• Examination Procedures
    Faculty may schedule midterm and final examinations through the Registrar’s Office. This office administers examinations and provides proctors. Faculty do not need to be present during the examinations, but the Registrar’s Office should have a contact number so that they can contact the faculty member during the exam if any questions arise.
  • Examination Requests
    The Registrar’s Office will send you a link at the beginning of the semester to request midterm exam assistance and at the end of the semester for final exam information.
    Be sure to provide information as to examination type, length, and whether the examination is open or closed book. For space/time planning, an examination form must be completed even if the plan is not to give an examination in the class. The form is located at:
