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/Timetable distributed each term. No on-campus examination will be held at any time other than the announced period without the approval of the instructor and the Dean of the appropriate school. 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.
