When your in College.?

When your in College.? Topic: When your in College.?
June 20, 2019 / By Devan
Question: I have changed my classes and I have only missed one class day. Am I expected to know or have done the homework? (need to know for math class at 11:00) Sociology for example had a homework assignment due that day, but I didn't know. Could I turn it in next class? Certain classes have online syllabus's but I don't know it until I have that class, thanks for your help. I go to UNC-Charlotte by the way.

Professor's are usually understanding if you transfer into a class after the start date and miss one or two classes. The college I attend the professors would allow you to turn in homework the next class period in that particular situation. If you just didn't go to your first class though, and didn't bother checking w/the professor or another student in that class.. you might be out of luck for that homework assignment. As far as checking for an online sylabus goes.... unless this is your first semester as a freshman, and you've never known about that.... you're probably not gonna have much luck with the "I didn't know" excuse. The further you get along in college, the more you'll get the 'routine' of it. I have certain professors (or classes) that I know the sylabus and homework assignments will be posted online and not handed out in class, and certain ones that I know will NEVER post anything online... it's always handed out in class. At any rate, explain your dilema to your professors, hope for the best, and from now on, check online for any assignments that may be assigned before you go to class! Good Luck!

You left out the most important factor: do you speak French? Not that you're learning, not that you're fluent, but do you speak it as a native speaker? If not, you need to evaluate your goals more realistically. Translation jobs are exceptionally competitive, and if you did not grow up speaking French, you will not make enough money to survive. Assuming you did speak both French and English at home as a child, you can attend any college and major in anything. The most sought-after translators are the ones with stellar technical credentials, so I would recommend pursuing something like that rather than anthropology or whatever. A native French and English speaker with an engineering degree plus some coursework/background in technical writing will have no problems finding a job. The best language school in the United States is Middlebury. Most foreign language programs at US colleges/universities are very poor. However, you don't need to worry about that because if you are planning on taking French in college, you will not have the skill base to work as a translator/interpreter. Choose the most affordable school you can with a strong program in your chosen field.

I will recommend going to glendon college in toronto canada. They are excellent and the alumni have obtained jobs all around the world. Furthermore they have a linguistic or a translation degree which you can complete with a bilingual certificate in french, you can go for trilingual as well. It is a great school and i'm pretty sure it's probably cheaper than the US. I put the site down there for you. Good luck! (Plus being in the ib program can provide you with benefits to study in canada or even europe) http://www.glendon.yorku.ca/translation/

My experience is that each professor has a different policy. Your best bet would be to talk to the professor either before or after class to explain your situation. Good luck!

always have your hw prepared by the due date. in your case, you must contact the professor, usually before you miss class to see if it's ok to turn it in the next class period. or if you see it happening in the future, give it to a friend to turn in for you.... good luck

Wallace Originally Answered: Should community college students be held to the same academic standards as a four-year college student?
This should be an interesting essay to write. Have fun! Well, as much fun as writing an essay can be. :LOL: Don't plagiarize this, but if it helps you think through stuff, great. If the reasons that people say cc students should *not* be held to the same standards as four year college students are due to outside obligations, then the argument doesn't hold. Four year college students may well have those same obligations. Just because a student is at a four year college, that does not mean that they aren't a parent, or caring for elderly parents, or even working full time. Why should the cc student be given the break, but the four year college student not be? In addition, if, for example, a statistics class is going to be able to be transferred into a bachelors degree program (should the cc student chose to go on for a BA), that stats class had better have covered the same material as one at a four year college, or 1) the class won't transfer and 2) the student will have been done a disservice. If an employer or a grad program needs a student to know (same example) statistics, the student needs to know *stats*. They can't know "stats lite." They can't learn less stats just because they have outside obligations. I mean, imagine it: they teach nursing at community colleges. Do you seriously think those student nurses should learn "nursing lite" because they have families at home? You either learn anatomy, or you don't. Outside committments can't come into play re: what is taught. It's up to the student to balance their workload with their outside committments. Students at both types of schools - ccs and four year schools - need to be able to analyze their needs, and determine how many classes they can take per term, and of which types, and still be able to manage their outside committments. It's entirely reasonable to take one less class a term, so that a student can balance school and outside life. But a professor should not have to lighten a class because they think that their cc students can't handle it due to outside committments. In my opinion, that'd be condescending, and, perhaps worse, the student would not be receiving the education they'd paid for.
