If you have a conflict with another exam or other university-sponsored event:

By University policy, courses are not obligated to provide makeup exams for students taking concurrent courses, and we will not do so in this course. The Courses of Study states: "Students are expected to be present throughout each semester at all meetings of courses for which they are registered."  The term "meetings" includes exams, even when scheduled in the evening.

Retrieving Exams

We distribute prelims in the CS Handback room, Gates 216 (?) usually the day after the prelim. Bring your student ID card. Final exams may be reviewed the following semester but may not be taken from the room.
