Out-of-sequence examinations may NOT be scheduled before the date of the final examination. Please see below for other rules and restrictions.
Out-of-Sequence Examination Policy
All students must take examinations when and where they are scheduled. Students must plan to be in residence during the entire exam period. No exam may be taken before the scheduled date for the exam. Professors do not have discretion to individually override this policy. A student may request permission to take an examination out-of-sequence for the following reasons:
- The student has two (2) in-class examinations scheduled on the same calendar day, or
- The student has one (1) in-class examination and one (1) 24-hour take home examination scheduled on the same calendar day, or
- The student has two (2) 24-hour take home examinations scheduled on the same calendar day, or
- The student has three (3) in-class examinations scheduled on three (3) consecutive calendar days, or
- The student has two (2) in-class examinations and one (1) 24-hour take home examination scheduled on three consecutive calendar days, or
- The student has one (1) in-class examination and two (2) 24-hour take-home examinations scheduled on three consecutive calendar days.
FOR ALL OTHER REASONS BELOW: Please submit a general petition to Dean Vigil in Student Affairs
- The student has serious medical reasons verified in writing by appropriate medical personnel, or
- The student has a personal emergency supported by documentation.
Examinations Rescheduled for Reasons One (1) and Two (2) Above:
Students who seek to change an examination time for reasons one (1) and two (2) above must seek permission from the Registrar. Examinations rescheduled for reasons one (1) or two (2) must be completed during the scheduled examination period.
Examinations Rescheduled for Reasons Three (3) and Four (4) Above:
Students who seek to change an examination time for reason three (3) or four (4) above must seek permission from the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. Personal emergencies do not include work-related responsibilities, but rather contemplate such events as deaths in the family, or emergency medical situations that involve family dependents. A student who seeks a rescheduled examination for reasons three (3) and four (4) must file an Out of Sequence Exam Request with the Associate Dean as soon as the medical situation arises or as soon as the student discovers the personal emergency. Students may petition via a “General Request Form” at http://www.law.du.edu/registrar and in the office of the Associate Dean. Students granted permission to reschedule an examination for reasons three (3) and (4) must complete the examination as soon as possible and preferably within the normal examination period for the particular semester. In no event may an a student reschedule an examination after the beginning of the next semester.
Take Home Examinations/Papers:
All requests for extensions of time in which to submit extended take-home examinations or papers should be submitted to the Registrar’s Office. Timed online take-home examinations may not be rescheduled unless the student has a medical or family emergency. Students must submit a request at least one day in advance of the due date of the take-home examination. Failure to make such requests and also to notify the Registrar’s office of such timely requests will result in point penalties or failure at the discretion of the course professor.
Additional Time for ESL International Students:
Please be considerate of others This includes activity in and out of the exam rooms. Please remember that others may not have finished the exam if you leave early and that there are other exams in other classrooms if you are talking in the hallways. The study rooms on the second and third floors of the law school are used for special exams so please keep noise to a minimum there as well. You may use study rooms for take-home exams or studying, but registrar’s staff may ask you to move if we need the room. Room 145 is reserved for take-home exam takers who wish to stay on campus. During this exam period, there will be technicians in some of the rooms upgrading the podium equipment. You can study in these rooms but there may be noise associated with the upgrade.
Know the location and time of your exam. Exams aren’t held at the same time as classes, on the same days or in the same rooms. Check the information on the exam schedule at the link included above. Any emergency location changes will be updated on the schedule and notification will be sent via your DU email.
Know what you can bring to an exam. Check to make sure you know if your exam is open or closed book and what items you may have with you in the exam. You can bring water or a snack but be sure not to make noise that would disturb others. Do not bring electronic devices with you such as iPods with headphones, and silence your cell phones before the exam. You may leave to use the restroom but please do not take anything with you and don’t bring back any items.
Please be ready for your exam. Download the software ahead of time (http://www.exam4.com), do a practice test and be in the exam room 5 minutes early so everyone can get started on time. Make sure you bring your power cord and that your computer is working correctly. If your professor requires a word count, that will be explained at the beginning of the exam. If you’re taking an online exam, take the “trial” exam that is sent to you in your email so you know how to use the software. If you have an emergency, again, contact the Registrar’s Office. Know the due date of your take-home exams and when/how you can submit them. Registrar’s Office hours are posted on the exam website as well as on the front door.
Notify the Registrar’s Office if you have an issue. We can’t assist if we don’t know there is a problem. If you become ill, let us know. We cannot stop an exam and restart it on a different day. Staff will state at the beginning of each exam that if you have a problem with your computer, please let us know immediately. We want you to have the full time for your exam but we can’t help you if you report issues after you’ve submitted your exam answer.
Use your exam number, select the correct course/professor, turn in your exam questions and make sure you submit. Staff will walk you through the stat up process at the beginning of the exam. Make sure you use your Exam ID and NOT your student ID. Write your Exam ID on anything you submit including the exam questions. MAKE SURE YOU RETURN YOUR EXAM QUESTIONS. Professors require that you return the questions before they’ll grade your exam. If you’re using Exam4 software, make sure you select the proper class name/professor so we can find your exam. Sometimes submitting an exam takes a few extra seconds. It may take up to a couple minutes if you are using a Mac. We recommend Ethernet cords for the best connections. If the exam doesn’t submit immediately, wait a few seconds and submit again. If you continue to have issues, turn in your exam questions to your proctor and come to the Registrar’s Office.
