Exam Regrade policy: regrade requests must be submitted in writing, on a separate page stapled to the front of the exam, within one week of the day they are returned to the class.
Cheating policy: The penalty for cheating on an exam is usually a 0 for the entire exam. Also, by university policy, a course with a cheating violation cannot be later retaken for a grade replacement. More information: academic integrity and
grade replacement.
