What you will do and learn in my courses
This is actually about statements you may need as you navigate various parts of the university system
Attendance policy: If you need to miss class and want the university to notify all your professors, use this link. In any case, notifying me (by email) is wise, whatever else you choose to do. www.wou.edu/advising/absence This form allows the Student Success and Advising office to relay the information regarding your absence to faculty members in a timely manner. The notification sent to your faculty will serve as a courtesy notice and does not excuse your absence. It will still be your responsibility to communicate with your faculty members to discuss any work missed during your absence. Information submitted through the Student Absence Notification System must be truthful in accordance with the Student Code of Responsibility.
ACADEMIC INTEGRITY/HONESTY (plagiarism) Students must adhere to WOU’s Code of Student Responsibility. Academic dishonesty will not be tolerated in this course. I REPORT ALL INSTANCES OF SUSPECTED DISHONESTY. Any student who violates the policy will receive 0 points on the assignment, and MAY also be given a failing grade for the course. At a minimum, academic dishonesty will lead to your final grade being dropped AT LEAST 2 levels. The case will also be turned over to the Student Judicial Committee for further action. Examples of inappropriate behavior includes doing assigned work for another student, sharing answers on work assigned to be done individually, sharing or copying answers during an exam or portraying another person’s writing as your own. If you have questions about what might be considered inappropriate, please ask me! (source: wou Code of Student Responsibility -- 574-031-0030)
INCOMPLETE GRADES (I) grades are not intended as a way to avoid an F grade. The student must be passing the class for an incomplete to be considered. To be eligible for an incomplete you must be passing the class but lack one essential requirement, such as missing one; generally if the assignment is worth more than 20% an incomplete is not appropriate. In addition, the reason for the incomplete must be serious and compelling--extended illness, a (certified) death in the family, that level of 'serious.' Finally, See me for more details if you need to consider this option.
Office of Disability Services: WOU values diversity and inclusion; we are committed to fostering full participation for all students. Please notify your instructor if there are aspects of the instruction or design resulting in barriers to your participation.
Disability-related accommodations are determined through the Office of Disability Services (ODS). If you, as a student, believe you may be eligible for disability related accommodations please contact ODS, they would be happy to work with you. ODS notifies students and faculty members of approved academic accommodations and coordinates implementation of accommodations.

Information for Veterans Military Service Personnel (active duty, guard, or reserve Western Oregon University recognizes that those who are actively serving in the Reserves or National Guard of the United States are required by their military contract to attend mandatory training. If you will be absent due to military orders, I strongly encourage you to communicate that with me as soon as possible so we may discuss alternative arrangements.
