Due Dates and Makeup Policy

The deadlines specified in the course syllabi in this class are suggested to help you pace yourself in the course.  Readings will be assigned and pop quizzes will be given to ensure that the readings have been completed.  The student is responsible for keeping up with deadlines and any changes that are made.  Please note that this schedule is tentative and will be updated as needs arise due to inclement weather, instructor illness, university obligations, etc.  In addition, the instructor reserves the right to make additional assignments, change assignments, change assignment deadlines or to modify the syllabus.  You will be held responsible for knowing about schedule changes whether you are in class or not. 

Any scheduling difficulties should be addressed the first week of class.  If an emergency arises, students should notify the instructor as soon as possible before the absence on an assignment, presentation, paper, or exam due date.  Notifications after the absence are not acceptable, barring extreme circumstances.  

Makeup Policy for Unexcused Absences
  • Students who have unexcused absences that coincide with due dates for assignments will not be allowed to turn in their assignments and will receive a grade of zero.
  • Students who have unexcused absences that coincide with a scheduled exam date will not be allowed to make up the exam and will receive a grade of zero.

Makeup Policy for Excused Absences
  • Students who have excused absences that coincide with due dates for assignments must turn in their assignment during the next scheduled class.  Students do have the option of turning the assignment in early.
  • Students who have excused absences that coincide with with a scheduled exam must make arrangements with the instructor to take the exam within one week of the scheduled exam.  Students who fail to take the exam within the time period will be given a zero for non-completion.
