UA makes final exam arrangements, announces commencement

From the University of Alabama 

TUSCALOOSA, AL - Normal operations are suspended as recovery efforts continue. The University will not conduct final exams next week as scheduled.

Students will have the option of accepting their existing grades as of April 27, 2011, or they can take a final exam at a later date.

For those students who request to take a final exam, faculty will have the option of scheduling the final exam on site when normal operations resume or via distance education means.

This schedule change includes all enrolled students except those in the School of Law and School of Medicine. Their academic calendars vary and they should be in touch with their faculty for confirmation of their exam schedule.

Faculty should communicate with their students via e-learning or their normal means as facilities are restored. Students should know that not all faculty will have communication capabilities immediately.

Commencement exercises scheduled for May 7, 2011, have been rescheduled for Aug. 6, 2011, when May and August graduates will be recognized.

These steps are being taken to allow students impacted by the storms to return to their homes while recovery efforts continue in the Tuscaloosa area.

These changes are in keeping with academic guidelines that are part of the emergency operations and recovery plans for the campus.
