This adult environment includes diverse and potentially irreconcilable viewpoints expressed through language, course readings and material both in and out of the classroom. Instructors are not required to substitute assignments if the student chooses not to complete them. 7. Instructors are not notified who is a Running Start student. Students are not expected to share this information unless they so desire.
