Make-Up Exam Service

Testing Services – Student Support Services, Bietz Center for Student Life
In the event that a student is unable to complete an exam during regularly scheduled classroom time, The Testing Services Office provides a Make-Up Exam service to all University instructors.  This is only to be used in the case of excused absences due to genuine medical or family emergencies. This service is not for students who miss their regularly scheduled exams by choice or error, leave early for the weekend, or have multiple exams scheduled at the same time, or for any other reason. While the validity of an excuse is at the discretion of the professor, we ask that this condition be honored so we can accommodate the requests we receive in a timely manner.   
To request the Make-Up Exam service, please use this form.
