Division of Graduate Medical Sciences Policy
Course examinations are given at the discretion of the course manager. Final examinations are generally administered in conjunction with the schedule published by the University Registrar’s office.
A student who is unable to attend an examination should contact the course manager as early as possible prior to the examination to discuss whether alternate arrangements can be made or if the student will fail the exam. A student who is absent from an examination may request a make-up examination only if the examination was missed for a serious reason (such as illness or family emergency). A student may be required to provide proof of the circumstances, such as a note from a physician. Special or make-up examinations will not be scheduled to accommodate a student’s personal travel plans.
