mlnosbis 9/5/2018:
1) Effective date must be future semester, after Fall 2018
Everything else looks good, this action is primarily to add 488.

cohen (9/5/2018):
I think this looks like a great course! I particularly appreciate the fact that students have the option of getting feedback on the Family History paper before the final submission. Below are a few suggestions for the syllabus.
1. The grading scales occasionally have some gaps, for example between 93 and 94. I would suggest changing those.
2.Under the Attendance Policy, students will usually be able to make arrangements for missed work within a week. But there are times (serious illness, for example) when that may not be possible. Will those cases be handled on a case by case basis?
3. S/U grading is not an option for 588, but is an option for 488. I would suggest noting that in the Credit Only section.

ABGS Reviewer Comments 9/17/2018:
-No concerns
jerudolp (Wed, 03 Jan 2018 18:04:05 GMT): Rollback: Sending back as you requested so that you can add HI 488 syllabus.
