Questions about exams should be directed to Academic Services, (617) 495-0977.

Quizzes, hour, and midterm exams

On-campus and distance students are expected to take their exams on time and as scheduled by their instructors. Students who are unable to take a quiz, hour exam, or midterm due to extenuating circumstances should contact their instructor immediately. Instructors have varying policies regarding make-up quizzes, hour, and midterm exams.

Take-home exams

Students who miss the deadline for a take-home exam should call their instructor immediately. The instructor may require the student to appeal for a proctored make-up exam, approve an extension-of-time (EXT) grade and write a new take-home exam, or assign the student a failing grade for the exam depending on the instructor’s policy for take-home exams.
