*Please remember to include the semester and year at the top of the first page of your syllabi along with your name, contact information and office hours.





Students are responsible for registering for classes and for verifying their class schedules on e-campus.  The deadline for adding a Spring Semester class without instructor and academic unit head approval is Tuesday, January 21, 2014. After Tuesday, January 21, 2014, instructor and academic unit head approval is required to add a class for the Spring 2014 Semester. No student will be allowed to register for a Spring Semester class after Thursday, January 30, 2014.  No exceptions will be made to these deadlines.





Any student who feels he or she may need an accommodation based on the impact of a disability should contact me privately to discuss his or her specific needs.  Please contact the Office of Disability Services at (540) 568-6705, or visit them in the Wilson Learning Center, Room 107, to coordinate reasonable accommodations for students with documented disabilities.




At the instructor's discretion, any student registered for a class in the College of Visual and Performing Arts who does not attend the first two (2) scheduled meetings of the class (or does not attend the first scheduled meeting of a class that meets once a week) may be administratively dropped from the class. Students dropped for non-attendance will be notified via e-mail by the Dean of the College.

Students who fail to attend the first two meetings of a class for which they are registered but who do not receive an e-mail notification have not been administratively dropped by their instructor. Unless those students drop the course on their own, they will receive a grade at the end of the semester.

All students are responsible for verifying the accuracy of their schedules and changes made in their schedule via e-mail and through the web.
