Sign up for EDMS classes early: It is students' responsibility to sign up for EDMS courses early.  If students wait too long, then a course might fill up.  While the department has historically over-subscribed EDMS students so they may get into those courses, doing so once a course is filled winds up making the class larger than the course limit.  So please be respectful of your instructors and of the department by signing up for all courses once the registration system opens for a given semester.

Academic Accommodations: In compliance with and in the spirit of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), we want to work with you if you have a documented disability that is relevant to your work in our courses. If you need academic accommodation by virtue of a documented disability, please contact the course instructor as soon as possible to discuss your needs. Students with documented needs for an accommodation must meet the same achievement standards required of all other students, although the exact way in which achievement is demonstrated may be altered. All requests for academic accommodations should be made as early as possible in the semester. Further information concerning accommodations for disabilities can be at the University of Maryland's Counseling Center website.

Academic Integrity: The University of Maryland, College Park has a nationally recognized Code of Academic Integrity, administered by the Student Honor Council. This Code sets standards for academic integrity at Maryland for all undergraduate and graduate students. As a student you are responsible for upholding these standards for this course. It is very important for you to be aware of the consequences of cheating, fabrication, facilitation, and plagiarism. For more information on the Code of Academic Integrity or the Student Honor Council, please visit SHC. To further exhibit your commitment to academic integrity, remember to sign the Honor Pledge on all examinations and assignments: "I pledge on my honor that I have not given or received any unauthorized assistance on this examination (assignment)."

Make-Up Examinations: Statement of University policy from Chapter 4 of the Undergraduate Catalog: "An instructor is not under obligation to offer a substitute assignment or to give a student a make-up assessment unless the failure to perform was due to an excused absence, that is, due to illness (of the student or a dependent), religious observance (where the nature of the observance prevents the student from being present during the class period), participation in university activities at the request of university authorities, or compelling circumstances beyond the student's control. Students claiming excused absence must apply in writing and furnish documentary support for their assertion that absence resulted from one of these causes."

Religious Observances: It is the policy of UMCP that students not be penalized in any way for participation in religious observances. Students shall be allowed, whenever practicable, to make up academic assignments that are missed due to such absences. It is the student's responsibility to contact the instructor for each course in which work is missed, and make arrangements for make-up work or examinations.
1. Procedure The student is responsible for providing written notification to the professor within the first two weeks of the semester. The notification must identify the religious holiday(s)and the date(s). The student shall hand the written notification to the instructor personally to avoid problems with collecting mail from mailboxes or e-mail. The process should be confidential.
2. Examinations and Assignments The make-up examination or substitute assignment must be at a time and place mutually agreeable to the instructor and student, cover only the material for which the student was originally responsible, and be at a comparable level of difficulty with the original examination. In the event that a group of students requires the same make-up examination or substitute assignment, one time and place may be scheduled. The make-up assessment or substitute assignment must not interfere with the student's regularly scheduled classes or in-class final examination.
3. Classwork Students are responsible for information and material missed on the day(s) of absence. Students absent for religious observance may request any materials given out during the absence. Students shall be given a reasonable time to make up class assignments.
