ADDITIONAL STUDENT INFORMATION: Undergraduate study is time consuming. You can anticipate spending two or more hours of study, reading and research for every hour you spend in the classroom. To earn three hours of academic credit, classes must meet for a minimum of forty-five (45) classroom hours. Take these demands seriously as you plan your academic schedule. If for some reason you decide to drop this course, you are advised to discuss it first with your instructor. If you are having difficulties, please see your instructor before giving up or dropping the class. You will be dropped for non-attendance or excessive absences. Excessive absences will be considered, missing the equivalent of 2 weeks without instructor knowledge or prior approval. A grade of W will be assigned if you drop before the withdraw date that is in your student center in my.maricopa.edu. If you are still on the class roster at the end of the semester, you will be assigned a grade of A, B, C, D or F, based on your class average.
