There is only one break in classes during the Fall 16 term at Jackson College, Thanksgiving Break. Thanksgiving Break is from November 23-27, 2016. We do have classes on Monday and Tuesday of that week and missing due to your personal travel plans is not an excuse for missed work or make-up exams.
As the Fall 2016 term approaches here at Jackson College, I will be turning over the site content for the next term. If you are looking for materials from the W16 term, please be sure to download it in the next couple of days.
All previous syllabuses from the last few years are archived in the JetNet Syllabus archive.
The final grades for courses are posted to EServices. Thank you for a wonderful term and I wish you all the best of luck in the future.
Prior to the Finals I am putting together gradesheets. All drop grades have been accounted for and everything but the Final accounted for. The new sheets have the following new columns.
- Current Grade: Letter Grade without accounting for a Final
- No Final: Percentage in the course if you do not take the final (i.e. 0/100 on Final)
- To Keep: The percentage grade you need on the final to keep your “Current” letter grade.
- To Go Up: The percentage grade you need on the final to go up to the next letter grade. (if blank it is mathematically impossible to go up).
Tomorrow, April 29th, is the last day to withdraw from my classes with a “W.” After tomorrow you will receive the grade you have earned when they are posted after term.
