Laboratory Course To complete the Chem 211 course, each student must also enroll and obtain a passing grade in a Chem 211 laboratory class If a student is repeating the course and has previously obtained a passing grade in the lab (at GMU or elsewhere) he/she can be exempt from the lab. To achieve this, the student must provide evidence of their prior lab grade and fill out a Lab waiver form and notify the lecture instructor of their lab exempt status.

Make Up Exam Policy An absence from an exam will be excused ONLY if adequate documentation is provided. (e.g., note from a physician) For an excused absence, the mid-term exam% for the course will be determined from the mean of the other two mid-terms ( i.e. the point values of the other two exams will be increased proportionately to cover the missed exam). Only one missed mid-term exam will be permitted (a second missed exam will result in a zero score for the exam) All students must take a Final Exam. Any change in the time or date of the final must be authorized by the Dean’s Office and by the instructor.
