A student with fourth-year standing can apply for a special exam if all the following apply:

  • the student has failed the course three times
  • the course is required for the student’s degree program
  • there is no other option to fulfill the degree requirement

To apply for a special exam, the student must submit the special exam application form to the registrar’s office. A $50 application fee applies. The application must be approved by the registrar in consultation with the student, instructor, and the relevant academic dean. 

The results of a special exam will be recorded as “pass” or “fail” unless otherwise decided by the registrar.
