Policies for Makeup exams and Late Submissions:
The dates for all exams, excluding quizzes, will be announced. All exams (quizzes, midterm and the comprehensive Final) will be held in the same classroom as regular lectures. There will be no make-up exams for missed quizzes, mid-term, and finals. If you have an officially required university event or family or medical emergency that prevents you from attending the midterm, or the final, let me know as soon as possible and provide documentation to reschedule.

There will be about 12-14 quizzes; 1 quizz where you had your lowest scores will be dropped. You must be in the class for the full lecture for any possible in-class quizzes
