*Successful learning requires active involvement in learning activities:
reading, writing, problem solving, discussion, and lecture*.
The credit and evaluation policy is based on this observation.

Credit will be awarded for participating in and completing the entire body of work for the program at a passing level of performance. Credit decisions and evaluations will be based on

- attendance and active participation,
- on-time completion of readings and written assignments, and
- satisfactory performance on all exams and written work.

The quality of your work, the level of your understanding, and the extent of
your improvement will be reflected in your evaluation.
As a general policy credit will be awarded on an **all or none** basis
for each of the four threads of study,
although the faculty reserves the right to make exceptions to that rule.
**No incompletes will be given**.

Attendance is required at all program activities. *Failure to attend
three more of scheduled class meetings or failure to three or more assignments is sufficient grounds for loss of credit.*
Failure to submit or achieve satisfactory results on exams or failure to submit
satisfactory written assignments in a timely way is sufficient grounds for
loss of credit.
