Late Work Policy
Regardless of reason, all late work will be reduced in grade by the following scale. Work is considered late when it is not completed at the time stated in the curriculum guide. Thus, if work is to be submitted prior to the start of a class session, the work is considered one day late when that class session begins.
- One day late: 10% reduction
- Two days late: 20% reduction
- Three days late: 30% reduction
- More than three days late: No points given
Students who believe a grade reduction has occurred due to a legitimate emergency (e.g., accident, hospitalization, death in family) may appeal their final grade after the final grade has been submitted by the instructor. Written justification such as a letter from a doctor must be submitted with the Request for Grade Change paperwork.
Students are to follow the rules and guidelines of the APA manual, for all written assignments, which they receive as part of their educational resources. It is always a wise practice to make copies or save all assignments, papers, etc. to your computer hard drive or a flash drive before submitting your paper through eLearn.
Standards for Oral and Written Work
All work-oral and written-is to be at university level. Work will be evaluated according to the Professional Studies' written and oral presentation rubrics.
Cell phones are to be turned off or placed on vibration mode while you are in class; use of laptops, iPads or any other devices is to the instructor's discretion.
Communication with Instructors
Students are expected to communicate with instructors if they have questions or concerns. The very best way to communicate is through the instructor's Judson University email account. Students can also email their instructors through their eLearn course site. Instructors may also provide telephone numbers or other email addresses as they wish. Once a course has started, an instructor is expected to respond to students' questions and concerns within 24 hours.
The final assignment in all courses is to complete the online course evaluation. This must be completed before the instructor can assign a final grade.
