If this is the student’s first class in the series then the student may select any past or active project subject or create one that is relevant to them. We have 3 case studies to choice from if the student lacks the experience to develop a topic or if necessary the student may elaborate on their TQM 240 project. Please see me on your options. The first project will be a risk management plan and the second will be a quality management plan.

QUIZZES: A group quiz will act as a review of the salient content and is part of your class participation.

STUDY GROUPS: Forming a study group of 2-3 people is highly recommended for solving, discussing, or reviewing homework.

COURSE WITHDRAWAL: See MCC catalog for the last day for student initiated withdrawals. It is your responsibility to pursue a course of action in order to drop the course if necessary. Students will be charged tuition and fees when dropped from classes after the 100% refund period (whether through the purge process for non-payment or instructor removal for failure to attend).
