Course Extensions & Final Exams

Course Extensions

Students are provided nine weeks to complete their coursework. In the event that an extension is needed, the student should email to request the extension, providing the reason and the amount of time needed.

Extensions will only be granted if:

1) More than half of the coursework is complete.
2) The student has not gone more than a month without completing an assignment/lesson.
3) The student has experienced a significant life event or medical emergency (this should be detailed in the extension request email)

Final Exams

Final exams for each course must be passed (60% or better) in order to receive credit for that course. The final exam grade does NOT count as the course grade; rather, when the student passes the final exam the course grade will be calculated as a combination of course assignments, quizzes, module tests, and the final exam.

When students reach the end of their course lessons, they will receive approval from their instructor to take the final exam. Students must be cleared by their instructor in order to take a final exam.

Once ready for the exam, students will need to schedule time at a testing location in order to take the final exam in person. All final exams must be taken in person, under the supervision of a certified proctor. Students should bring photo ID to their testing session (a school ID or drivers license, for example).

Full-time Global Academy students will test in the Global Academy testing center, located in the portables in the south parking lot of Mesquite High School (500 S. McQueen in Gilbert). During the school year, students attending a Gilbert school may schedule final exam testing at their own school sites. Global Academy may also be used, if needed.

The Global Academy testing center is open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 1:00 pm to 3:30 pm. School site testing schedules vary.

To schedule a final exam, students will follow the link found within the "Announcements" section of Buzz.
