Student Governance and Policies
||Each instructor shall be responsible for the fair and equitable
administration of the examinations in his or her course.
||A student absent from any examination or class activity
through sickness or other cause judged by the instructor
to be unavoidable shall be given an opportunity to take
a rescheduled examination or perform work judged by the
instructor to be the equivalent. If the instructor determines
that neither alternative is feasible during the current
quarter, the instructor may exempt the student from the
requirement. Examples of unavoidable cause include death
or serious illness in the immediate family, illness of
the student, and, provided previous notification is given,
observance of regularly scheduled religious obligations
and might possibly include attendance at academic conferences
or field trips, or participation in University-sponsored
activities such as debating contests or athletic competition.
The regulations for Incompletes in Scholastic
Regulations, Chapter 110, Subsection 1.A.3 shall apply.
||All students shall be required to take final examinations, provided
that in a course for which an examination is not the most appropriate test for the work
covered, the instructor may dispense with the final examination. When a final examination
is given it will be administered in accordance with the following procedures.
||A final examination schedule shall be provided by the Registrar, and all final
examinations shall be administered in accordance with this schedule. The dean may permit
an instructor to change the scheduled time of a final examination upon prior application
demonstrating good cause for such a change. In such cases the final examination may be
postponed; it may not be moved to an earlier time except to an earlier time within the
examination period if agreed to by all the students and the instructor. Before approving
the rescheduling of a final examination, the dean shall obtain assurances that the change
will not have an undue adverse impact on the students. The dean shall notify the Registrar
of approval granted to change the date of a final examination. An instructor shall not,
except in very unusual circumstances, permit a student to take a final examination earlier
than the scheduled time.
