control and are acceptable to the instructor; (c) the student presents these reasons prior to the time that the final grade roster is due. The instructor must submit an Incomplete report with the final grade roster for the IN to be recorded. This report is a contract for the student to complete the course work with that instructor or one designated by the department executive officer in the way described and by the time indicated on the report. In resolving the IN, the student may not register for the course a second time, but must follow the procedures detailed on the report. An IN must be removed by the end of the student's first semester or summer session in residence subsequent to the occurrence, or, if not in residence, no later than one calendar year after the occurrence. When the student submits the work, the instructor will grade it and change the IN to the appropriate grade. If an undergraduate fails to meet the stated conditions, the instructor will assign an E for the final grade. Students who miss class are responsible for all notes, announcements, and handouts for that class. Note that you will be graded according to the grading criteria listed above. Please do not ask to be bumped up to the next highest grade at the end of the semester (e.g., ask me for a C in the course when you have a 67.7% in the course). I will not do this. The number one factor that puts students in this situation is missing class. I have a drop policy because I understand that sometimes students must miss class. However, if you are the type of student who frequently misses classes for any reason (e.g., work, family responsibilities, etc.), I recommend that you drop my course and take another course in which attendance is less likely to affect your grades. With this said, if you have any problems or concerns throughout the class, please come see us during our office hours, before it is too late at the end of the semester. I am happy to work with you during the semester to help facilitate your understanding of the course material. Please use office hours whenever possible, but I am willing to make appointments if your schedule makes it impossible to make office hours. Note that you can also email me, however, please understand that I receive many e-mails in a given day. Each semester I teach up to three classes and have as many as 300-400 students. At this point I am unable to respond to all of the emails I receive. Provided you ask a reasonable question and articulate yourself clearly in your message, I will respond. If what you ask is a good question that is relevant to the rest of the class, I will frequently address your question in class instead of responding to the e-mail. Finally, note that, although e-mail may seem private and secure, sending an e-mail is roughly like sending a postcard through the regular mail. Anyone who desires to take a look, and, in the case of email, has some technical knowledge, can do so. While your TAs and I will keep any information you

    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.
