VII.
“W” Grade Policy
A student may withdraw with a W through October 18, 2004. Any student withdrawing after that
date will receive a W grade if the student has been attending class regularly, attempting to achieve,
and has not been involved in academic dishonesty. Any student withdrawing from BIO 106 must
also withdraw from BIO 107.
VIII. Attendance
This class meets TR from 11:00-12:00 in Room 265 JCC. Since lab exercises are not to be made
up without a legitimate reason, attendance is absolutely necessary. For each absence five points
will be deducted from the attendance/participation/quiz grade. Missing six laboratory classes will
result in a grade of E.
All students are expected to attend class regularly. Students are responsible for course work
covered during all class periods, including the first class meeting. Class attendance will be
recorded for each class meeting.
If a student presents the instructor with an adequate and documented reason for an absence, the
instructor normally will give the student an opportunity to make up the work missed, if this is
feasible. Adequate reasons involve circumstances beyond the student’s control, such as personal
illness, critical illness or death in the immediate family, or participation in an approved college
activity. It is the student’s responsibility to initiate the request to make up class work missed.
