Attendance/Make-up work:

Sports Medicine is a cumulative subject and any work you might miss is imperative to
understanding the following day’s work. Students will be allowed one day for each day
absent to complete make-up work. Students will be entirely responsible for getting all work
missed and completing it on time. Any work due on the day you were absent will be due
the day you return. It is your responsibility to turn in your assignments. You must make
arrangements to make-up labs, test, and quizzes. You have 1 week to make up a missed
test. If you have not made the test up within the week your grade will be a zero.


Students have the opportunity to retest any test failed within a given time period (usually 3-
5 days after the test is returned.) The original test must be corrected before the retest will
be given. The maximum grade a student may earn on a retest is a 70%.
