Policies / Classroom

FIRST DAY ATTENDANCE POLICY

Demand for Art classes is extremely high. Instructors assume that if you are not present for roll call on the first day of a studio art class you have decided not to remain enrolled. If you miss the first day without permission, it is your responsibility to drop the course. You may contact the instructor in advance and receive her/his permission to be absent on the first day.

OVER-LIMIT POLICY

Beginning the first day of the quarter (Period 3 registration), all registration in Studio Art (ART) courses must be approved by the instructor via a course add/over-limit slip.

To obtain an over-limit students must be present at roll call on the first day of class. Over-limit permission is granted at the instructor’s discretion and is not guaranteed.

To maintain the natural priority of the registration process, instructors will not sign and advisers will not accept over-limit permission slips until the first day of class.

PARTICIPATION POLICY

Absences from class prevent participation and may negatively affect grades.

If you miss class due to illness or emergency, notify your instructor, provide documentation, and set up a timeline to complete missed assignments and exams.

PLAGIARISM

Plagiarism is using the creations, ideas, words, inventions, or images of someone else in your own work without formal acknowledgement or permission. This applies to written papers and research as well as to art, design and architectural images.

Please check with your instructor if you have questions about what constitutes plagiarism.

Instances of plagiarism will be referred for disciplinary action to the Vice Provost for Student Relations.

INCOMPLETE GRADES

To request an “incomplete” a student must have:

  • Been in attendance and done satisfactory work through the eighth week of the quarter.
  • Satisfactory proof for the instructor that the work cannot be completed because of illness or other circumstances beyond their control.

CONCERNS ABOUT A COURSE, AN INDIVIDUAL, OR AN ISSUE CONCERNING THE SOA

Talk with the instructor in charge of the class as soon as possible. If this is not possible or productive, make an appointment with the Director of Academic Advising, 104 Art, 206-543-0646 or the Director of the School of Art, 102 Art, 206-685-2442.

EXAMINATION SCHEDULE

Students are required to take exams as scheduled by the University of Washington.

Exceptions may be granted in cases of documented emergencies but must be approved by the instructor. 

GRADE APPEAL PROCEDURE

If you think the grade you received is incorrect:

  • Contact the instructor to discuss your concern.
  • If not resolved, make an appointment with the Director of Academic Advising, 104 Art, 543-0646.

MATERIALS FEES

All art, design and art history classes have materials fees billed with tuition. Fee amounts and justifications are listed by class in the quarterly Time Schedule.  Additional fees may be charge in some classes.
