Language Course Outlines
Overview of German Language Courses

German language students are expected to attend and complete class work from day one of class. Students MUST BE ATTENDANCE and have completed all course work for weeks one and two at very latestby Wed. Sept. 14 / Thurs. Sept. 15 for 2-day classes or Fri. Sept. 16 for 3-day classes.
There will be NO NEW ADMITS to German language classes in Week 3 of the Semester!

Class attendance is a formal component of all German language courses. Frequent or extended absences impede development of oral/aural skills and directly influence in-class performance. Any student who misses class (for any reason) should inform the instructor in advance, make up, and hand in all work. Late homework assignments will be corrected to provide feedback, but count as 0. Missed deadlines for other assignments and projects also count as 0. Regular attendance is absolutely necessary in language classes. More than one week of absence automatically lowers the grade for classwork. Excused absences require a note from the student's class dean. If you miss a class, it is your responsibility to find out what material was covered during your absence and to keep up with the current assignments and classroom materials.
