In accordance with department policy and the Privacy Act of 1974, the following procedures are followed:
Examinations and Make-Ups
Whether or not written final examinations or papers are required in any given course is left to the discretion of the instructor, as is the type of examination given (e.g., closed or open book; take-home; or classroom). In-class final examinations will be held at the time designated by the Registrar. Optional exam times may be arranged at the discretion of the instructor. If a make-up examination (either before or after the scheduled examination) is authorized by the instructor, students should expect the following:
All students should be informed as soon as possible in the semester whether written examinations or papers will be required in their courses.
Examinations, Term Papers & Other Written Course Work
Under no circumstances will grades, papers or exams be distributed by the Department Office Staff. Because of privacy legislation, nothing of a confidential nature can be left in a public area for pick-up. Students may request notification from their instructor of final course grades and the return of papers and examinations by leaving a self-addressed, stamped envelope with the instructor. If no arrangements are made, written work is retained at the discretion of the instructor, but usually for not more than one or two semesters. In any case, the student is entitled to consult with the instructor regarding any such work, but the consultation should be scheduled in a timely fashion if it is after the end of the semester.
