Question from May N.
Can I make it my own schedule? ( meaning can I make up for a class I missed ? )
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! Trestle does not offer to make up classes, as many of our classes are full and we cannot accommodate student drop-ins from past sessions. That being said, if you inform your instructor, they will do their best to fill you in on missed material during the other class sessions. Hope this helps!

Instructor provided useful tips and feedback but class could benefit from more structure and is at a very inconvenient time of day.
