Examinations may be rescheduled only for the following reasons:
- A student is unable to take the regularly scheduled examination because of illness or other extraordinary personal or business reasons;
- The examination is scheduled on the same day as another examination to be taken by the student;
- The examination schedule requires the student to sit for three examinations in a consecutive three-day period;
- There is extraordinary and unavoidable client or other professional commitments which make it impossible to sit for the examination at the scheduled time.
Examinations scheduled on two consecutive days or failure to adequately prepare for an examination, absent other reasons meeting the above criteria, are not reasons which warrant rescheduling.
A request to reschedule an examination must be submitted to the Director on the form provided for that purpose. Decisions concerning requests for rescheduled examinations are made by the Director.
Examinations are not rescheduled for a time earlier than the regularly scheduled sitting.
Any student who fails to take an examination on the scheduled date and who has not received prior authorization for rescheduling as provided above, will not be permitted to take the examination at a later date. As a result, the student may receive “F” grade in the course.
In certain courses a research paper, an oral presentation, or other alternative basis for determining grades may be used by the instructor in lieu of a regular final examination. The deadline for completing and submitting all such work is no later than the last day of regularly scheduled final examinations for the semester involved. A failure to submit required alternate material by that date will be treated as a failure to take an examination.
Knowingly misrepresenting the facts in support of a request for examination rescheduling is deemed unauthorized conduct providing an improper academic advantage.
