IVCC withdrawal policy: Last day to withdraw is November 8th, 2012

Effective Summer 2011, students will have the ability to initiate a withdrawal from classes. By completing the form in the Records Office or through the form located within WebAdvisor, the student is authorizing IVCC to remove him/her from the course. Entering the student ID number serves as the student’s electronic signature. IVCC has the right to rescind a withdrawal in cases of academic dishonesty or at the instructor’s discretion.

Students should be aware of the impact of a withdrawal on full-time status for insurance purposes and for financial aid. It is highly recommended that students meet with their instructor or with a counselor before withdrawing from a class to discuss if a withdrawal is the best course of action for that particular student.

More detailed information is available at www.ivcc.edu/admissions and selecting the menu item for Withdrawals on the left side of the page.

Grade components:

- 5 Hour exams (100 points each).
- Final Exam – cumulative based on material covered throughout semester (100 points)
- MYMATHLAB homework (100 points)
- Group exercises may be collected and graded. They may include recently covered material. (points tba)
- You are expected to read the text to supplement information provided during my lectures. On average, you should spend 2 hours studying outside of class for each hour you are in class.

MYMATHLAB details:

- Each section we cover has a required MYMATHLAB homework
assignment. You can try each problem as many times as you wish
until you get it correct. This means if you spend enough time, you can
get 100% of the problems correct. The total points awarded for
MYMATHLAB homework will be based on your overall percentage correct on all assignments at the end of the semester. An overall percentage of
100% will get a student all 100 points possible for the MYMATHLAB component
of this course.
