Emergency Exam Rescheduling

Contact me on the morning of the exam if an extraordinary issue precludes you from taking an exam. I will respond to message during the morning. If you become very ill overnight or the morning of an exam, contact me and stay home.  We can reschedule exams when a person has a compelling reason, including illness.
