A message to graduating seniors: You’ve put off BS 111 perhaps because you consider it will be your capstone and highlight course at MSU. Here are some answers to questions we hope you will not be asking the last week of class: 1. No, there is no extra credit by writing a term paper nor can you retake or have an exam waived because you believe the grade doesn’t show how well you actually can do. 2. No, we cannot pass you with a less than 47 % average even if this is: the last class you need, you have a plum of a job waiting, you’re out of money, your apartment lease is expiring or you’re getting married and moving away). 3. No, there is nothing to be done now. There were some things that could have been done earlier in the semester
