    Other Information: Late Assignments: All assignments are to be handed in at the beginning of class on the date they are due. Late assignments will be assessed at 5% per day penalty. Assignments not submitted within one week of the due date will not be accepted. Every effort should be made to have assignments in on the due date. Assignments will not be graded after the due date without a written agreement negotiated between student and instructor. If you know that you will be unable to hand in your assignment on time, you should discuss it with your instructor at least one week in advance of the due date. Extensions are only given in compelling medical or personal circumstances; documentation may be required.
    Papers: Papers should be type written. Students should make every effort to acquaint themselves with a computer in a writing program; watch for workshops offered by Student Services which will equip you with the tools you need for researching and writing on a computer. Papers should be completed on 8.5x11 inch white or recycled paper and should secure a single staple in the upper left hand corner. Papers should carry the date submitted rather than the date due. Students should keep a hard copy of their paper or a photocopy of their paper before handing in.
    Attendance: Attendance at lectures is critical because much information on the various topical areas, as well as, the assignments is disseminated in class. Lace of attendance will definitely be reflected in your overall grade. Students are expected to excuse their absences, in advance of the class, through other students or the instructor. Students with (3) three or more absences maybe required to withdraw from the class and/or face disciplinary action.
    Academic Honesty: As with any other public institution, the Nicola Valley Institution of Technology considers plagiarism a serious offence. Plagiarism is the act of presenting the ideas or works of another as ones own. This applies to all materials including essays, work term reports, laboratory reports, seminar presentations, computer programs, research projects and results, and statistical data. The use of such material either directly or indirectly without proper acknowledge (i.e. footnotes or endnotes) is contrary to the norms of academic behaviour and is subject to sever penalties, up to and including expulsion from the class or the institution. If in doubt about correct practices, ask your instructor.
    Appeal of Grade: Students wishing clarification regarding the grading of specific assignments or any student dissatisfied with an assigned grade should first discuss the matter with the instructor. If asked to do so the instructor will reassess the grade; the grade may or may not be changed. If, after the review, the student remains dissatisfied they may continue the appeal process as set out by the NVIT program calendar.
