Policies

Late Policy:

Draft Term Paper: if this comes in late, cialis you will be penalized 7% per day, no rx since you will be costing your peer precious time to produce the critique in time for the next due date. You will also see the time you have to rewrite in light of your peer’s critique diminished correspondingly (i.e., salve your final paper due date will remain firm, but your peer has a good deal of latitude in getting the critique done).

Final Term Paper: if this comes in late, you will be penalized 5% per day. After two weeks I will not mark it. Late papers may receive no end comments, but simply have a grade assigned.

Critique: if this comes in late, you will be penalized 7% per day, again because you are delaying the person whose paper you critiqued. If it is late, it may receive no comments, but only a grade.

Response Papers: will not be accepted after the start of class; they will be penalized 5% if they come in after 8:00 a.m. on the day they are due (i.e., between 8:01 am and 11:00 am Thursdays).

Letter Grade and Percentage Equivalencies:

Though the usual grading scale applies in graduate school, the de facto range of grades is B+ to A+. I normally expect PhD students to get As, MA students with aspirations of PhD programs to get A-/As, and MA students not going on to get B+/A-s.

90-100 = A+         85-89 = A        80-84 = A-           77-79 = B+           76 and lower = unacceptable

Absences: It is your responsibility to come to class regularly. If you must be absent for an extended period of time, please inform me as far ahead of time as possible. Cases of continuous unexplained absence may result in a penalty to your grade or your ineligibility to complete the class; attending class is part of fulfilling its requirements.

Extensions: No extensions will be given except in extreme – and verifiable – circumstances.

Plagiarism: Any incident of plagiarism will result in a zero for the course. It will be reported to the Graduate Adviser, who will pass it on to the Faculty of Graduate Studies, which keeps a record of such offences.
