Final Examinations and Final Grades in Courses
Approval Authority: Senate, January 22, 1998
Signature “Harriet Lewis” Secretary of Senate
With the exception of courses explicitly required for certification by a professional body, or other exceptions agreed to by Senate, students pass or fail a course on the basis of their final course average, without the additional requirement of having to obtain a passing grade on a final examination.
This policy does not exclude the possibility of a final examination representing more than 50% of the final grade in a particular course or the requirement that a student pass a specific course lab component.
