It is plagiarism to present another’s ideas or words as your own. In
a foreign language classroom, this includes computer-based translations. If you have questions when preparing a composition or other graded assignment, please ask your instructor. Do not have someone else correct your writing for you before turning it in for a grade. Plagiarism is a serious academic offense, and can result in a failing grade or worse. http://www.uvm.edu/cses/?Page=ah.html&SM=ahmenu.html (Students can be reminded here about automatic translators.)
Student learning accommodations:
In keeping with University policy, any student with a documented disability interested in utilizing accommodations should contact ACCESS, the office of Disability Services on campus
3. Religious Holidays:
Students have the right to practice the religion of their choice. If you need to miss class to observe a religious holiday, please submit the dates of your absence to your instructor in writing by the end of the second full week of classes.
You will be permitted to make up work within a mutually agreed-upon time.
Classroom environment expectations:
Learning a foreign language is an inherently social and interactive process. It is a difficult and, oftentimes, intimidating task; however the progress you can make in a relatively short time can be amazing. In order to excel in this French classroom, you should make every effort to communicate with your partner and classmates in Spanish and be prepared for the instructor to call on you at any time. Electronic devices may be used for note-taking or dictionary tools, but your attention should always be clearly focused on the instructor or task at hand. Please respect your fellow classmates and avoid disrupting both your own and their learning by web-surfing, texting, or holding English conversations. Such disruptions will be noted and reflected in your weekly participation grades.
5. Attendance policy: University of Vermont Attendance Policy
Students are expected to attend all regularly scheduled classes. It is the responsibility of the student to inform the instructor regarding the reason for absence or tardiness from class, and to discuss this with the instructor in advance whenever possible. The instructor has the right to require documentation* in support of the student's request for an absence from class. If an out-of-class exam is scheduled which conflicts with a regularly scheduled class, the regularly scheduled class has priority. The instructor has the right to disenroll any student from a course if that student (1) does not meet the prerequisites of the course, or (2) fails to attend a scheduled course by the third instructional day of a semester or the second scheduled class session of a course, whichever comes later, unless the student has notified the instructor and has been excused.
