If prior to an exam you have extenuating circumstances, such as personal illness, family illness, death in the family, etc., which have the potential to interfere with your preparation for an exam, schedule an appointment with a Dean for Student Affairs to discuss the possibility of rescheduling an exam. Permission to reschedule an exam is based on individual circumstances. It is not acceptable to reschedule an exam by only contacting the course director; prior permission must be obtained from Office of Student Affairs.
If you become ill and are not physically able to take the exam:
notify the Office of Student Affairs as soon as possible of your illness and
bring a written note from the ECU Student Health Service, Family Practice Center, ECU Outpatient Clinics or private health care provider, verifying that you were seen, and were too ill on the day of the exam to attend. The doctor’s note must be submitted to the Office of Student Affairs prior to returning to classes. Once the note is received, a time to retake the missed exam will be scheduled following discussions with a Dean for Student Affairs and the Course Director.
If a student does not follow the above process for rescheduling an exam, an unexcused absence will be issued and a zero (0) will be awarded for that exam.
