Regularly scheduled examinations generally are announced at the beginning of the term. Unannounced examinations may be given at irregular intervals at the discretion of the instructor.
Final examinations are held at the close of each term. A student who misses a final examination for a valid reason may ask the instructor 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 associate dean of student affairs.
Deferred examinations from the fall term must be taken within two weeks before the beginning of the spring term. Deferred examinations from the spring term must be taken within two weeks after the close of the spring term. In case of extreme hardship, the time may be extended for a strictly limited period with written permission of the associate dean of student affairs.
