See attached weekly schedule for assignments and due dates.
All possible points and assignments are subject to change at Professor’s discretion at
Late assignments will not be accepted under any circumstances unless you contact me
with a valid excuse (e.g., illness, death in family, work commitment) before the
assignment is due and make arrangements to turn it in at a later time. If you fail to
contact me beforehand, you will receive a zero for that assignment. If you contact me
with a valid excuse and a new due date is agreed upon, the assignment will be
considered late if it is not turned in by that new date unless you contact me again.
Consider due dates as a deadline. If there is no prior communication prior to the due
date, it is simply a deadline that was missed – no credit.
Three tests will be given over the course of this semester. These test will be in class.
Cell phone/tablet use is not allowed. Any instance of looking at cell phone will result in
automatic zero for test, and possible further actions.
I want to make it clear that phone use is not allowed during tests, and any use will be
treated as cheating, no matter the explanation. You will need a calculator for the test.
The simplest calculator will do fine. It is up to you to have a calculator; I will not have
extras. If you come to class without, you will have to complete your test without a
Academic Honesty Statement:
Any act of academic dishonesty, including plagiarism, committed by a student may be
penalized with an “F” for the assignment or for the course in question at the discretion of
the instructor. Academic institutions have the responsibility to promote the highest
standards of ethics among students. Hence, Tiffin University places the highest value on
Accounting Department Policy is that no cell phones or any device with internet access
is allowed on examinations. Any academic dishonesty on an examination will result in an
F (Failure) for the course.
Attendance is expected and is vital in order to do well in this course. It is understood
that situations may arise that you may need to miss class, but precautions should be
done in advance. Participation is a very important part of this class, and cannot be
done if you are not in class. Missed classes will result in lower participation grade. If
you have more than seven (7) unexcused classes, this will result in an automatic failure
of the class.
Attendance by Athletes:
Athletes may not miss a class for practice in any sport. If an athlete misses a class due
to a game, it is completely understood that the athlete is responsible for all the work
covered in that class (to include lecture notes, readings and any additional information
distributed in class). The appropriate information from the Athletic Director or coach must
be submitted to the professor prior to missing class due to an athletic event. Failure to do
so is against athletic policy. Please see the 2019 / 2020 Academic Bulletin for the policies
related to attendance by athletes, beginning on page 41, and continuing on page 42.
