teacher’s policy. That zero on the test made Matthew get a B at the end of the semester instead of an A.

He was eligible for a scholarship based on his family needs and school grades. He explained that a B in that class would make him ineligible for the scholarship and that he has to get an A.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
