Semester Exam Policies
- Students may drop classes with instructor permission up to five days prior to the
beginning of finals.
- During the regular semesters, the three class days prior to the beginning of finals
are considered "dead days" in that no graded assignments or activities are to be scheduled.
Extracurricular events (other than unscheduled league play-off events) and required field trips are prohibited. Attendance policies will remain in force.
- If students feel that the dead days policy is not being followed, students should
speak with the faculty. If no resolution is reached, students should contact the department
chair and ask for their help. If that route is unsuccessful, students should speak
with the dean of their college.
- Departments/Academic Units will schedule room assignments for final exams through
the office of the Vice President for Administration & Finance.
- Exams for single classes must follow the schedule.
- Multi-section exams scheduled by an instructor must have the approval of the Vice
President for Student Affairs for both time and room space. These are scheduled on
a first-come, first-serve basis.
- Multi-section exams must be approved one week before the first final exam and classes notified of the schedule.
- In case of conflict between single sections and multi-sections, the single section
takes precedence for the student's time.
- Occasionally the final exam schedule results in a student having more than three exams
on any given day. Students may seek assistance in alleviating this excessive schedule
from the Vice President for Student Affairs on the Weatherford campus or from the
Dean at the Sayre campus.
- No Early Finals. Early finals are any final given prior to 8:30 a.m. on the Monday of finals week.
(Lab finals are scheduled prior to finals week.)
- Students unable to meet the regular examination schedule will receive an "I" (Incomplete) and will have the next full semester in which they are enrolled to complete their
