Proctoring for Make-Up Exams

Students who miss exams for “serious and verifiable” reasons, as defined by College policy, may be eligible to make up those exams in the Office of Academic Services (O.A.S.). “Serious and verifiable” reasons include extended absences that are the result of a serious illness or injury, the death of a family member, or travel to represent the College in an official capacity.

Students who meet one of these requirements should first make every reasonable effort to coordinate makeups with their professors. If a mutually convenient make-up time cannot be arranged, and if the professor’s own policy permits, students may request a make-up time in the O.A.S.

Requests must be submitted by 4:30 pm at least 2 school days prior to your make-up day.  For example, requests for Monday exams should be submitted by the preceding Thursday.

Students should consult their individual schedules before completing this form.  All make-ups must be started and completed between 8:30 and 4:30, Monday – Friday.

Make-Up Exam Proctoring

All cell phones, Apple watches, Fitbits and other electronic gadgets will be collected before your exams begins and returned only after you have finished. If you have one of these devices in your possession after your exams has begun, you will be asked to leave and your professor will be notified.

Students must understand that the existence of this service does not obligate faculty members to allow for make-ups in the O.A.S. The service is just one option for faculty who elect to use it.

It is also important to remember that, due to space limitations, not all requests for make-ups can be honored and that a request for a make-up time does not guarantee a seat in the testing room.

Students who make up exams in the O.A.S. will be allotted only as much time as their classmates are given. Extended time will only be given to students whose documented disabilities make them eligible for this accommodation.
