I. Policy Statement
Reason for Policy
Because Fort Lewis College only has a 14-week instructional period in the Fall and Spring semesters, it must schedule class meetings during a final examination week each of those terms to meet the federal requirements for a 30-week academic year as set forth in 34 CFR 668.3. This policy seeks to clarify for faculty their institutional responsibility to meet their classes during final exam week and for students their obligations to attend those meetings.
