Become familiar with all policies that affect you at the Summer School by reading Student Responsibilities and Regulations.

Exams

Many courses have final exams during the last week of Summer School. In online courses with final exams, instructors may give an online exam or a timed and proctored exam.

Check your course website or syllabus for exam details. You can find the date and time of your exam in the exam schedule. Call Academic Services, (617) 495-0977, if you have a schedule conflict with your exam or have questions about exam policies.

Grades

Grades are assigned to students who register in courses at the undergraduate and graduate level. Grades for study abroad programs are generally available one week after the program’s official end dates. See the calendar for information about when grades will be available, then view your grades in online services.
