Although not a strict requirement, background in database and web programming is helpful.|
|Textbook||:||None. You will be required to set up and maintain for the semester a server with Amazon Web Services. This will require a credit/debit card to set up. expenses. You will also be required to reserve a domain name. I expect expenses for the entire semester to be less than $20.|
Lab day work (both pre-lab and labday steps) should be completed by noon on Wednesday of each week. Each lab day is designated as 10 points and is graded according to its completeness and correctness.
Late lab day assignments will receive a 30% point penalty and must be completed within a week or the original due date. Assignments that miss the one week deadline will receive a grade of 0 (unless there are extenuating circumstances).
An assignment is considered late if it is not submitted at the specified time on the day it is due. Late assignments are assessed a 30% penalty for the first week. Assignments submitted after the first late week receive a grade of 0.
In addition, all full or part-time students are eligible to receive free, confidential, and voluntary counseling services at HSU. Services include consultation, evaluation, counseling, and crisis support services for students facing issues impacting their overall well-being. To obtain any of these services, students may call The Office of Counseling Services at (325) 671-2272, email email@example.com, or begin the intake process by completing our online forms at:https://www.hsutx.edu/intake.
Cases of suspected academic dishonesty will be handled in accordance with university policies outlined in Undergraduate Catalog and in the Student Handbook. The current catalog prescribes that “no student who has violated the Academic Integrity Policy will be allowed to graduate from Hardin-Simmons University with honors.” Penalties will be assigned at the discretion of the instructor and typically range from failure on the assignment to failure of the course. A general rule-of-thumb is that a first offense (if not too major) will result in a zero on the assignment and a second offense will result in an F for the course. The current catalog states that an F earned in this way cannot be replaced by retaking the course.
Accordingly, absence from more than 25 percent of class meetings and/or laboratory sessions scheduled for a course (including absences because of athletic participation) is regarded as excessive, and a grade of F may be assigned as deemed appropriate by the professor.
