Examination Policies and Procedures for Students

The first responsibility of the student is to work with their faculty member if they are interested in taking exams in the Gervais Learning Center.  If the decision is made to use the Learning Center facilities for exams, then the student needs to meet with a Learning Center staff member to discuss those procedures.
