ASTRONOMY 291 - BASIC ASTROPHYSICS AND PLANETARY ASTRONOMY

EXAMINATION INFORMATION

Autumn Quarter 2010

Saturn
Examinations:
There will be three midterm examinations and a comprehensive final examination, tentatively scheduled for the following dates:
The final exam will be comprehensive. The final exam will be open book, open notes. This is for the final exam only. No notes or books are allowed for the midterm exams, however.

Each of the midterm examinations will account for 20% of the course grade.

Make-up Examinations:
Make-up examinations will be allowed under extraordinary circumstances only (as determined by the professor), e.g., illness, or personal tragedy. Make-up midterms usually will be one-hour oral examinations.

If an examination conflicts with an approved University function (e.g., if you are a member of a varsity athletic team or TBDBITL and are required to leave town), you may take an exam earlier than the scheduled date, provided that you obtain permission from the professor at least a week in advance.

If you should miss the final examination, your course grade will be recorded as a failure unless you contact Dr. Peterson (by phone, if necessary) before noon on Wednesday, 7 December and arrange to take the final at the beginning of Winter Quarter - in this case you will receive a grade of incomplete.
