Missed exams must be made up on or before the next class period. In a
rare situation where the exam can not be made up in that time period,
Test Policy:

the student will be given an exam different than that taken by the rest of
the class.

Disabilities Act:

Students with disabilities who need accommodations to achieve course
objectives should file an accommodation application with Learning
Services, Cedar Hall 2063 and provide a written plan of accommodation
to the accommodation being provided.

Student Evaluation:

Unit Exams
