Sociology Course Policies
Sociology courses may have individual policies regarding class attendance. Students should carefully review syllabi for attendance policies related to specific courses. The department course policies include standards for:
Students are responsible for making sure, at the beginning of the quarter, that they can attend exams as scheduled. Students are expected to arrive on time for all examinations.
Students may request an incomplete after the drop deadline (drop deadlines are available on the Academic Calendar). Incompletes are granted only when there is a serious and unavoidable situation that the student cannot remedy without an incomplete.
Course work (papers, exams, assignments, or other work) submitted after the stated deadline will not receive full course credit. Students should refer to specific instructor policies for how much late work is penalized.
Errors in grading must be adjudicated by the instructor. If you believe that your work has been incorrectly graded (e.g. points were added up incorrectly), you must contact the instructor in writing and clearly state the error you believe has occurred. The instructor of the course will always determine the final grade. Grade change requests after the end of the term are further limited by the University’s policies (refer to the Stanford Bulletin or the Registrar’s webpage).
The Honor Code is the University's statement on academic integrity. All students enrolled in Sociology courses are expected to adhere to the honor code. Information about the Honor Code and the Fundamental Standard are available on the Judicial Affairs webpage.
Students with documented disabilities (physical, psychological, or learning disabilities that may necessitate an academic accommodation or the use of auxiliary aids and services in a class) must initiate requests for accommodations with the Office of Accessible Education (OAE), not with the instructor.
