Work closely and proactively with your faculty and your residential college deans if you expect you will need an extension on in-term or end-of-term work. The Undergraduate Announcement outlines policies and resources on all academic regulations for student work and attendance during the academic year. Extensions Work Due during the Term Faculty may grant extensions on any work due during the semester. Late penalties may apply. For midterm exams (unlike final exams), Princeton has no formal rescheduling policy. You’ll need to talk with your professors individually in the relevant classes to see if one of them would allow you to take the exam at an alternate time to avoid overcrowding. If you need additional help, please reach out to your assistant dean for studies. End-of-Term Work Faculty may grant extensions of up to 24 hours on end-of-term work due on dean's date and on take-home examinations. Extensions longer than 24 hours will require the additional approval of your residential college dean or assistant dean for studies. Exams Students with final exam conflicts or crowded exam schedules should request an adjustment to their final exam schedule well in advance of exam period, in accordance with the policy set forth by the Registrar. Last-minute postponements of scheduled final examinations are granted by the Registrar’s office alone (see above) and only in cases of severe illness. Rescheduling Exams All students are expected to take midterm exams at the time and date specified by the instructor. If, however, for a good and sufficient reason you are unable to take a midterm exam as scheduled, please discuss the problem in advance with your course instructor. Your residential college dean or assistant dean for studies may also be able to help you work with the course instructor to reschedule the examination. All in-class final exams are scheduled by the Office of the Registrar during the final examination period at the end of each semester. Exams must be taken at the assigned times, so you should be prepared to be available throughout the examination period and should not schedule personal travel until the examination schedule has been published. You can view your final exam schedule in TigerHub at the beginning of the sixth full week of classes. The deputy registrar may authorize a student to take a final exam up to 24 hours before or after the scheduled time. Appropriate reasons for granting such requests are religious days, personal emergencies and more than one exam scheduled in a single calendar day. Exams will normally be rescheduled during the 24 hours after the scheduled examination time. Course instructors are not allowed to approve the rescheduling of final exams. For more information, see the Registrar's webpage on final examination policies. Rescheduling when Multiple Final Exams Fall on the Same Day The University’s policy is that a student who has two exams on the same day may postpone one exam to the following day. In order to arrange for such rescheduling, you must apply to the Office of the Registrar in the week before final exams begin. For more information, see the Registrar's webpage on final examination policies. If you have a conflict involving a take-home exam, please see your dean or assistant dean for studies. Missing a Final Exam due to Illness Exams that have been completed cannot be retroactively annulled due to illness. This means that if you begin a scheduled final exam, you will–except in the rarest of circumstances–be held accountable for taking the exam and will be assigned a grade based on the work completed on it. If your condition is so serious that it requires urgent medical attention and continuing the exam is not an option, then you must report immediately to University Health Services and notify the deputy registrar, as well as your residential college dean or assistant dean for studies. Missing a Final Exam because You Overslept If you miss a scheduled final exam by mistake (because you overslept, for instance), you must report immediately to your residential college dean or assistant dean for studies. If you discover your problem after hours on weekdays or any time during the weekend, leave a voice message for your dean or assistant dean for studies and call the deputy registrar immediately at 609-258-7242. Once during your career at Princeton you may be allowed to make up a missed exam at the next available time slot, under the following conditions: You have reported the missed exam within 24 hours; You have never missed a scheduled exam before; You are making satisfactory progress in the course; and There is no evidence that you were seeking to gain additional study time. That being said, it’s wiser to try to ensure that you never find yourself in such a situation.
