Q: If I do have an emergency during finals week, what help is available?
A:The Dean’s Office, Counseling Center, Pensby Center and more are all open through the end of finals week, and we encourage you to make use of these as needed.
Q: What is the policy on extensions at the end of the semester?
A: In Bryn Mawr courses, an extension beyond the semester's deadline for written work (the last day of classes)and into finals requires the permission of both your professor and your dean. Normally, your dean will support an extension only if our situation results from circumstances beyond your control, such as illness or family or personal emergency, or some other circumstance beyond your control. In the absence of these circumstances, your dean might still support an extension but would recommend that the professor impose a grade penalty.
In Haverford courses, professors have the ability to approve these short-term extensions without a dean's authorization; however, they have the option of getting your dean's input. Contact your professor and follow instructions.
Extensions beyond the end of finals are very rare and at both campuses require the permission of both dean and professor. In the case of serious illness or some other emergency that arises during the finals period itself, you should contact your professor and your dean as soon as possible. As necessary, your dean will make every effort to confer with your faculty member.
