Rules of the Road
No late papers or other written work will be accepted. You have ample time to plan your schedule since all due dates are listed on this syllabus.
No make-up mid-term exams except for a verifiable, serious, and documented reason.
The only acceptable reason for rescheduling of the final is that you have three exams on one day. Such rescheduling must be done in advance through the appropriate Dean's Office. You must make arrangements yourself to make up the exam with me before the scheduled exam is given. The make-up exam will take the form of a six-page, take-home essay on two questions due on a date set me at the time you meet with me. I expect that you will hand in three double-spaced, typed pages on each question.
If you miss the final examination, you will receive an AB grade. You must then make an appointment to see me. I will decide whether or not to give you the opportunity to take a make-up exam on the basis of your record in the course and whether you have a verifiable, documented reason serious enough to warrant the inconvenience to me. The make-up exam will take the form of a six-page, take-home essay on two questions due on a date set by me at the time you meet with me. I expect that you will hand in three double-spaced, typed pages on each question.
