Absence from final exam policy


Generally, students who fail to take final examinations in any course will automatically be assigned an F grade.


Student who because of verified illness and/or a crisis emergency and who notify the engineering office of the circumstances within 48 hours of the exam may be given an X grade and an extension to retake the examination. X grades are given only through the dean's office and only if the student's prior course performance merits this extra consideration.

Generally, students who have failed to complete a small but important course assignment would find this deficiency reflected in a lower grade assignment in the course.


Students who obtain prior instructor permission and who merit the opportunity to make up the deficiency because of the circumstances causing the deficiency may be assigned an I incomplete grade.

All temporary grades must be removed by the calendar dates specified in the Undergraduate Bulletin or they shall revert to F grades.
