Policy/Procedures


Examinations will be held as published in the Class Schedule Guide and on the Registrar’s office Web site at http://www.usm.edu/registrar/exam-schedule.  No final examinations are permitted prior to the scheduled examination period.  A student who is absent from the final examination without valid reason approved by the Office of the Provost forfeits credit for the semester.

 

Students will be placed on the Dean’s List if they have earned a grade point average of 3.5 or above on a minimum academic load of 12 semester hours or more during fall or spring, nine or more during summer, provided they have no grade of D or below for the term (includes F or I).  Courses taken for pass-fail credit will not be used in computing the minimum academic load.
