Statement on extra credit

Do you offer extra credit opportunities for students to improve their grades? According to University of Minnesota policy, if you offer any student an extra credit opportunity, you must extend the offer to all students. Be sure your policy regarding extra credit is clearly stated on your syllabus.

Example

EXTRA CREDIT

You can earn up to 3 extra credit points for bringing to class articles from newspapers or magazines that are related to the class discussion. Each time you do so is worth one point.
