICIES 1) Bring the required readings (Merriman, Restall, and Schwartz) with you to every class meeting. 2) Turn off cellphones when you enter the class. UNIVERSITY ATTENDANCE POLICY: Excused absences include documented illness, deaths in the family and other documented crises, call to active military duty or jury duty, religious holy days, and official University activities. These absences will be accommodated in a way that does not arbitrarily penalize students who have a valid excuse. Consideration will also be given to students whose dependent children experience serious illness. MISSED EXAMS: If you have an EXCUSED absence, you will need to notify the instructor of any valid, verifiable excuse in advance and provide documentation for the absence. There will be no make-up exams unless I receive an "Excused Absence Form" from the Dean of Students. A missed exam due to unacceptable reasons will result in a ‘0’ (F) for that exam. Note: All make-up exams will be based on the same information, but are understandably different and will reflect the additional time you have had to study. LATE PAPERS: The same valid excuses apply for late papers. Late papers (i.e. those submitted after the deadlines) will lose ten percent for every day they are late. ACADEMIC HONOR POLICY: The Florida State University Academic Honor Policy outlines the University's expectations for the integrity of students' academic work, the procedures for resolving alleged violations of those expectations, and the rights and responsibilities of students and faculty members throughout the process. Students are responsible for reading the Academic Honor Policy and for living up to their pledge to "...be honest and truthful and...[to] strive for personal and institutional integrity at Florida State University."(Florida State University Academic Honor Policy, found at - and-grievances/academic-honor-policy .) You must do your own work and make sure that your work is not being plagiarized by others. Failure to abide by the Honor Code could result in a “0” for the assignment, an “F” for this course, and/or possible dismissal or suspension from the University. In other words - do your own work. AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT: Students with disabilities needing academic accommodation should: (1) register with and provide documentation to the Student Disability Resource Center; and (2) bring a letter to the instructor indicating the need for accommodation and what type. Please note that instructors are not allowed to provide classroom accommodation to a student until appropriate verification from the Student Disability Resource Center has been provided.
