Examinations Coordinated by the Office of the Registrar
The period for final examinations each semester is established as part of the College calendar. All examinations are conducted under the Honor Code, and the time allotted for scheduled or self-scheduled final examinations, when given, is three hours. Scheduled and self-scheduled examinations are administered by the Office of the Registrar, and may not be taken by any student before the start of the examination period, or after the end of the examination period unless the student has received a temporary grade of Incomplete.
Students are permitted to schedule their own examinations during the examination period. In courses for which there is a pedagogical need to have a single examination period, instructors shall preschedule their examinations through the Office of the Registrar. A list of prescheduled examinations will be published by the Office of the Registrar prior to the start of the examination period. To ensure the integrity of the Honor Code, any student who has completed or is in the process of completing any examination is forbidden to divulge the content or level of difficulty of that examination to anyone before the end of the examination period.
A student who has submitted the appropriate documentation to the Office of Accessibility Services may take the examination at the Academic Resource Center. A student who, because of emergency or illness, is unable to complete an examination must submit an official request for a temporary grade of Incomplete by the end of the examination period. Students who have been approved for an Incomplete may arrange to take their examination in one of three ways: on-campus with the instructor, on-campus through the Office of the Registrar, or mailed home by the instructor or department.
