Final Examinations and Final Grades in Courses

Final Examinations and Final Grades in Courses

Legislative History:

Approved by Senate: January 22, 1998

Approval Authority: Senate

Signature: Harriet Lewis


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.
