You will need to provide documentation of your disability to the Disability Resources (DR) office, located on the main floor of the Student Services Building, Room 1076, 5152946624. You must present me with your accommodations paper work one week before an exam or the accommodations will not work for that exam. Harassment and Discrimination ISU strives to maintain our campus as a place of work and study for faculty, staff, and students that is free of all forms of prohibited discrimination and harassment based upon race, ethnicity, sex (including sexual assault), pregnancy, color, religion, national origin, physical or mental disability, age, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, genetic information, or status as a U.S. veteran. Any student who has concerns about such behavior should contact his/her instructor, Student Assistance at 5152941020 or email firstname.lastname@example.org, or Office of Equal Opportunity and Compliance at 5152947612. Religious Accommodation: If an academic or work requirement conflicts with your religious practices and/or observances, you may request reasonable accommodations. Your request must be in writing, and your instructor or supervisor will review the request. You or your instructor may also seek assistance from the Dean of Students Office or the Office of Equal Opportunity and Compliance. Ethical Conduct: You are expected to follow the College of Business Professional Standards and Expectations. Academic honesty is particularly important to me. Any student caught cheating on an exam will automatically fail the exam and possibly the course and will be reported to the Dean of Students. See the Conduct Code at www.dso.iastate.edu/ja for more details and a full explanation of the Academic Misconduct policies. Class Absences: Inclass quizzes cannot be made up after the quiz has been given or before it has been given to the class . You have to be present in class the day of the quiz. There are no exceptions. Similarly, online quizzes in Blackboard will not have their due dates extended. The policies regarding inclass quizzes and online quizzes have no exceptions. My quiz policy applies to all situations including but not limited to, technology issues, Blackboard issues, illness, hospitalization, reoccurring medical issues which cause you not to come to class, school sponsored trips and activities, nonschool sponsored trips and activities, death of a family member, death of a friend’s family member, personal crisis (example, your honeydo dumped you), car problems, earthquakes, snow storms, temperamental family members, friends who need attention, family vacations, incarceration (jail time), oversleeping, and of course, food poisoning from takeout food. Exams: Exams are very important as they constitute a large part of your grade. I do not give makeup exams after the exam has been given to the rest of the class. If a student is going to miss an exam for a legitimate reason (examples include but are not limited to: funeral, required school function, surgery, military service), you need to let me know as soon as possible and at least one week prior to an exam. It is MY discretion whether or not accommodations will be made. If you oversleep, then get here as soon as you can and find me. If you become ill then call me before the exam begins at my ISU phone number 515 2948337 and email me. They key is to contact me as soon as possible in the event an emergency arises. If you come to the wrong section time to take your exam or quiz, I will give you a zero on your exam or quiz. If you ask me about switching sessions to take your exam or quiz at a different time, I will also give you a zero on the exam/quiz.
