This encouragement is done with the goal of enhancing the overall learning experience. CELL PHONES: Cell phones are to be turned off during lectures. Any use of cell phones will not be permitted during exams. NOTE: Missed Term Exams: Deferral of term work is a privilege and not a right; there is no guarantee that a deferral will be granted.
