It is the responsibility of the student to ask for missed assignments. When there are no classroom assignments students are given daily objective points for staying active and focused on their project. A student who has missed a day is still required to make up missed daily points. Students can make up daily points with a course related article summary. If a student’s situation results in an extended excused absents please make prior arrangements for assignments. Unexcused absences may not be made up.
