Add/Drop Policy:
All add/drop/change requests can be doneon-linefor the first 2 weeks of
classes via WebReg.
Neither the instructors nor the department office can help students get into a

Make-up Final Exam Policy:
It is expected that students will make every effort to take their final exam at
the scheduled time. However, requests for make-up final exams will be
considered under the following guidelines:
· A student will be granted a make-up if the Saturday final exam time
violates the student’s religious creed.
· A student may be granted a make-up exam at the discretion of the
course facilitator if the exam time would result in loss of wages constituting
financial hardship, need for child care resulting in financial hardship, inability
to procure transportation or loss of employment.
· A student may be granted a make-up exam at the discretion of the
course facilitator if there is a verifiable emergency, which prevents the
student from taking the final examination at the scheduled time. Such
emergencies include, but are not limited to, serious illness, death of
immediate family member, or serious accident.
· A student will be granted a make-up if they are enrolled in Math 2B at
the same time they are re-taking Math 2A for a higher grade.
· During Fall, Winter and Spring, students registered with the Disability
Services Center (DSC) will be taking the exam at DSC on Saturday at the
same time of the regular exam. During the Summer, DSC students will have
to request a make-up exam. (All such requests will be approved.)
In all cases, the petition for make-up final exam must be presented with
verifiable evidence. Vacation plans will not constitute a legitimate excuse.
