Instructor reserves right to change test/assignment dates - if that occurs, students will always be given at least two academic days notice 

Incomplete grades are only available under the following conditions: The student has done ALL of the work in the course and cannot take the final exam because of an emergency (verifiable illness, family death, car accident etc). If the issue arises prior to the date for withdrawal, then the student will take a W. If it occurs after the withdrawal date and all work in the course has been completed and a verifiable emergency has taken place, then an incomplete grade can be given. Please note, these are exceedingly rare. 

Cheating and plagiarism will be handled in accordance with DeAnza Policy (failing grade on the assignment or exam, and it cannot be dropped) and you will be reported to DeAnza Administration. 

Note to students with disabilities: If you have a disability-related need for reasonable academic accommodations or services in this course, provide (name of Instructor) with a Test Accommodation Verification Form (also known as a TAV form) from Disability Support Services (DSS) or the Educational Diagnostic Center (EDC). Students are expected to give five days notice of the need for accommodations. Students with disabilities can obtain a TAV form from their DSS counselor (864-8753 DSS main number) or EDC advisor (864-8839 EDC main number)
