Only students with authorized absences (see University Class Attendance Policy) may make up missed examinations, quizzes (announced or unannounced), and in-class exercises. Arrangements must be made in advance if at all possible. In all cases, the instructor must be contacted no later than the day of the scheduled exam or no makeup will be allowed. A deduction will be assessed for a late exam.
Regular attendance is expected and roll will be taken. Upon a student's third unauthorized absence, that student will be dropped for nonattendance and receive a grade of WF for the course.
