I just signed up for a new class and sometimes my lab gets out late at the satelite campus and I told the professor I might be late because and she was not understanding at all but said I have 6 hrs of absenceness.

The other thing is she says the class is at 4-6:50 and I have another class at 7. And she says the class is 4-7. Doesn't she have to abide by the schedule?

Thanks

Your post is confusing. Is one class at a satelite campus and another class at the main campus? How long of a drive is it from the satelite to the main campus and how late are you to class? Is the 7 PM class at the main campus? All of your profs should abide by the posted end time. I find it ironic that your prof is complaining about a prof holding you over and making you late for her class, however, she is holding you over to make you over to make you late for your next class. Sometimes when class is over you just gotta get up and walk out.

Your professor isn't allowed to hold you the extra 10 minutes, so if you wanted to, you could leave at 6:50 and she couldn't say anything. The other part of your post, seems to be your fault. You scheduled your classes too close together and you can't just tell your prof "my bad, I'm going to be late to your class every single day." That's rude and can be disruptive to your professor and the other students. Your prof could drop you from her class, especially if you've already missed six hours.

Well, yes, she does have to abide by the schedule, and so do you...class starts at 4 pm. That means you have to be there at that time.

Send a letter, or better yet try to meet in person, with the dean and discuss the impossiblities that exist for you due to traveling. If they are scheduling classes that are impossible to be seated in then they should work to fix your situation.
