Excused Absences from Examinations

Excused Absences from Examinations

If a student is excused by the Dean or his or her delegate from taking a final examination at the scheduled time either in a required or an elective course because of a demonstration of serious illness or other compelling circumstances, the student must take a makeup examination in the course at a time determined by the Office of Academic Records, but not later than four weeks from the last scheduled examination for the semester.

Grades received on makeup examinations are included in the student’s grade-point average .
