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) if the instructor has reason to believe the absence was beyond the student's control. If not, a grade of F must be recorded. (For additional information regarding Incompletes, please see the section of this Bulletin entitled "Grade of Incomplete.") The Committee on Absence of the Division of Student Affairs reviews excuses concerning absences from final examinations and informs instructors of its decisions.
