the story goes as such:
the professor sends an email on sunday stating that the online final exam will open tues and close next fri. the student goes online to take the exam on sat but it has already closed. what he meant was that the final would close this fri not next fri, a common misunderstanding. the student emails the professor to inquire about the exam and is told that the exam is already closed and to pay attention to deadlines printed in the curriculum. he explains that he sees no compelling reason to allow the student to take the final eventhough it would mean that the student would fail the entire class. the student resonds bysaying that the class has been behind by a week or more the entire semester and didnt think twice about the final being a week behind as well. the final email from the professor pretty much says that the conversation is over and to have a nice holiday. this is a graduate course at a well known and accredited medical school. the student has a 88% avg and the final is worth 30%.
the question is this. if the students goes all the way up the schools chain to even the schools president and still is not allowed to take the final does he/she have any grounds to recoup the $3800 for the class? would the eyes of the law see it as unfair/unjust to fail a student based on miscommunication on the part of the professor? any advice would be appriciated. thanks.
