All assignments are due at the beginning of class on the designated date, unless otherwise noted. Final video assignments must be successfully deployed on the web to be considered turned-in.
Late assignments and make-up tests will NOT be accepted for credit.
Assignments may not be submitted electronically, except by prior arrangement with the instructor. All writing assignments must be typed.
College guidelines for academic integrity are strictly enforced. Using
the words, ideas, or audio/video/graphics files of others, without attributing
proper credit to the author, constitutes plagiarism, which will result
in failure of the project, and possible failure of the class and expulsion
from the college. Students must document the original sources of all material
that is not his/her own.
Refer to the Student Code of Conduct in the Student Handbook.
Course work at NEiA is very hands-on and students are expected to attend class on a regular basis. Poor attendance will affect a student’s final grade in a class as follows:
Our college-wide standard is, that a student with more than 3 absences (2 during Summer Semester) will have their earned academic grade lowered one letter grade (ex: B+ to C+). More than 4 absences (3 during Summer Semester) will lower their grade to D.
Students are responsible for making up assignments and communicating with their instructors regarding missing classes. All faculty members have school voice mail and email to help students contact them.
The college does not distinguish between excused or unexcused absences.
A student who misses all of his or her classes for two consecutive weeks will be withdrawn from the college.
If a student arrives late or leaves early from class, it is noted in
the attendance roster.
4 late arrivals/early departures = 1 absence
Further, if a student misses more then 30 minutes of class, he/she will be marked with a one-half absence for that class.
2 half absences = 1 absence
Students must adhere to all lab rules during class. Food and beverages are not permitted in the computer labs.
Respect for self, instructor, and classmates is required at all times. Refer to Student Handbook for Student Code of Conduct.
Students must turn off cell phones, beepers, and portable audio devices during class. You may be asked to leave the class for any of the events listed below. If you are asked to leave, you will not be allowed to return for the duration of the class and you will be marked absent for the entire class. If the problem occurs again during the semester you will be removed from the course and your tuition will not be refunded.
You will be asked to leave the class if:
You place or answer a phone call during class
You use chat/IM or email software during a lecture or an in class assignment
