4.7 Take-Home Examinations

Take-home exams may be taken on any day during the applicable take-home exam period. Take-home exams typically must be completed within eight hours (inclusive of travel time, breaks, meals, etc.), unless otherwise stipulated in the exam itself or on the exam schedule. Students are strongly advised to take exams during regular business hours, as there is typically no technical support available between 5:00 p.m. and 8:30 a.m.  

On the final day of the take-home exam period, all take-home exams must be completed by 5:00 p.m., unless otherwise stated in the online exam schedule.  The 5:00 p.m. deadline means that students with 8-hour take-home exams must begin by 9:00 a.m. in order to take advantage of the full eight hours to complete the exam. 

Students may not discuss the exam or share exam questions with any other person until after the end of the exam period. Questions or concerns should be directed to the Registrar or Dean of Students.

Exam submission deadlines are rigorously enforced, and faculty members are notified of late submissions.
