EXEMPTIONS FROM SEMESTER EXAMS: General Information

  • Students are expected to be in attendance on the days they are scheduled for an exam.   If a student is absent and must miss taking an exam, the student must schedule a make-up exam with the teacher. A grade of 1 will be placed in the grade book pending make-up of that exam. (Make-up exams need to be completed by January 18th before class rank is recalculated for juniors and seniors.)
  • The second semester courses shall not be the same courses exempted the first semester.
  • For exemption purposes only, three tardies count as an absence in all classes no matter where they occur across the schedule.
  • All obligations must be cleared before students are eligible for exemptions. (parking violations, library fees, textbooks, etc.)
  • Students must have an overall average of 85 for the first three marking periods.  [(MP1+MP2+MP3)/3≥85]
  • Return textbooks to the Textbook Coordinator (Room 1400) and have the coordinator sign your exemption form. Exemption forms must be signed by the textbook coordinator whether you have books to return or not.
