Attendance Regular attendance in both lecture and lab is expected. Missing more than 2 lab periods and associated objectives will withdraw you from the course . You are responsible for all course material (Lecture/Lab). Generally, it is not possible to make up a missed lab. If you miss a lab, you are responsible for reading the lab manual thoroughly, obtaining lab data from your lab partner and completing the analysis/question section on your own. This does not mean copying another student's lab. Only data may be shared. Questions are to be answered on your own. Read the section in your MC handbook concerning Academic Dishonesty for further information. Make-up Policy: Make-up of lecture exams or lab exams is NOT allowed without medical or legal documentation. In order to qualify, you must contact the instructor before the missed test. You must have a legitimate written excuse such as a physician’s note, court duty notice, etc. Failure to do so will result in a zero for the missed test. The instructor retains the right to evaluate each case individually. Make-up of lab exams is not possible unless prior arrangements have been made to take the lab exam with another professor's class. This requires a week notice. You may only take one make-up test. No make-ups are allowed for the Final Exam.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
