Examinations for Failure Elimination

Under extraordinary circumstances a special exam for the removal of a failing grade may be given. Such examinations are graded no higher than a D, and this, if obtained, is the final grade for the course. Written approval of the head of the department, the appropriate dean of the college in which the course is offered, and the appropriate dean of the student's college is necessary.
