If interested in extra credit, take the “Your Legal IQ” found in the module for week #15. All five tests must first be taken before you complete the “Your Legal IQ”. You must submit the answers to me via my e-mail address which is: firstname.lastname@example.org
I will grade it and if your Legal IQ score is greater than your lower test score, the IQ score will replace your lowest test score when I complete the final course grade.
Work must be completed by end of the week for which it is scheduled. If it is turned in later in the next week, there may be a deduction in your grade for that assignment. SEE TIMELINE FOR DUE DATES AND WORK DUE.
For example, Week #2 starts Monday, September 12th so the Week #1 material must be completed by that date. Work for Week #1 completed on Sunday, September 11th is okay and not late. It is better for you to submit an assignment late than not to submit it at all.
PLEASE NOTE - FINAL DATE TO COMPLETE AND SUBMIT ALL TESTS AND ASSIGNMENTS IS SATURDAY, DECEMBER 17TH . WORK WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED ON SUNDAY, DECEMBER 18TH OR THEREAFTER.
Return of Title IV Funds. If a student leaves the college prior to completing 60% of a term, the Office of Financial Aid recalculates eligibility for Title IV funds. If a student earned less aid than was disbursed, the college would be required to return a portion of the funds. Keep in mind that when Title IV funds are returned, the student borrower may owe a debt balance to the college.
ACADEMIC INTEGRITY – PLEASE NOTE ALL ASSIGNMENTS AND TESTS TAKEN MUST NOT BE DONE WITH OTHER STUDENTS NOR COPIED FROM ANY OTHER SOURCE. THE WORK DONE MUST THE PRODUCT OF EACH STUDENT WORKING ALONE. ANY VIOLATION OF THIS CODE OF CONDUCT WILL RESULT IN A SERIOUS ACADEMIC PENALTY AND LOSS OF PASSING GRADE AND CREDIT FOR COURSE.
