Performance is evaluated by examination (written or oral) or by term or other work. The form of evaluation is at the discretion of the Department offering the course. The regular periods for written final examinations are:
- Fall/Winter Session--December & April/May
- Summer Evening--July
- Summer Day--mid-August
For final examinations in first-term half-courses, the mid-year examination period is at the end of first-term classes. Departments may also schedule term tests in full courses in this period, subject to the priority in scheduling granted for final examinations in half-courses.
Comprehensive examinations are required in some honors programs at the end of the final year. They may be written or oral, or a combination, and are in addition to examinations in the courses of the programs.
A student is entitled to be examined in courses in which registration is maintained, subject to the following limitations:
- A student may be debarred from writing the final examination for failure to maintain satisfactory academic standing throughout the year.
- Any student who, in the opinion of the instructor, is absent too frequently from class or laboratory periods in any course, will be reported to the Dean of the Faculty offering the course (after due warning has been given). On the recommendation of the department concerned, and with the permission of the Dean of that Faculty, the student will be debarred from taking the regular examination in the course. The Dean of the Faculty offering the course will communicate that decision to the Dean of the Faculty of Registration.
Failure to Appear at an Examination
Students who fail to appear for an examination at the time set in the timetable will not be allowed to write the examination they missed. Students missing an exam must report it immediately to the office of their Dean. Students may, with the approval of the relevant Department Chair, petition their Dean for permission to write a Special Examination.
