Exceptions Prelab Quizzes and the Formal Lab Report: Since your prelab quiz opens 3 days in advance of your lab session and you have many weeks to complete your formal lab report, only long-term absences are acceptable grounds for quiz or report extensions. In that case, appropriate written documentation is required within 7 days. “Long - term absence” refers to absences of more than three (3) consecutive days due to major or chronic physical or mental health conditions, or other extenuating circumstances such as caregiving duties; immediate family illness, injury or death; involvement in an accident; legal proceedings; being a victim of a crime, domestic or intimate partner violence. Exceptions Accommodations: if you have an accessibility plan that already allows for coursework deferrals or deadline extensions, you do not need to submit an SDA form or appropriate documentation. You do need to contact your instructor in advance to initiate your plan. Exceptions Final Exam: Requests for alternate arrangements for missed University-scheduled FINAL exams are handled under a separate University regulation: Requests for an Alternative Final Examination Time .

    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.
