Thrive In Your Courses What to expect prior to class start date - You will receive an email from your instructor(s) one week prior to the beginning of the semester outlining how to access the course and other important information. Instructors' expectations - Your instructor expects you to log into the class on the start date and at least three times a week during the semester. Participate on a regular basis, turn assignments in on-


time, and join the community of learners with enthusiasm. Problem Solving with Instructors - If you are having difficulty or can't participate for a period of time due to unexpected or extenuating circumstances, make sure that you contact your instructor immediately to arrange a workable plan. Do not just disappear! Grades - Your instructor will post your grades throughout your course on Moodle and your final grade will be posted on BroncoWeb.

Practice Professionalism - http://registrar.boisestate.edu/catalogs/online/general-policies.shtml Boise State University challenges its students to reach their highest levels of performance, encourages them to excel in academics and sports, and invites them to participate in the many cultural and social activities available at the university.

Therefore, BSU has published these catalogs and the Boise State University Student Handbook to acquaint you with your rights and responsibilities as a student. http://www.boisestate.edu/vpsa/documents/StudentHandbook.pdf
