by Curry Lin Midterm exams are coming next week (4/26-4/30). To achieve great academic performance, students should prepare and study hard for the exams. Students can get their exam schedules from the online Student Information System. Students may not request personal leave during the final exam week. Emergency or medical leave requests must be filed with the Students Affairs Division. A doctor’s certificate or hospital diagnostic report is required to have medical leave approved. The Student Handbook describes the grading penalties for missing midterm exams.
