MISSED EXAM POLICY
If a student is going to miss an examination, it is the student’s responsibility to contact the instructor prior to the exam to arrange with the instructor to make up the missed exam. A 5% reduction will be taken for each day after the scheduled exam date. The professor reserves the right to make unscheduled exams essay in nature and considerably more challenging.
Regular class attendance is required. No distinction is made between excused and unexcused absences unless the absence has been cleared through the office of the Dean of Students, Athletic Department or Academic Affairs. If a student misses a lecture, it is the student’s responsibility to work with other class members to determine what material was missed. Please refer to the MSU Student Handbook for more information.
