**PLEASE NOTE:  

Starting Fall Semester 2011, any student enrolled in a section of an Independent Learning (IL), Web based course through the SIUC Office of Distance Education (SIU Online and Off Campus Programs) offered during Fall semester 2011 and afterward and taught by Dale O. Ritzel will have to complete the course during the semester enrolled (16 weeks or less) (8 weeks in the summer).  An extension to complete the course is up to the instructor and has to be requested at least 2 weeks before the end of the semester and is rarely given. Since grades have to be received by the University at the end of the regular semester, the student will receive a grade of INC (incomplete) if an extension is approved.   If an extension has been approved by the instructor, then you have one year from the end of the semester which you initially enrolled in HED 313s to complete the course.  If the work is not completed within one year, the University automatically turns the grade into an F.  I will only complete and process a grade change card when you finish ALL of the course assignments.  If the student does not complete the IL course in 16 weeks, the final grade given after completion of all course work will be dropped by one grade up to the one year time frame.  Do not ask me to sign a form allowing you to drop the course if the semester you were enrolled in the course has been completed.  In order to receive a grade in any course, you must complete ALL assignments.  The instructor reserves the right to have the student to redo any assignment which is not done well or is incomplete as to quality and specificity of the written directions for the assignment. Please note: All incompletes turn to an F upon Graduation, please plan accordingly and complete all course requirements at least a month prior to finals week.  So if you enroll in this course during the semester in which you plan on graduating, then you need to complete the course during that semester.
