PERFORMANCE STANDARDS

 

In addition to high academic performance, I expect everyone to be honest and display a high level of integrity. I won’t tolerate any form of dishonesty, cheating, fabrication, the facilitation of academic dishonesty or plagiarism, to include copying someone else information and turning in as your own work. Refer to the MCC Student Handbook for related policies and due process procedures.


GRADING STANDARD/COMPOSITION*

 

80% of your grade is based on your test scores and 20% on a Diversity and/or E-Commerce - related project. We will decide during the first month what mutually beneficial projects you want and can do.
