A student who has failed a course may be entitled to write a supplemental form of evaluation to obtain credit for the course if the student meets the requirements set out below. Normally, a supplemental will take the form of an examination; however, it is within the instructor's discretion to select another comparable form of supplemental evaluation if the nature of the course requires it.
A student who receives an F in only one course, and whose overall weighted average for the year (excluding the F) is C or higher, is entitled to write a supplemental examination in the failed course if the F was not, in whole or in part, received because of either the commission of an academic offence or the student's lack of regular attendance or participation in required exercises.
A student who is entitled to write a supplemental examination but does not do so will receive an F for the examination and the course.
A student must obtain a minimum of C on a supplemental examination to pass and thereby obtain credit for the course. If the student obtains a C or better on a supplemental examination, the original failed grade remains on the transcript, but with a notation that the course has been "passed by supplemental".
Supplemental examinations and special examinations (i.e., examinations given for medical or compassionate reasons) generally will be scheduled in June of each academic year.
