I really need help figuring out what to do/who to contact, here!

<p>Alright, to attempt and make a long story short, I've been accepted (and already sent my deposit in, actually...very committed!) to a university. All was good, just maintaining my grades and trying to get to August, right?</p>

<p>Well, I spent much of January in Thailand teaching English and staffing a family education conference. I am dual-enrolled at a local college, and am taking 2 classes (they were not required for graduation, I had all my necessary credits at the end of my junior year, actually): Gen Chem and Human Nutrition. </p>

<p>Before the spring semester started, I approached both of the profs and they were ok with my being in Thailand for the first few weeks. I even asked my Gen Chem lab teacher if I'd be able to get a "decent grade" in lab--B+ at least! He said it wouldn't be a problem, and though I'd collect two 0's for the labs I missed, it would be ok.</p>

<p>So I missed the 2 labs, and though I've received high B's/A's on all of my following labs, I calculated my lab grade today: SIXTY-ONE percent! </p>

<p>Lab is worth 20% of my gen chem grade. If I get below a 60 in lab, I automatically FAIL the whole course (including the lecture component).</p>

<p>I asked my prof if I could do something to get extra credit--30 page research paper, etc. and he said he wouldn't take anything. I literally have to be almost perfect to keep this above a 60, becase of how much the following labs are worth, etc.</p>

<p>I don't know what to do - should I withdraw from the course? (I have 'til next Friday, the 7th.) Should I finish strong, and hope for the best, and figure I may very well end up with a C? Should I contact my school for next year, and see what they think? Could my admission be rescinded because of this? Would it automatically be rescinded from withdrawing from the course?</p>

<p>Thanks! I'd really like ANY advice/experience with this. I'm drawing such a blank at what to do here!</p>

<p>It really depends on the school, since they have different policies. Call them and explain situation is the best advice I could give.</p>

<p>Thanks for the reply. Any thoughts on who I should ask for at the admission's office when I call?</p>

<p>Ask for your regional admissions officer. He/she is likely the person who initially reads your file.</p>
