Course examinations are given at the instructor’s discretion.  Final examinations are given only during the scheduled examination period (16th week).  If applicable, there will be exams during the 7th week and/or 12th week.  If the candidate is absent with an acceptable excuse from a final exam and wants a credit for the course, after the instructor and candidate have conferred, the candidate must complete a special exam before the end of the semester immediately following his/her absence.
