Final Exams

Regular course examinations are held during the last week of each semester at the times indicated in the semester class schedule. Summer Session examinations are usually held at the last class meeting. Students are responsible for knowing the time and location of each examination. Early examinations are not permitted.

Permission to be absent from the final examination is given by the instructor only for causes beyond the student’s control. Normally, such permission must be secured in advance of the date of the examination. Any deficiency must be made up before the end of the next semester in which the student is in residence in any school of Northwestern, or within one year after the course was offered if not in residence, or credit is forfeited.

Final exam conflicts will be resolved on an individual basis. It is the responsibility of the student to inform Student Records no later than the end of week eight that a conflict will exist.
