Absences from Final Examinations

A student who fails to attend the final examination of a course and who has a passing grade up to that time may be given a grade of I (Incomplete). [For additional information regarding Incompletes, please see the section of this Bulletin entitled "Grade of Incomplete," which can be found under "Academic Policies & Procedures."] The Committee on Absence of the Division of Student Affairs reviews excuses concerning absences from final examinations and informs instructors of its decisions.

Students scheduled for more than three examinations in one day may have their examination schedule adjusted if they notify the instructor or department of the course scheduled for the fourth (and additional) final examination of the day. It is the student’s responsibility to be aware of the date and time of the final examination for each of his or her classes before officially enrolling. See the Enrollment and Student Academic Information Bulletin (Office of the Registrar) each semester for further information.
