Email Policy: Exam Procedures: Students must bring their UCLA ID cards to the midterms and to the final exam. Phones must be turned off. Cheating on an exam results in a score of zero on that exam. Exams can be regraded at most 15 days after the date of the exam. If you are an OSD student, I would encourage you to discuss with me ways that I can improve your learning experience; I would also encourage you to contact the OSD office to confirm your exam arrangements at the beginning of the quarter.
