Examinations are given at any time during the course at the instructor’s discretion, at mid-semester, and at the conclusion of the semester. If a student misses any exam prior to the final exam beause of circumstances beyond his or her control, with the instructor’s permission, the student can make arrangements through the College of Professional and Continuing Studies Office to take a special exam.
Special examinations submitted by the instructor can be taken by appointment in the College of Professional and Continuing Studies Office while classes are in session. Students must call 215.951.1234 to verify that a make-up exam is on file and to schedule the appointment.
Final examinations are conducted at the times published in the examination schedule issued each semester. If a student is unable to take a final exam as scheduled because of an unavoidable absence, he or she must request approval for a special final exam from the instructor. If approval is granted, the student must make arrangements through the College of Professional and Continuing Studies Office to take a special final exam submitted by the instructor. Regular make-up examinations are subject to a $5 fee; final make-up examinations are subject to a $10 fee.
Nursing students must make special arrangements for examinations with the Nursing course instructor.
