When situations beyond a student’s control, such as illness, result in a student missing a portion of a course’s grade base, the student is responsible for contacting each professor in person or via email, if necessary. It is the prerogative of individual instructors to determine if a student should be allowed to make up tests or other assignments. Therefore, a student who misses class due to such circumstances should make arrangements, as soon as possible, with each instructor to determine potential make up procedure.
