7. Acceptable reasons for missing a workshop or examination are: (1) athletic participation –official University teams only, not intramurals (provide the General Biology Office with Coach's Letter within the first two weeks of the semester); (2) religious observance* (see below); (3) serious illness (provide documenting letter from your licensed healthcare provider or Dean of Student's Office; ); (4) conflict with a regularly scheduled class for an exam; (5) death in your immediate family (provide supporting letter from your Dean of Student's Office; ). *For Religious Observances (i) download from Sakai-Resources, (ii) complete, and (iii) submit a Notice of Expected Absence Due to Religious Observance form to [email protected] by 5 pm Friday September 16 (9/16/16) for accommodations to be considered. 8. In no case will a submission to the Student Absence Report System be sufficient cause for a student to be granted an excused absence. Written verification of all acceptable reasons for missing a workshop or examinations is required; it is the student’s responsibility to provide such documentation. The SARS system has no utility for General Biology; there is no need for students to submit a report through SARS for General Biology; reports received will be ignored. 9. Absences can only be approved or excused by the Director of General Biology regardless of which faculty member is lecturing. 10. You must check for General Biology announcements on Sakai at least once a day. Go to sakai.rutgers.edu, log in with your RU Net ID and password, and click on General Biology 115. Be attentive to e-mails from Sakai. Be sure to pay your term bill on time - otherwise you will be deregistered from General Biology 115 and unable to access Sakai. 11. If you are deregistered because of term bill payment issues, immediately contact the General Biology office so that we are aware of why you are no longer on the roster. You will be granted a grace period, but you must work to rectify the problem. Students must be officially registered to take exams, attend workshops, and receive a grade. You will be denied access to exams and workshop if you are not registered after the grace period. 12. All exams are comprehensive. While the newest material will be emphasized on the second midterm exam and final exam, students will be expected to make linkages between new material and the older material; at least 50% of the questions will be upper level questions.
