8. Absences: See Section 23.3 of the University Calendar. Excused absence is a privilege, not a right, and is
granted at the discretion of the instructor (term exams) or the Faculty (final exam). Permissible excuses
include (but are not limited to) incapacitating illness, severe domestic affliction, or other compelling reasons
(including religious conviction).
For an excused absence where the cause is religious belief, a student must contact the instructor and the lab
coordinator within two weeks of the start of the Winter term classes.
Midterm exams: No makeup exam is given. An excused absence will transfer the weight of the missed
exam to the final exam without exception. Excuses with appropriate documentation (UofA medical form,
Doctor’s note, UofA coach’s letter, Statutory Declaration, etc.) must be presented to me within 48 hours of
the exam. An unexcused absence from an exam will result in a score of zero for that exam.
Final: Only the student's Faculty can defer final examinations. Applications for deferrals must be initiated
within two working days of the missed examination. Misrepresentation of facts to gain a deferred
examination is a serious breach of the Code of Student Behaviour. Upon obtaining a deferral, the student
must write a deferred final examination. The deferred final examination for Chem 101/3 is scheduled for
Tuesday, May 14, 2019, at 1:00–4:00 pm in Chem E3-25.
1. Failure to register in and attend the laboratory will result in a Fail grade in the course. If you took this course
previously at the University of Alberta and failed, you may be eligible for a laboratory exemption. To
formally apply for such an exemption, please see the lab coordinator Dr. Apelblat in Chemistry E2–34B.
2. Safety glasses for laboratory are mandatory. You must also comply with all other laboratory regulations as
specified in the laboratory manual.
3. Labs start Jan 28. Lab room assignments posted on the Lab website Jan 23. Lab Manual required. See Lab

5. Be aware that the Department of Chemistry has a Lab Locker Rental Fee of $15/course that is applied to all
courses in which students are assigned to use lockers containing equipment for individual student use. The
lab locker fee is for material rented or leased to students in their Chemistry lab lockers (or lab drawers).
Courses with a lab locker fee: CHEM 101, 102 103, 105, 164, 261, 263, 211, 213, 241, 243, 333, 361, 363,
