FAQ Details

How does a faculty member receive an exception to the final exam requirement or offer an alternative exam?

Faculty members will use the online tool to request an exception to the policy. The request will be approved by the department chair or the chair's designee.

According to College policy an instructor may request an exception, and the chair may grant the 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.

Please note that some course types are excluded from automatic scheduling. Faculty members offering a course in the excluded list are not required to request an exception from the chair.
