Students are to be prepared at the start of each class with assigned work and supplies. Students who do not participate in class critiques or individual discussions with faculty when scheduled to do so should not expect private critiques with faculty at a later date.
Assignments are due at the beginning of class on the day they are due. Major assignments that are overdue but turned in within 24 hours will be deducted a full letter grade for lateness. An additional letter grade will be deducted per additional day late. This policy includes weekends, holidays, snow days, etc.
It should be further noted that faculty are frequently called upon to recommend students for professional positions upon graduation and are contacted by potential employers as references. In such instances, reliability is always discussed. Students with a responsible record of attendance are likely to receive favorable recommendations.
