Attendance, Grades, & Exam


Students will sign a code of conduct before participating in the program as part of their admission into the program.  Students know that attendance will be taken each and every day.  Missing more than ten minutes of class (at the beginning, middle, or end of the class) will be counted as an absence.  Missing more than one class will result in dismissal from the program with no credit or refund.


Students will be given take-home exams.  Instructions and deadlines will be provided in the syllabus.
