integrity and a high standard of academic conduct. Activities that violate academic integrity
undermine the quality and diminish the value of educational achievement.
Cheating on papers, tests, or other academic works is a violation of College rules. No student
shall engage in behavior that, in the judgment of the instructor of the class, may be construed as
cheating. This may include, but is not limited to, plagiarism or other forms of academic
dishonesty such as the acquisition without permission of tests or other academic materials and/or
distribution of these materials and other academic work. This includes students who aid and abet
as well as those who attempt such behavior.

Fall 2014

Due Dates & Deadlines


The Syllabus and Course Calendar are two important tools to help students understand the
course, student and instructor expectations, and deadlines. Both documents can be found under in
the course within Blackboard.
Students are required to submit work on time for a chance to receive credit. Deadlines for each
week/assignment are summarized on the course calendar. Students should check the calendar
frequently for deadlines and to be aware of what to expect next. Deadlines are subject to change.
ONLINE INTERNET ASSIGNMENTS: Students are responsible for timely assignment
submission. Should a computer system or network go down, students must still turn in work in a
timely manner. Dont wait until the last minute. Plan ahead by seeking alternative means for
submitting work before needed. Local libraries and all Ivy Tech Community College campuses
can serve as alternative resources. Contact the closest/most convenient campus or other public
lab for schedules and Internet availability. Not having access to the required software on a home
or work computer is not a legitimate excuse for turning in homework late.
Attendance Policy Dont Get Dropped from Class!
LAST DAY TO DROP FOR 100% REFUND: 9-9-2014
While it is important to be timely and on-schedule throughout any course, students need to be
aware of an important college policy. Ivy Tech performs administrative drops for students who
do not attend class early in the semester. Attendance in an online course is determined by
whether a student has submitted work or not. Assignments may actually be due on another day
(see course calendar), but students need to turn in something worth points before the NSW
deadline in order to avoid being dropped for non-attendance.
Last Day to Withdraw: November 15, 2014
If a student wishes to withdraw from this course, students are responsible for completing an
official withdrawal form with the registrar. The last day to withdraw from this course is:
Right of Revision
The college reserves the right to change any statements, policies or scheduling as necessary.
Students will be informed promptly of any and all changes.

COURSE COMMUNICATION
Instructor Commitment
Ivy Tech Community College instructors are committed to responding to students within two
business days. If a student sends communication, but does not receive a response, they should
double-check that the correct communication method was used and that the correct location is
being checked for a reply.
Email: all students must use the email function of the course for course-related communications.
Students can send email from within the course in Blackboard, but will not receive responses
inside the course. All emails are received in the Campus Connect email system. Students can
also use the Campus Connect email system to send email.
