1. Seniors are eligible for exemptions from all semester exams in both the fall and spring semesters.  Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors (see below) are eligible for exemptions in the spring semester only.

  • Freshmen – 1 exemption
  • Sophomores – 2 exemptions
  • Juniors – 2 exemptions

 

2. If a student has been in ISS, OSS, GAP, or has been caught cutting class, they are not allowed to exempt any finals for that semester.

3. For students who are eligible for exemptions, we will need to follow the sliding scale below:

90%+ overall grade in the course with no more than 3 absences

OR

85 – 89% overall grade in the course with no more than 2 absences

OR

80 – 84% overall grade in the course with no more than 1 absences

4.  With respect to the absences with the sliding scale, all excused and unexcused absences “count” with the ONLY exceptions being:

  • NSH (nurse sent home)
  • UIL
  • ACT (school activity)
  • REL (religious holiday)
  • COL (college visit)
  • TST (test)
