Regularly scheduled examinations generally are announced at the beginning of the semester. Unannounced examinations may be given at irregular intervals at the discretion of the faculty member. It is the practice at the college to administer missed examinations, regardless of whether they are excused or unexcused, during the final examination period of the semester. The final decision is left to the discretion of the faculty.
Final examinations are held at the close of each semester. A student who misses a final examination for a valid reason may ask the faculty member for a deferred examination. If the student is denied permission to take a deferred examination, this decision may be appealed to the course leader, and finally, to the appropriate associate dean.
Deferred examinations from the fall semester must be taken within two weeks before the beginning of the spring semester. Deferred examinations from the spring semester must be taken within two weeks after the close of the spring semester. In case of extreme hardship, the time may be extended through the summer but must be completed no later than two weeks before the beginning of the fall semester.
