1. Any student who has three examinations in 48 hours may request that one be rescheduled. Such requests are handled as a matter of course by the Registrar. It is expected that students will sit for all examinations as scheduled. Examinations are rescheduled by the Dean of Students Office only in extremely limited circumstances, such as requests that relate to the health of the student, or close family member, or death of a family member. Any rescheduled examination will be administered on a date no earlier than the date originally set. Please note that Exam Soft may not be available for rescheduled examinations. Tentative examination schedules are available to students at the time of course pre-registration. Students are therefore expected to have reviewed and considered the examination schedule for all courses in which they enroll.
2. The general policy is that exams will not be postponed for situations occurring during the semester that cause a student to lose study time. If a student experiences such a situation, he or she is encouraged to meet, as soon as possible, with the Dean of Students Office to discuss what options are available to the student. If properly documented, these options may include a Leave of Absence or reduction of course load. Students experiencing such situations during the semester should notify the Dean of Students Office, in writing, no later than the commencement of the exam period for the semester or session in which the situation occurred.
3. Students who do not receive exam numbers due to outstanding financial obligations to the University should attempt to resolve the matter with the Student Accounts/Office of the Bursar. The Dean of Students Office is also available to discuss the situation with the student, but the student must contact the Dean of Students Office prior to the commencement of the exam period. Examinations will not be rescheduled to allow a student to resolve a financial obligation to the University.
