IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO READ EACH CHAPTER PRIOR TO COMPLETING THE WEEKLY SESSION.
Students are expected to complete each weekly session timely, by the dates and times indicated. If the assigned weekly session is not submitted on time, you will receive a ZERO (0) grade for that week's work. You will also not be able to progress to the next session. Missing a weekly session is the equivalent of missing three one hour classes. If you miss two sessions, you MAY be dropped from the course. It is essential that all weekly session requirements be completed and submitted when indicated each week. THERE ARE NO EXCUSES. You should be mindful that you may access your weekly session any time, day or night, to complete the required assignments. There is no scheduled time to begin the session assignments once they are made available; however, assignments must be completed by the due date and time. This is an INET course. You need only to access a computer and submit the required assignment each week when it is due.
