FINAL EXAMS SCHEDULING EXCEPTIONS POLICY
Note: Practical exams must be taken as scheduled. If you have an emergency arise on the day of a practical, please still contact your instructor immediately.
The policy for final exam scheduling exceptions is as follows:
1. If you have overlapping finals, or qualify for extended testing time and have back to back finals, please see your instructor(s) to arrange appropriate delayed or early start times for the same day your finals are scheduled.You will test in Room 11 as-needed (please note available times).
2. If you miss a final due to a verifiable emergency circumstance, the make up arrangements vary based on the severity of the situation. Please contact your instructor(s) immediately.
- You must make up your final(s) the day you return to campus, unless there is a justifiable reason for you not to (e.g. more than three finals to make up, a concussion).
- Appropriate documentation of the emergency circumstance must be provided on/by the day you return to campus for an exception to be granted.
3. If you miss a final or are more than 15 minutes late to a final and do not have a justifiable emergency situation, you will likely not be allowed to make up the exam.Please still contact your instructor immediately, as decisions regarding these circumstances are made on a case-by-case basis.
4. Bel-Rea does not offer alternative final exam times/dates for students with normal travel circumstances. The academic calendar is available 2-3 years ahead of time. Please schedule all trips accordingly.
5. Students with a “once in a lifetime” opportunities that overlap with finals week can submit a formal petition for Bel-Rea’s Appeals and Readmission Board to consider.
- Examples: Major life events for close family members that cannot be shifted (e.g. sister’s wedding, son’s graduation) or unusual opportunities with a specific schedule that are not available at another time (e.g. serving on a veterinary spay/neuter service trip to a foreign country).
- Petitions should be submitted as early as possible, even if it is a quarter or two ahead of time, as there is no guarantee a final exam scheduling exception will be granted.Last minute petition submissions will not be accepted.
- How to petition: Submit a Final Exams Scheduling Exception Petition Form (available from the Registrar) and required supporting information to the Registrar.
- Students will be notified via email by the Registrar of the Appeals and Readmission Board’s decision (typically within 3-5 business days).
