All instructors are to evaluate the progress of each student and to provide documentary evidence for final grades. Exams may be oral or written. Final examinations are given during final exam week of the semester or term. A final examination schedule is published on FlashLine in the schedule of classes for a given semester several weeks before the end of the term. Final examinations are expected to be given as posted unless there is a conflict. These cases may be resolved with the Assistant/Associate Dean. Changes of the time and/or date of a final examination require prior approval of the Assistant/Associate Dean, but in any case, the exam must also be offered at the time scheduled and publicized by the University for those students who desire to take the exam at that time. University policy requires that if final examinations are not returned to the student, they must be retained for one year, excluding summers, before they may be destroyed.
