quarter so that you can retake the course the next quarter or b) ’back date’ your withdrawal date to save you from getting a W or an F. Incomplete Admissions and Records has informed us that “Incompletes” are permitted only for students who are doing passing work but then, due to unforeseeable, emergency and justifiable reasons, are unable to complete work at the very end of the term. In this course, all assignments are available starting the first day of the term, and students are advised to work ahead. We therefore offer “Incompletes” only to students who have earned sufficient points to pass the course with a letter grade of C and can provide acceptable documentation that they have, for unforeseeable, emergency and justifiable reasons, been unable to complete assignments that are due Week 10, 11 and/or 12. Due to the difficulty of reopening textbook assignments, students will be given an alternative essay assignment and final exam. Final Course Grade At the end of the quarter, you will be assigned the final grade corresponding to whatever points you have earned. (See “Monitoring Your Grade” above.) Any questions regarding your final course grade must be resolved by 8 a.m. the morning after final course grades are posted. It is illegal and unethical for us to a) artificially lower your grade so that you can retake the course the next quarter or b) ’back date’ your withdrawal date to save you from getting a W or an F.

    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.
