Makeup Examinations


To derive optimal educational benefits from their collegiate experience, a student must attend classes regularly and take examinations on schedule dates. In the event that a student must miss examinations for valid and verifiable reasons, the student shall be given some fair and appropriate means of making up the examinations. The particular means and times for making up these examinations are left to the discretion of the instructor and shall be announced at the beginning of each enrollment period.

A student is responsible for all academic work missed during absences, whatever the reasons. The student shall keep instructors informed about anticipated absences, especially when examinations are scheduled on these dates, and the student shall make prior arrangements with instructors regarding assignments and examinations in conformity with the instructors’ announced policies. In the event of emergency absences, the student shall initiate such arrangements immediately. A student who misses final examinations for emergency reasons shall notify instructors or the academic dean immediately.

In each instance the instructor shall determine what constitutes “valid and verifiable reasons” and “emergency absences.”
