i was looking up some policy online, and i found:
"It is your responsibility to withdraw if your are unable to attend for the quarter." (http://www.washington.edu/students/reg/wdoffleave.html#Q2)
"students who experience circumstances taht make it difficult" (http://depts.washington.edu/grading/timelines/options.htm#incompletes)
and i really don't think i need to give 89237098237432 examples, you get the idea. i realize its really not that big a deal, everyone makes mistakes, blah blah. but what happened to spell/grammar check? if it makes me look like an idiot when i use terrible grammar or whatever in an essay, you'd think they'd be more meticulous when it comes to publishing information for the public.
anyway just a thought.
