Exam Information

The exam dates and times are listed below. These are NOT optional dates and times!!! Everyone will take the exam on those dates and at those times. If you have a university excused conflict, you must let me know in writing AT LEAST ONE WEEK in advance, and I will set a time for a make-up. Documentation will need to be provided. Failure to provide documentation or ONE WEEK notice will result in having to take the exam at the scheduled time.

If you miss an exam due to illness, you should contact me AS SOON AS you know you will miss the exam and are able to do so. Documentation will need to be provided and must state that you are unable to attend work/school on the day of the exam. Whether you contact me or not, the make-up will be the next business day at 8 AM. If you are still ill and HAVE DOCUMENTATION stating that you are unable to attend work/school on the day of the make-up, the next make-up will be the following business day at 8 AM. You must have a medical excuse for the date of the exam and the date of every make-up you miss. The make-up exam may not be the same format as that given during the regular exam time.

All exams are closed-book. They are to be completed individually. This means no talking, sharing calculators or pens/pencils, etc., and no wandering eyes. You have been warned: do not cheat! The Academic Honesty Code is found in the Student Policy eHandbook.
