Exam Administration

Integrity is central to the mission of Villanova University.  The Faculty of the College of Engineering is committed to creating an environment of academic integrity and ethical decision-making.  To encourage an atmosphere of honesty, integrity and fairness for all students, the following exam procedures are in place:

  • Students must arrive before the start of the exam.  Under exceptional circumstances, at the discretion of the professor, a student may need to arrive late, but he/she can enter the exam no later than 5 minutes after the start of the exam.
  • All communication devices (e.g. cell phones, smart watches, etc) must be turned off and stored away until the student exits the exam room.
  • The official Villanova class attendance policy must be followed when requesting excuses for absences or lateness to an exam.
  • Each student must write and sign the following statement, “I have neither given nor received any unauthorized assistance in the completion of this exam.”
