Course Policies

Drop deadline: The last date to drop the course without receiving a grade is March 6.

Missed tests and labtests: If you miss a test or labtest due to reasons outside of your control, notify your course director immediately. Documentary evidence will be required to justify your absence (e.g., doctor's note in case of illness). The weight from the missed test or labtest will be transferred to the final exam; a “make-up” test will not be offered due to the high complexity of administering one. Failure to follow these procedures will result in a grade of zero for the missed test or labtest.

Attempting a test or labtest while sick: Do not attend or attempt to write a test or labtest if you are feeling sick enough that your performance would be affected. Instead, follow the procedure above for missed tests and labtests. If you attend and/or attempt to write the test or labtest, your grade for that test or labtest will stand.

Re-grading of a lab, written test, or labtest: If you believe there is an error in grading your lab, written test, or labtest, you must submit a request in writing (or by email) for re-grading, clearly explaining the error that you believe was made. The entire test or labtest will be subject to re-evaluation, and your grade may go up, go down, or stay the same. If you do not request re-grading within one week of receiving your graded work, your grade will be considered final.
