Up to 24 hours after time due --- 25% penalty
Over 24 hours after time due --- 100% penalty


Tests: Exams are cumulative in nature for this programming class. Absence from a test is excused only in a personal medical emergency. No makeup exams are allowed without prior approval of instructor.


Class attendance: Class attendance is required. Program concepts, techniques, and hints are presented during class time, so class attendance is essential for successful completion of assignments. Regular attendance will improve your performance.


Academic integrity: You are expected to do your own work.  Cheating on assignments and/or tests will result in an F for the assignment or test. California State University, Los Angeles is committed to intellectual integrity and considers academic dishonesty a very serious offense. Cheating (i.e. substantial help given or received by a student on a homework assignment, regardless who is at fault) will be punished and may result in an automatic F.
