These policies are based on MUN General Regulations S.1-6. For official rulings, consult the Calendar.
In every course the course outline, method of evaluation and required prerequisites or corequisites must be made available in typewritten or computer-generated format to all students present in each class during the first week of lectures. ONE COPY must be placed in the course file in the School of Music office by the beginning of lectures.
Up-to-date jury/recital requirements must be distributed to all students in the first week of lectures (in the A semester for linked courses).
Examination papers requiring typing and duplicating must be submitted to the School of Music office at least SIX (6) working days before the examination date.
Examination papers typed by the instructor (according to acceptable format) and requiring duplication only must be submitted to the office at least TWO (2) working days before the examination date.
ONE COPY of all course outlines, examination and test papers, reading lists and project assignments must be placed in the course file in the School of Music office at the end of each semester.
Final examinations, if any, must be given in accordance with the schedule of examinations published by the Registrar.
No laboratory exams or tests totalling more than one laboratory period in length shall be given in any course in any week during the semester. Such exams must be administered in the laboratory time slot assigned for that course section. No other exams or tests totalling more than one lecture period may be given in any course in any week during the semester. Such exams must be administered in the time slot assigned for that course section.
No tests or examinations, whether in-class or take-home, may be administered or assigned during the last two weeks of the semester. This does not preclude the submission of assignments, term papers or projects commenced earlier in the term and included in the method of evaluation distributed at the beginning of the semester. Oral and laboratory exams are not included in this proscription.
No exams of any nature may be held between the last day of lectures and the start of the formal exam period in any semester.
Student recitals for credit may be scheduled at any time during the semester, including the last two weeks of classes. Recitals for credit may not be scheduled after the last day of classes unless permission has been given for a deferment on medical or other acceptable grounds, duly authenticated.
In the fall semester no more than one student ensemble performance may take place in the last seven days before the start of the examination period. In the winter semester no student ensemble performances may take place in the last seven days before the examination period. In any semester no required ensemble concerts may be scheduled after the last day of classes or during the examination period.
There shall be no concerts at which student attendance is required during the examination period or in the last seven days before the start of the examination period in any semester. Furthermore there shall be no more than one visiting artist or faculty recital at which student attendance is required in the penultimate week preceding the examination period.
