2 ATTENDANCE I. My policy regarding attendance at regular classes is as follows: I do not take attendance, and I do not count attendance towards your grade. Since a thorough understanding of my lectures is crucial to your performance on the exams, and therefore your grades, cutting class will be a serious mistake. If you should miss a class you are expected to obtain the missed material from a student who was at class. You are responsible for all material even that covered when you miss class. You are adults now and you are expected to conduct yourself as such and attend class. I do not require students to contact me or report absences if they are going to miss a regular class. Note: Exams and quizzes are not regular classes and the above rules do not apply. II. My policy regarding attendance at exams is as follows: There are “No” makeup exams or quizzes. If a truly extreme situation arises, you “Must contact me directly” using both my RCI e-mail address and office phone. This must be done immediately. I must agree the reason was extreme enough to miss the exam and verification of your situation will be required.

    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.
