8.1 General

(Amended 8/9/19; 3/3/20; 7/27/23)

Effective March 3, 2020, and July 27, 2023, this policy has been revised. For individual changes, see the redlined version

Each college within the University is free to establish its own rules and regulations concerning absences from class. However, University regulations require that students be allowed to make up examinations which have been missed due to illness, religious holy days, military service obligations, including service-related medical appointments, jury duty, or other unavoidable circumstances or other University-sponsored activities. Students should work with faculty regarding making up other missed work, such as assignments, quizzes, and classroom attendance.

Policies regarding conflicts between examinations scheduled outside of class, regularly scheduled exams, and regularly scheduled courses are described in the current Schedule of Courses.
