Notice: Alternate exams are not being offered in Fall 2020 and Spring 2021. Please contact the school dean if your department requires a virtual common exam. Virtual common exams may be offered only by exceptions approved by the dean when there is a demonstrated need or requirement.
Alternate exams may be requested online directly by faculty members. In addition, exam waivers (requests to NOT offer an exam or to offer an alternate format) may also be submitted online. To request an exam online:
Final examinations are required. An instructor may request an exception to this policy from the department chair. The chair may grant such request if: (1) the nature of the course makes such action desirable; or (2) an adequate series of other evaluation procedures is substituted. An instructor may have a policy of exempting students who meet specified criteria from final examinations: the policy and criteria shall be stated and placed on file with the department chair.
Final examinations or last examinations of the course are given during final examination week (except for examinations in quarter courses, which end in the middle of the semester.) No examinations, quizzes, or tests of any type should be given during the last week of classes prior to the published final examination week. Any deviation from this policy must be approved in advance by the appropriate department chair and school dean.
