Policies

Students are allowed one excused absence. After that, 5 points will be deducted from the final grade for each class missed. Late work is an automatic zero. If you absolutely cannot make it to a due date/critique, you must notify the professor as soon as possible. Projects are weighted more heavily than exercises, but all components are important. Students will compile a portfolio of work at the culmination of the class.
