I. Purpose

This policy describes the role of examinations.

II. Accountability

Under the direction of the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and the Program Director, each faculty member and student shall have responsibility for this policy.

III. Policy

Examinations are administered on a regular basis and are considered essential to a student's learning experiences. An examination is an excellent means for clarifying course objectives and for providing students with objective feedback concerning their level of progress.

A. Make-up Exam:

It is the student's responsibility to be present for all scheduled examinations. Any student who is absent from a scheduled examination will automatically receive a grade of "F" for that examination unless the absence is due to illness or a sudden emergency which must be documented by a physician or other suitable evidence.

A student missing an examination due to reasonable circumstances described above is to be examined at the convenience of the instructor within two weeks after the student's return to class.

B. Repeat Examination:

Repetition of an examination is at the discretion of the instructor; it shall not be in violation of the examination policy statement regarding absenteeism.

The student may not receive a grade higher than the minimal passing grade or the grade delineated by program policies.
