2015-2016 Undergraduate Catalog

Final Examinations

Final examinations are held during specified days at the close of each semester. Each course must terminate with a final assignment that measures comprehension of the material and mastery of skills. The timetable for these tests is published in the Cumberland University Register distributed each term. Attendance at all scheduled and announced final examinations is required. Unauthorized absence from an examination may result in a grade of “F” (failure) on the examination and/or the course. Excuses for authorized absences from final examinations must be obtained in writing from the Vice President for Academic Affairs. Travel plans do not constitute sufficient reason to request a change in the examination schedule.
