There is a set of policies that govern final exams, including policies for students who cannot take their final:
- There is an official make up period (the first week of spring or fall semester) for any student who has to miss an exam due to illness, death in the family, religious observance or some other unusual circumstance.
- Students who have three final exams in one day can reschedule the exam that takes place in the middle. That exam can be rescheduled during the final exam period if the student and instructor can agree on a date or it can be held during the official make up period.
Student Health Services will not provide notes verifying student illnesses. Therefore, you should design policies that do not require medical confirmation. Should a student miss a midterm and not reach out to you, you should contact the student's advising office.
