that I deem adequate on his/her letterhead stationery; stating that you are injured/too ill to do schoolwork between X and Y dates. The doctor’s note must include the date you became incapacitated and the date you can resume your schoolwork. To provide this documentation you will need to either leave it with our department receptionist in SS 144 on the Tempe campus or fax it to my attention at this fax number: (480) 965-6779. Once I contact your doctor’s office and confirm the authenticity of your documentation, I will create a schedule for you to make up the work you have missed. Observance of religious holidays Appendix II of this syllabus contains a list of the religious holidays recognized by ASU that take place during 2019. Students receive excused absences for any class meeting dates they miss due to their observance of religious holidays pertaining to their faiths. If you will be missing class on one of these dates for the purpose of religious observance, please advise me by email or in- person prior to the relevant date, so that I and the TAs are aware of the reason for your absence. If necessary, I can then create a schedule for you to make up any work you have missed. Participation in university-sanctioned activities If you are absent from one or more class meeting dates due to your participation in a university- sanctioned activity, you can receive an excused absence for the date(s) in-question if you supply written documentation, on the ASU organization’s letterhead stationery, of your participation in the event. Please provide your documentation during either the class meeting date prior, or the class meeting date immediately following, the activity in-question. If necessary, I can then create a schedule for you to make up any work you have missed. Requests for Incompletes ASU’s policy on giving a grade of “I” (incomplete), operationalized, boils down to this: An instructor can only give a grade of Incomplete when the following conditions are met: 1. The student has done acceptable (meaning C-average or better) work throughout the semester 2. The student has already completed all but one or two course requirements (e.g. one written assignment and/or one test remain to be completed) 3. The student has been rendered unable to complete the course because of illness or other impairments beyond the student’s control. The take-home message is this: If you complete all coursework in a timely fashion throughout the semester, maintain a C-average or better, and then get hit by a bus in November, you may qualify for a grade of Incomplete. Otherwise, in all likelihood, your situation will not meet the requisite criteria. Accommodation of Students with Disabilities Page 9 of 26
