What to do if: You Inadvertantly Missed an Exam
If you miss a scheduled final exam by mistake (you slept through it or misread the schedule, for instance), you must report IMMEDIATELY (and definitely no later than 24 HOURS after the correctly scheduled time) to your residential college dean or director of studies. If you discover your problem after-hours on weekdays or any time during the weekend, email Dean Herschbach AND call Sally Gonzalez, the Deputy Registrar, at once at 8-7242. ONCE during your career at Princeton you MIGHT be allowed to make up an inadvertently missed exam at the next available 3-hour time slot, under certain conditions, including the following: 1) you have reported the missed exam immediately; 2) you have never missed a scheduled exam before; 3) you are making satisfactory progress in the course; 4) there is no evidence that you are seeking to gain advantage. A contract must be signed and attached to the exam, and is subject to approval of the instructor. Taking advantage of this exception dishonestly will be viewed as an academic integrity violation by the Committee on Discipline.
