Due to limited space, you must attend the lab section in which you are registered. Failure to attend your own lab section without first clearing it with Ms. Walker will be counted as an unexcused absence. For exceptionally compelling reasons (e.g., hospitalization, a University-sponsored event) permission to attend another lab may be granted. This permission can only be granted by Ms. Walker or Dr. Brunell and must be obtained on an EMERGENCY ADMITTANCE TO LAB form in advance. In case of illness, you must notify either Ms. Walker or Dr. Brunell (not your lecturer or your lab instructor) prior to the meeting of your scheduled lab, obtain documentation regarding your illness from the UOP Health Center or your physician, and make arrangements to make up the lab as soon as you return to school. Please note that after Thursday afternoon of any week it will be impossible to make up
