A Word on Grading Policies:

Late papers will be penalized (barring extraordinary circumstances). Failure to turn in a required piece of work (essay, response, project, exam) will result in a failing grade.

Remember, plagiarism, even if commited unintentionally, is a very serious academic offense; it can result in failing a class, or in being separated from the College. If you are uncertain about what constitutes plagiarism, please follow this link to the Writing Center.

Generally speaking, here is what the grades that I give mean:

4.0s are very, very rare; fortunately, so are 1.0s.
