Such students will list the work they have missed, by course, into the system and an email request for relief will automatically be sent to the course instructor or designate. It will continue to be the responsibility of the student to follow up with his/her instructor to discuss the nature of the relief. If you have missed work, it is your responsibility to speak with Thelma Leech LSB 118, Ext 24629, leecht@mcmaster.ca as soon as possible. IMPORTANT NOTE – Students MUST complete a minimum of 75% of the course work (lab + quizzes) to obtain credit for Biology 2A03, even if they have approved notes from the Associate Dean’s office. 1 of 5
