so this change makes you miss another saturday class that you have also paid for? if i'm reading this right, you have grounds to ask for a refund in my opinion. if class times were changed and that change would cause me to miss a second class through no fault of my own, i'd be howling at the moon to administration about it.
i don't think lorirn2b is missing another class on saturday. she picked her lab time for early am 9-11, with 11-2 as lecture. so she's out by 2 in order to be with her daughter and do other homework. other students decided to sleep in, come to lecture at 11 and then do their lab after lecture and stay on campus til 4...
so it sounds as if the prof changed it - extra study session is now 9-11 (instead of early am lab), lecture is 11-2 and now everyone is in lab until 4....which doesn't work for lorirn2b....
am i getting this straight?
if that is indeed the case, i'm not sure if a refund is due. is the extra study session voluntary or mandatory? i would guess voluntary, since admin did not approve....
but i'm not sure what the rub is...if it was voluntary, it sounds as if lorirn2b would make the sacrifice to attend on a friday night as opposed to a saturday morning. but then again, her class schedule for lab has been altered to accomodate a voluntary activity....:uhoh21:
excuse me for thinking out loud as i type...i think a refund would be due.
your class schedule has been altered by the professor for a voluntary activity, taking away your lab time and moving it to a time not convenient for you. i think that case can definitely be made and i'd pursue it.
