If you cannot come to any of the exams, you have to make arrangements within the first two weeks of the course. We will accept very few reasons for not attending one of the exams. Those reasons are limited to: religious reasons, interviews for scholarships, and participation in intercollegiate sports.

Cheating will be taken very seriously. Every attempt to cheat will give you an automatic "F" for the course. You will not be allowed to drop the course, and your case will be forwarded to the student conduct committee.
