Quizzes or assignment are due on a weekly basis; students should have dedicated time to study for the course material  in order to be successful.

Note: All students must take the final exam on the scheduled date. If a student has a scheduling conflict with the scheduled exam date and time, the student must provide written proof of conflict and get it approved by the course director to take the exam at an agreed scheduled time. No other exceptions will be made regarding taking the exam early.
