Poesia/Theoria 201701 — Policies

Letter Grade and Percentage Equivalencies: Our marking follows the University’s established grading guidelines, dosage which are as follows: A+ 90-100, story A 85-89, A- 80-84, B+ 75-79, B 70-74, B- 65-69, C+ 60-64, C 55-59, D 50-54, F 0-49.

Policy on Absences: It is your responsibility to come to class regularly. If you must be absent for an extended period of time, please inform us 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.

Late Policy: Late papers will be penalized 5% per day, deducted at 4:30 p.m. on Mondays. Papers more than 5 days late will not be graded. Naturally, issues of illness, accident, etc. constitute exceptional circumstances, and consideration may be granted where they obtain. Documentation of such circumstances may be required for accommodation to be granted.

Plagiarism: Any incident of plagiarism will result in a zero for the course. In brief, plagiarism is the unacknowledged use of another person’s words or ideas, whether directly quoted or paraphrased, as though they were your own. The guidelines on what constitutes plagiarism are very clear and are available through a variety of sources, including the University Calendar. A simple rule of thumb: CITE FIRST, ASK QUESTIONS LATER.
