Final Examinations and Instructors' Grade Reports

  • 5.0: Final Examinations and Instructors' Grade Reports
  • 5.1: Penultimate week. No instructor may schedule an examination--comprehensive or non-comprehensive, except for laboratory practicums--during the week preceding the last week of a fall or spring semester.
  • 5.2: Final week. With the exception of those courses classified as individual instruction, clinic, studio, practice teaching, research, or distance courses and those offered for zero credits, each class is expected to meet for a two-hour session during the last week of each fall or spring semester. The two-hour session may be used for:
    1. a final examination
    2. a last, non-comprehensive examination
    3. submission of out-of-class examination or assignments, or
    4. a regular class meeting.
  • 5.3: Conflicts. A student who is scheduled to take on one day more than two final examinations, or who has a final-examination conflict, or who is scheduled to take a state, national, or professional licensing examination may contact the instructors involved, prior to the last week of regularly scheduled classes, to obtain appropriate rescheduling. If the student and the instructors cannot agree upon a rescheduling, the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs or a designee shall investigate and issue a binding schedule. Instructors shall not penalize a student who chooses to reschedule an examination under these options.
  • 5.4: Absences. Any student who must miss a final examination because of an emergency must contact the instructor as soon as possible. A student who misses a final examination may receive a grade of F for the course.
  • 5.5: Grade reports. Course grades are to be delivered to the Registrar's Office as completed, but not later than 5 p.m. on the Monday following the last scheduled examination.
