Attendance: College policy states: "Students at Brazosport College are expected to attend class regularly. No unexcused absences or 'cuts' are allowed...Students are responsible for all class work done during any absence."

Withdrawal Policy: Students who are absent more than 20% of the total number of class days will be withdrawn from the course. Students who are habitually tardy will have 1/2 day absence counted for every time they are tardy or leave class early, this will be counted in the 20%.

Grades: Grades will be determined by the following system:

                                             Unit Tests (3)                                       60%
                                             Labs & Quizzes                                   20%
                                             Final Examination                               20%

Make-up Work: No labs will be made up. Instead, one of the lab grades will be dropped before averaging. If a student misses more than one lab, s/he will be given a zero. Test make-up will be handled on an individual basis.

Work turned in late will be assessed a 20% penalty if one day late, 50% for two days and will not be accepted thereafter unless the student makes previous arrangements with the instructor.
