Summer 2006 Exams.
The final exams
for the Summer term are listed in the Schedule of Classes
. You will be notified of the classroom assignments
for your exams prior to the start of exam period.
Exam Reschedule Requests.
Student Handbook requires that you take your final exams
at the times scheduled unless you have an exam conflict
(as defined below), or you have a "serious illness
or other extraordinary or compelling reason" beyond
your control. If you have an exam conflict or believe
you have other reasons justifying the rescheduling of
an exam, please contact Amanda Kastern (firstname.lastname@example.org)
no later than Tuesday, July 11, 2006.
Under the new policy adopted by the faculty in December,
a student is deemed to have an "exam conflict"
if the student has two exams at the same time, or has
two or more exams within 24 hours (e.g., exams at 8:30
a.m. and 6:00 p.m., or at 6:00 p.m. and 1:15 the following
afternoon). A conflict does not exist if two exams are
scheduled exactly 24 hours apart (e.g., exams at 8:30
a.m. one morning and 8:30 a.m. the next morning).
Exams on Computer Sign-up.
Many professors allow students to take their exams on
computer (either lab computers or students' own laptops,
or both). Registration for taking exams on computer will
begin on Thursday, July 6 and will end on Wednesday, July
12. To register beginning July 6, log into your Webmail
account, click on the Web for Students icon, and navigate
to the appropriate form.
