If you have a conflict with any of the exams, you must inform the instructor as soon as possible and at least one month before the exam. Make-up exams will not be given unless the student has two other exams scheduled the same day. Students with three exams scheduled on the same day should visit the Student Service Center in 205 Kent Hall to fill out a form which can then be submitted to each instructor or department. An attempt will then be made to arrange for one of the instructors to schedule a make-up exam on a different day. Students can only be excused from the exams because of serious illness or family emergency; documentation from your doctor or dean must be provided.
No electronic devices (laptops, calculators, telephones) are allowed during exams.
Homework will be graded and will count for 20% of the final grade. Late homework will not be accepted.
The two lowest grades (of 12 assignments) will be dropped.
Grades will be computed as follows:
Homework (and occasional quizzes): 20% Final exam: 40% Midterms: 20% each
Academic integrity: Students are encouraged to work together on homework but any assignments handed in should be the work of the person whose name appears at the top of the page. Collaboration during exams is considered cheating and is taken very seriously. Cheating during a midterm or final entails failing the course. Students are advised to consult the Columbia University Undergraduate Guide to Academic Integrity.
Disability services: In order to ensure their rights to reasonable accommodations, it is the responsibility of students to report any learning-related disabilities, to do so in a timely fashion, and to do so through the Office of Disability Services. Students who have documented conditions and are determined by DS to need individualized services will be provided an DS-certified ‘Accommodation Letter’. It is students’ responsibility to provide this letter to all their instructors and in so doing request the stated accommodations.
More information on the DS registration process is available online at https://health.columbia.edu/content/disability-services.
