Students of the School of Arts and Sciences should refer to the General Section of the Student Manual for additional information about “University Examination Policies and Procedures.”


All matriculated students are expected to attend all assigned academic activities for each course currently registered. Medical excuses will be based on self-reporting by students to the Dean of Students Office via the online online SAS Medical Excuse link..

Students who feel they are too sick to take an examination or other required activity on a specific day, must submit the online SAS medical excuse, which is available on SGU Portal. Students are only allowed a total of two such excuses in tow consecutive semesters. Consult with the Director of University Health Service, and a medical leave of absence may be mandated.

The policies regarding Make-Up Examinations are at the option of the Course Instructor/Director.
