Interacting With Instructors

 Be Responsible

As a student in any course, it is your responsibility to adhere to all rules and faculty expectations. Always make sure that you carefully read and understand the course syllabus. If you have questions, then ask the instructor to clarify them.

  It will not impress your instructor if you ask about an extension or exemption from some course assignment on grounds that are clearly not allowed in the syllabus. Nor will it impress the instructor if you claim that you can't get the work done for his/her course because of other courses. You will typically know of all major assignments in your courses very early in the semester, so you must be responsible enough to plan ahead and avoid unnecessary conflicts. Remember, it is the instructor's responsibility to teach you the course material, not to plan your academic and social calendar to accommodate that learning.
