If you are absent on the day a major paper is due, then the paper must still be turned in that day, at or before class meeting time, or one grade per day late will be deducted. This includes every day of the week and weekend, not just class days.
An example: A paper due on Friday receives a B+. However, because it was turned in Monday, three days late, the final grade will be C. Any legitimate excuses must be verified by an official note (doctor, etc.), and you must inform me ASAP.
Missed quizzes can only be made up with a doctor’s note.
