This policy also covers quizzes if the particular quiz accounts for more than 10% of the course grade. Homework assignments, term projects, presentations, laboratory exams or reports, and short quizzes (quizzes worth less than or equal to 10% of the course grade) are not covered by this policy. Violation of this policy will be first referred to the Dean of the academic unit that offers the course.
