3. Attendance Requirements and Honor Code: Students are expected to attend all lectures and laboratory sessions. If it is necessary to be absent at any of these sessions the student should make pre-arrangements with the instructor. PARTICULARLY if a laboratory session is missed, the student must check with the instructor before running any of the laboratory equipment. This is for the student's personal safety, as well as protecting the laboratory equipment from possible damage.

Students are expected to observe the BYU-Idaho honor code. This includes: conduct, dress and grooming standards, and observing LDS principles.

Caveat: The syllabus and class assignment sheet represent a tentative outling and schedule for the class. The instructor reserves the right to make changes, deletions, corrections, or additions during the course. Students will be given advance notice of any changes. It is the responsibility of the student to attend class and be aware of these changes.

Students with Special Needs: In compliance with the applicable disability laws, qualified students with a disability may be entitled to "reasonable accommodation." It is the student's responsibility to disclose to the teacher any special need he/she may have before the end of the first week of class.
