My son just started his semester at Metro State. In October he has to fly to New York to attend his brothers wedding and of course too, he's in the wedding party. He just looked at his test schedule and sees he has a test while he's going to be in New York attending the wedding.


How strict are they with their makeup policies regarding tests. Is it up the individual teacher whether to let them take it beforehand or afterwards or will he just have to failing grade for the test?

HE SHOULD ASK THE PROFESSOR.

Seriously, he couldn't figure this out himself? How on earth can an anonymous Internet forum have more info about an individual professor's policies than the professor himself/herself?!!

(Sorry for the rant ... I am always just amazed at people who ask Internet strangers questions that could EASILY be answered by, you know, one person in REAL LIFE.)

Of course he intends to ask the professor. I asked this question for myself. He doesn't even know I'm on this board. Just wanted to know if anyone knew the schools rules, that's all. My own curiosity question and a mom that worries all the time being that he lives in Colorado and I live in New York. LOL

If I was the prof, I would flunk him if he missed the exam.
I assume this is his brother's first wedding. He will have another opportunity.

Not at all! He's been out of the house on his own for the past 5 years and living in another state.

Ah, OK. But you do know that professors usually have autonomy in making these decisions, right? That's why an anonymous Internet board can't tell you what HIS professor will actually do.

I AM a college professor, and under the circumstances, I would likely allow him to take the exam EARLY. Honestly, usually students would want to take it LATER -- i.e., after they got back. Um, no, that won't work. But early (and maybe a different test, if I think it will be a problem)? Probably possible.

I'm going to just rip the bandaid off.

Little Johnie doesn't want to go to his brothers wedding so has told you he will flunk a test if he leaves on that date. A test on that date may or may not be real. If this were a real concern he would have already asked the prof. and told you the answer or just made arrangements to take the test early or late without passing on the info to mom.

Mom, you really need to let this guy go. I'm guessing he's your youngest and the last to leave the nest. So far on this forum you've asked about apartments for him and how to register his car, and now you are worried about him missing a college class???

Hate to sound rude, but I think that you need to find a hobby to keep you busy.

I was an adjunct lecturer at CU-Denver and I had the autonomy to handle a situation like that on my own. I doubt Metro has some sort of overarching policy regarding this situation, so it would be best for him to talk to his professor about it, now.
