Please see the class policy for an explanation of how this course works. Also, please consult the syllabus to help you keep track of what is due when.


Excused Absences

You must have something in writing to be excused from a class. If you are too sick to get out of bed you should call Dial-a-Nurse. You must bring any absence excuses to 231/233 Loomis in person along with a filled "Course absence form" as soon as you return to class.

The deadline for turning in your excuses is within two weeks of the absence. Excuses from the emergency dean must be turned in within one week of the date on the letter. Obviously if you are absent the last week of the semester or have not received your excuse from the emergency dean, you should bring your excuse to us as soon as you receive it.

An EX means that the absence will not count against your grade, but an ABS becomes a zero. Please make sure you know your section(s) and TA name(s) of the classes you missed.
