The College has set aside the week before final examinations in both the Spring and Fall Terms as a special time to review academic work and prepare for final examinations. It is designated as PREPARATION WEEK.
As of 8:00 a.m. on the 1st day of Preparation Week no tests other than lab exams may be given. No papers or other class work can be made due unless it was assigned on the syllabus in the first week of the term. Total class activity during prep week may not consume more than a class’s typical weekly allotment of time.
As of 8:00 a.m. the 4th day of Preparation Week and continuing through exam week, no college-sponsored or affiliated groups may hold meetings or programs that involve students and/or require student attendance. The Honor Court or Conduct Review Committee acting on official business may meet at this time. On the Saturday of Preparation Week, from 6:00 p.m. to 12:00 midnight, there will be suspension of these requirements allowing students and their organizations opportunities for recreational activities. At midnight, Preparation Week requirements resume and continue through exam week. The Student Services Committee may consider petitions for exceptions to policies governing Preparation Week.
