Department Policies

Plagiarism: Any assignment that is plagiarized, in whole or in part, will receive a mark of zero. Names of all offenders will be kept on a list in the department office for the reference of other teachers.
Non-Negotiable Due Dates: Many assignments in all courses will have non-negotiable due dates. This means that assignments will not be accepted late unless they are accompanied by a doctor's note.
Book Return: It is a student's responsibility to return all textbooks and other materials in reasonable condition. Failure to do so will result in the student compensating the school for the loss or damage.
