Important Notes

 Start the assignment well in advance of the due date. Last minute problems on your end will not

be an excuse for missing a deadline

 Do not use anyone else’s work. After we receive all assignments, we will run them through an

automated process to check for plagiarism. Any violations or any plagiarism will result in a zero

on this assignment and possible further disciplinary action by the College. It is better to miss

turning in an assignment (or to turn in an incomplete assignment) and receive a lower grade

than to risk going through a Student Conduct review process

 Using a Mac version of Microsoft Office is entirely at your own risk. If the Mac version does not

allow you to perform certain steps outlined in this document, you will lose points for those steps
