The Department of Languages and Literatures authorizes make-up examinations only for documented reasons involving personal medical or family emergencies or due to participation in College team sports or legitimate academic events (e.g., Model United Nations, scholarly conferences). If such documentation is provided, it is up to the instructor’s discretion to grant a make-up exam or to excuse the student from taking the exam without penalty. If a make-up exam is approved by the instructor, its content may significantly differ in format from the scheduled exam. If the student’s performance in the course up to the date of the missed exam makes it impossible to pass the course, even if taking a make-up and scoring 100%, no make-up or special arrangements will be offered.
The Department considers make-up exams a privilege, not a right.
