For most courses at least one exam is required each semester. Students should read the information about exams found in the Student Handbook (at the beginning of the instructional guide), the course introduction, or the lesson in the instructional guide that precedes the exam.
All exams must be supervised by a school or community official, such as a teacher, librarian, registrar or pastor, who is not related to the student. The student must state clearly on the exam request form the professional status, job title or any other qualifications of the supervisor that will aid the testing department in the approval process.
If a student is enrolled in another school while taking college courses, the exam should be taken under the direction of that school’s registrar or testing department.
An exam cannot be sent to a supervisor who has the same address as the student unless the address is known to be that of a school, mission facility, etc.
In order for an exam grade to be recorded, a signed Supervisor’s Signature Form must accompany the exam being returned. GU will notify the student of exam results, but no graded exam will be returned to the student or to the supervisor.
All college students must present photo identification to their supervisors before taking exams unless the examiner personally knows the student being tested.
