the day grades are returned will not be processed, even if individuals were absent the day the grades were returned. Also, keep in mind that a re-grade request may result in the re- grading of the entire assignment which could result in additional points being taken away, as well as points being added back. No "extra credit" assignments will be given . All grades will be based on the grading criteria established in this syllabus. Do not make any requests for policy exceptions in front of other students. In the interest of equity and in order to avoid a flood of similar requests from other students, I will be forced to deny your request in such circumstances, regardless of its merits. This includes, but is not limited to: requesting additional time for assignments, rescheduling exams, reasons for turning in assignments late in class. These and similar concerns should be discussed privately. If a matter is important enough for you to ask for an exemption then it should warrant a visit to me during office hours or a scheduled appointment time or even an e-mail or phone call.

When you are working in business and industry, you will rarely encounter problems presented precisely as they are in class or in the textbook. Therefore, the ability to transfer knowledge is essential. This ability is tested on exams and projects. In addition to demonstrating a level of knowledge comparable to textbook type problems, you will need to understand the relationships underlying the course material for you to score well on the exams.

    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.

    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.
