Speech Lab Credit and Reservations

To receive full credit for attending Speech Lab, students must complete a full recitation of their speech. Students must also visit the Speech Lab at least one day before their speech is due. Failure to visit before 24 hours prior to the date of their speech will result in no credit. Students interested in reserving time for a brainstorming session will receive partial credit.

To be guaranteed a time slot, students are encouraged to reserve their spot at least one week in advance as slots fill up quickly. Cancellations must be made 24 hours in advance and no shows will be reported to the course instructor.
