A written final classroom examination is required in every course and must be held at the same time scheduled by the Registrar's office. A graduating senior may be exempted from a final examination if the policy of the department or program is to exempt graduating seniors from final examinations. Exemptions are never automatic.
A graduating senior who has failed the final examination in only one course required for graduation is entitled to a special examination, provided that the student has a passing grade average in the course.
A student who misses a final examination for valid reasons may, after consultation with his/her instructor, be given a makeup final examination. The instructor must report the student's final grade in the course to the Office of the Registrar no later than the last day of classes of the following semester. Students taking one or more makeup final examinations must pay the special examination fee as scheduled under "Noninstructional Fees" (in the chapter on "Tuition and Fees" in this Bulletin) and present the Bursar's Receipt for the fee to the instructor.
