Note that when an excused absence involves a missed final exam or final project, a petition is required to change the “O” grade that the student will receive for that subject to a grade of “OX.” The student and the department academic administrator will be notified when an O is changed to an OX. An OX carries no credit for the subject. However, the responsible faculty member must provide the student the opportunity to receive a credit-carrying grade. This may be done with or without the instructor requiring a make-up final examination or other additional evaluation procedure. The work is to be completed before Add Date of the succeeding term of the regular academic year; however, the responsible faculty member, in discussion with the student, has the right to set an earlier or later date for pedagogical reasons or extenuating circumstances.
