3. Late-work policies Turning in work within 24 hours after an assignment is due will result in a 50% grade reduction for the assignment. Any work submitted later than 24 hours after the deadline will receive no credit. 4. Make-up work policies Students may be excused in the event of an illness or emergency at the discretion of the course coordinator provided that the course coordinator is notified PRIOR to the scheduled start of the assessment. For any illnesses, the student will be required to show documentation from a medical provider to be eligible for a make-up assessment. For any emergencies, the student will be required to show documentation at the discretion of the course coordinator. If the student does not contact the course coordinator PRIOR to the scheduled assessment he/she will receive a zero for the assessment. The format of the make-up assessment will be at the discretion of the individual faculty members. 5. Laboratory dress requirements Professional Dress Professional dress, including a lab jacket and name tag, is required for all lab sections and practicals. No shorts, denim, frayed or torn clothing, or inappropriate shoes (i.e. sneakers, flip-flops, Uggs, Crocs, open-toed shoes) will be allowed. Men must wear a collared shirt, but do not have to wear a tie unless they are participating in a patient practical. Students that are not professionally dressed will receive a zero for that week’s participation. Professional Behavior Students are expected to behave in a professional manner at all times during labs. Students who behave unprofessionally (e.g, cell phone use, texting, use of inappropriate websites on a personal computer, such as email or Facebook, food or drink in the lab) will receive a zero for their participation grade for that week. 6. Communication requirements In the event of an emergency, every effort should be made to speak with a course coordinator prior to the beginning of the lab session, exam, or other assessment, including leaving a voice mail for a course coordinator. Should a student not be able to get in contact with a course coordinator, every effort should be made to leave a message with an administrative assistant (215) 503-9000. 7.

The feedback provided to course coordinators and faculty is of extreme importance in JSP’s continuous quality improvement. It is expected that students will voice their comments and criticisms in a constructive manner and it should be noted that the expression of criticism or problems through the use of abusive language or disruptive behavior directed toward a class or an instructor is inconsistent with the demeanor aspiring professionals should be seeking to develop. 8. Second chance option Students who wish to invoke the Second Chance option should refer to the JSP Student Handbook for the policy and procedure related to this process.

    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.
