Final exams assure that students are provided optimal learning experiences while earning a terminal degree and/or transferable credit. A final examination or alternative assessment is required for each course at the close of the term. Alternative assessments include, but are not limited to final projects, papers, essays, discussions, presentation, etc. Final exams are administered during the regularly scheduled final exam session based on the schedule issued each term by the Instructional Officers and any deviations from the published schedule must be approved by the appropriate Instructional Officer. Final examinations must be comprehensive in nature and should count for no less than 20 percent or more than 30 percent of the final average. No student exemptions are permitted.
