Course Policies:

  1. The number of exams and point totals will remain the same.
  2. Students are encouraged to ask questions during class and to visit during office hours.
  3. Advance notice will be required for make-up exams, unless extenuating circumstances prevent such notice. Acceptable reasons for makeup work or no late penalty on projects include illness, personal tragedy, or participation in university-sponsored activities. Students must be able to provide written verification for such absences.
  4. While I am the instructor, my performance is monitored by faculty in the Department of Geography. Dr. Gavin Bridge is the principal faculty contact for this course. Should you have a problem that you feel requires additional review, you may contact Dr. Bridge at 325-5325.
