  • There are no make up tests given in MCB100.
    If you must miss an exam due to illness, accident, tragedy etc., your scores may be prorated.
    BUT... in order for you to get a prorated exam score you must contact Dr. Chapman as soon as possible.

  • If you take an exam when you are not feeling well, the grade you get on the exam will stand. You are not allowed to take an exam and then decide at a later date if you want to keep that score or not. If, on the day of an exam, you feel too sick to take the test, then don't take the exam. See a doctor and get a note so your grade can be prorated. It's also good to see a doctor so you can get medical treatment for your illness. If you feel sick, you might have an infection. If you have a contagious infection that makes you too sick to take an exam, don't come to class.

  • If you need to take a conflict exam, contact Dr. Chapman at least three days before the test.
    Conflict exams are given on the day before a regularily scheduled exam.
    Contact Dr. Chapman by e-mail if you need to take the conflict exam.
    Be prepared to present documentation that verifies an officially acceptable reason for being allowed to take the conflict exam.

  • Copies of: Microbiology With Diseases by Taxonomy, by Robert Bauman are on reserve in the Undergraduate Library and the Chemistry Library and the ACES Library. Talk to the helpful librarians at the Reserve Desk. The Chemistry Library is on the first floor of Noyes Lab at the Northeast end of the building.
  • If you are in the James Scholar Program and you wish to work on a James Scholar Project in MCB 100, contact Dr. Chapman.
