Academic Honesty – The class will follow Iowa State University’s policy on academic dishonesty. Anyone suspected of academic dishonesty will be reported to the Dean of Students Office. http://www.dso.iastate.edu/ja/academic/misconduct.html

(4)

It is expected that all work you submit will be original and solely the result of your own efforts. Submitting work from a previous semester is not allowed. Resubmission of work will result in a 0 for the project.

“The academic work of all students must comply with all University policies on academic honesty. Examples of academic misconduct are:

 Attempting to use unauthorized information in the taking of an exam;

 Submitting as one’s own work, themes, reports, drawings, laboratory notes, computer programs or other products prepared by another person;

 Knowingly assisting another student in obtaining or using unauthorized materials; or  Plagiarism.” (Student Conduct Code, Section 4.2.1, p. 27)

All instances of cheating will be handled individually and disciplinary actions to be administered may include any or all of the following: a grade of “0” on the assignment or exam, automatic failure in the course.

Accommodation of Special Needs - Iowa State University complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act and Sect 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. If you have a disability and anticipate needing accommodations in this course, please contact the instructor to set up a meeting within the first two weeks of the semester or as soon as you become aware of your need. Before meeting with the instructor, you will need to obtain a SAAR form with recommendations for accommodations from the Disability Resources Office http://www.dso.iastate.edu/dr/ , located in Room 1076 on the main floor of the Student Services Building. Their telephone number is 515.294.7220 or email disabilityresources@iastate.edu. Retroactive requests for

and http://policy.iastate.edu/policy/drugs )

Assignments – Late assignments will not be accepted. If you encounter extenuating circumstances please contact me within 6 hours of the projects due time.

Classroom Courtesy – Respect and care for the classroom and studio spaces are

expected of each student. You are to leave the studio in better condition than you found it, so that all students have a positive experience using our studio and classroom spaces. You are expected to have the necessary materials and supplies for each meeting. Projects must be worked on in class, but some work will also need to be completed outside of class. Projects not worked on in class will not be accepted. You are encouraged to watch progress on projects of other class members and to share learning experience with others.

Course Fees - A course fee of $95 is assigned to this class. A general fee of $45 is assessed to all students in the class that covers lab equipment maintenance and repairs, pattern paper, thread, etc. Note- I will double check on this course fee and how it may be used.

Students are responsible for purchasing all digitally printed fabric (ranging from $7 and up/yd.), along with notions, interlining, and other materials for constructing garments which the lab doesn’t provide. The cost of digitally printed fabric includes the 40% educational discount received by DATS to purchase it, along with a small upcharge to cover shipping inks, maintenance, supplies for the textile printer & steamer.

Due Dates - All assignments/projects must meet class deadlines as established by the instructor. Technology problems are not acceptable

excuses. All assignments are expected on the due date and time. NO late assignments will be accepted. Project assignments are to be turned in completely finished, including hems, closures, and any written evaluations required. Failure to do so will result in loss of points. The due dates for all assignments are included in the syllabus, but may be subject to change. You will be informed of any changes in class or via e-mail. You are preparing to work in a professional

environment where respecting due dates can make a crucial difference in your career. Take this seriously.

Penalties start accruing immediately after the project/assignment deadline. Projects not submitted in class need to be turned into 31 MacKay for a date stamp during normal office hours (8am to 5pm). Unusual circumstances must be discussed with faculty before the project/assignment is due.
