Text: Goldsby RA, Kindt TJ, Osborne BA. 2000. KUBY IMMUNOLOGY. 4th Edn. WH Freeman and Co, NY. You should plan on bringing the text to lecture as I rely heavily on text illustrations. You will also want to consult the textbook website: www.whfreeman.com/immunology.
Absences/late assignments. Alternative arrangements will be made to make-up missed exams with a valid excuse. Valid excuses include a documented illness, injury or family emergency, or participation in a University-sponsored event such as a theatre production or sports event. A conflict with travel plans for breaks is not a valid reason to assign a make-up. Please try to make arrangements in advance for anything except an emergency. Make-up exams will be different from the rest of the class and may consist entirely of essay and short answer questions. Unexcused lates for writing assignments will lose 5% per class session late.
Cheating/Plagiarism. Please don't. Assignments must represent your own
work. Cheating may result in a zero for the assignment, sharing one grade, or
failure of the course. College Policy stipulates "Cheating is the willful
misrepresentation of any part or all of another's work as one's own. Copying
another's answers, or giving or receiving unpermitted aid during classroom or
take-home examinations, assignments, papers, research reports and projects is
cheating. Plagiarism in all its forms is cheating." I caution you to use
special care with web-based assignments. See page 231 of the Plattsburgh State
Undergraduate Catalog 2000-2001 for further information.
