  1. Students MUST attend all classes. Instructor will not accept any student after the first day of class. Since most concepts learnt in this course are new and unfamiliar, students are expected to attend the first day of class to avoid falling behind. Due the intensive nature of this course it is recommended that students have completed at least English 12 or COMM 1103 to be successful. Your instructor may choose to structure this course using the entire scheduled time for synchronous delivery, or use a mix of synchronous and asynchronous, or choose primarily an asynchronous delivery structure where you are not required to be in attendance at the scheduled time every week. Regardless of the structure, you are required to be available at all scheduled course days and times, at the instructor’s discretion, for the entire duration of the course. Your instructor will advise you in the first week of class about the structure of your course.
