Regent’s policy statement
The University System of Georgia requires that all students enrolled in undergraduate degree programs in University System institutions (including Georgia Gwinnett College) successfully complete all parts of a competency examination in reading and English composition. This competency examination is commonly called "the Regents' Test", and it is free of charge. A student has two attempts to pass this test before accumulating 45 hours of collegiate credit. Please sign up for the Regents' Test when you enroll in English 1102. Do this in time to have two attempts before accumulating 45 credit hours.
Americans with disabilities act statement
If you are a student who is disabled as defined under the Americans with Disabilities Act and require assistance or support services, please seek assistance through the Center for Disability Services. A CDS Counselor will coordinate those services.

Affirmative action statement
Georgia Gwinnett College adheres to affirmative action policies designed to promote diversity and equal opportunity for all faculty and students.
The college exists to foster educational excellence. To this end, a classroom atmosphere that supports learning must be maintained. Students are expected to be active, attentive participants in the class. Students are also expected to abide by class policies and procedures and to treat faculty and other students in a professional, respectful manner. Students are expected to be familiar with the student conduct code published in the Student Handbook.
All portions of any test, project or final exam submitted by you for a grade must be your own work. Cheating includes any attempt to defraud, deceive or mislead the instructor in arriving at an honest grade assessment. Plagiarism is a form of cheating that involves presenting as one's own, ideas or work of another. Violation of the Academic Integrity Policy will result in a grade of "0" for that test, project or exam. The second offense will result in assignment of a grade of "F" for the course and a formal charge of Academic Dishonesty will be lodged with the Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs. Policies have been established by Georgia Gwinnett College to insure due process in charges of cheating or plagiarism. A copy of these procedures can be found in the GGC Student Handbook.
School of Science and Technology Policies:
You are expected to attend each class meeting. Attendance may be taken by various methods that could include clicker or written quizzes in the first 5 minutes of class, or sign in sheets. This information will be taken into account at the end of the semester when grades are calculated, if you are on the borderline.
Special arrangements to take a regular exam early must be made in advance and in writing, if a pressing obligation prevents you from taking an exam.
Students must notify Professor THE DAY of the exam if an emergency arises and they miss the exam. Notification may be by email, text or phone message is acceptable. A makeup will be scheduled within two days of the original exam. Makeup exams may not be the same format as the regular exam. Other formats include essay or oral exams to a faculty panel. A valid written excuse for missing the regular exam is required. (Police report, ER forms, doctor's note, etc.)
Drop for non-attendance
Students who never attend a class by the end of the first two weeks of the term will be reported for non-attendance. Students who do not drop a class during the schedule adjustment period and are reported for non-attendance will be automatically dropped from that course.
You will not get a good grade in the course without an excellent attendance. If you miss a class, you are responsible for all lecture notes, slides, assignments, and other. All students are allowed 3 absences from class in the semester with no penalty for crisis or non-crisis reasons. Students who miss four or five class sessions will be subject to a substantial grade deduction of 5 points. After six absences, it is recommended that you drop the course.
This course syllabus provides a general plan for the course. The professor reserves the right to make changes to the syllabus, including changes to assignments, projects, examinations, etc., in order to accommodate the needs of the class as a whole and fulfill the goals of the course.
