12.1. Other Course Policies

a. Attendance
According to CHED policy, total number of absences by the students should not be more than
20% of the total number of meetings or 12 hrs for this course. Student incurring more than 12
hours of unexcused absences automatically gets a failing grade regardless of class standing.

b. Homework, Written Reports, Reaction Papers


Homework and other assigned coursework are due at the beginning of the class period of the
specified due date. Late assignments are worth 50% credit after due date.

c. Language of Instruction
Lectures, discussion, and documentation will be in English. Written and spoken work may
receive a lower mark if it is, in the opinion of the instructor, deficient in English.

d. Honor, Dress and Grooming Codes


All of us have been instructed on the Dress and Grooming Codes of the Institute. We have all
committed to obey and sustain these codes. It will be expected in this class that each of us will
honor the commitments that we have made.

For this course the Honor Code is that there will be no plagiarizing on written work and no
cheating on exams. Proper citation must be given to authors whose works were used in the
process of developing instructional materials and learning in this course. If a student is caught
cheating on an exam, he or she will be given zero mark for the exam. If a student is caught
cheating twice, the student will be referred to the Prefect of Student Affairs and be given a failing
grade.

e. Consultation Schedule
Consultation schedules with the Professor are posted outside the ChE-Chm Faculty room and in
the Schools web-page ( http://che-chm.mapua.edu.ph ). It is recommended that the student
first set an appointment to confirm the instructors availability
