Anybody with a 95 or higher before the final will be given an A without taking the final. All others will be given the option of dropping down to the next grade and not taking the final (e.g. if you have an 89.5 (an A), and are willing to take the B+ you do not have to take the final or if you have an 87 (a B+) and are willing to take the B you do not have to take the final). ALL people not taking the final MUST tell me personally of their plan, write, date, and sign a letter explaining what their grade is coming into the final, and what they understand their grade will be because they are not going to take the final. This must be done BEFORE the final. Anybody that misses the final without a good reason and documentation will be given a zero on the final. Graduate students:
