CCNY’s Statement on Community Standards
Students are expected to attend every class session of this course and to be on time. If you miss three classes, your final grade will be dropped by one-half of one letter (a 90 to an 85, for example). If you miss four classes, your final grade will be dropped one full letter. If you miss five classes, you will not be able to pass the course. Consistent late arrivals and early departures will have a negative impact on your grade. I will notify you by email if course absences (for full or partial classes) are having an impact on your grade. If you have special circumstances, please don’t hesitate to let me know! I’m happy to work with you to help you complete this course.
Additional Course Policies
- While beverages and small snacks are allowed, please be sure to clean up after yourself!
- Tablets and computers are welcomed in the classroom so long as you’re still taking notes and participating when necessary. Phone usage isn’t prohibited, however, moderation is expected.
Student Support Services Program, NAC 6/148
SSSP invites new students, especially incoming freshmen and transfers at the start of fall, to join us up to our 500-student cap. SSSP students should be either first-generation college students OR have a family income below a certain threshold. SEEK students are not eligible to join as SSSP’s services in many ways mirror SEEK’s. To apply, complete the application at https://www.ccny.cuny.edu/sssp/sssp_application. Accepted students have full access to SSSP’s services, which include academic advising, personal counseling, and tutoring in the Academic Resource Center in Marshak 1104. Tutoring supports all disciplines, and offers SSSP students the only online, 24/7 writing review service currently offered at City. Students requesting in-person writing tutoring are assigned to the same tutor for a series of meetings which can be weekly or customized to the students’ schedule of due dates.
