Strict adherence to UST’s policy on academic integrity is expected as stipulated in the Student Handbook. A student caught cheating in a quiz or in preliminary examination will be given a score of zero for that quiz or preliminary examination. Outright failure will be given to a student caught cheating in the final examinations.

Three quizzes and one major departmental examination will be given per grading period. No make-up quiz will be given. If a student missed a quiz the first time, his score for that quiz will be his lowest quiz for the entire semester. A grade of zero will be given for succeeding missed quiz/quizzes Professionalism is expected of the students in both academic and non-academic matters. Class attendance should be both regular and punctual. A grade of Failure due to Absences (FA) will be given to students who incurred 16 hours of absences or more. Three counts of tardiness of at least 15 minutes is equivalent to one hour absence.

The students should actively participate in classroom discussions. Deadlines for the submission of assignments and projects must be strictly followed. The students should practice collaborative work in group assignments. Consultation with the Professor is strongly encouraged and should be done during his/her consultation time. Passing score is 60%. No remedial examination will be given. Grading System: Grading System: (for 2 grading periods) ? Class standing o Quizzes ?
