ASTRONOMY 291 - BASIC ASTROPHYSICS AND PLANETARY ASTRONOMY
Autumn Quarter 2010
Each of the midterm examinations will account for 20% of the course grade.
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.
