Grading & Attendance Policies

The course includes the 4 assignments described above.

Research and short papers may be assigned throughout the course.
Scheduled due dates might be subject to change.

Graduate Students
Students in MFA, MA, and Post-Bac programs are expected to produce work at a level appropriate for students in a graduate program. They are required to additionally complete an in-depth study on one of the assigned topics by writing a short paper and by making a visual slideshow presentation in class. If they successfully complete all course requirements for graduate students, they will receive graduate-level credit for the course.

Attendance is mandatory, absence will impact final grade. For every two unexcused absences, your grade will be lowered by 1/3 of a letter. Two late arrivals to class are considered the equivalent of one unexcused absence. Students who do not stay for the duration of a class session should be marked absent. Students who miss more than 20% of a course owing to unexcused absences cannot be given a passing grade for the course.

Grades are based on attendance, proficiency, effort, and improvement.

Grades range from A+ to F. The SACI grading scale follows:

A+   Outstanding
A     Excellent
A-    Nearly Excellent
B+   Very Good
B     Good
B-    Nearly Good
C+   Above Satisfactory
C     Satisfactory
C-    Below Satisfactory
D     Unsatisfactory
F      Failure
