ATTENTION MTDA Students!
MTDA Fall 2016 Original Credit Semester Finals will be administered January 17-19, 2017. Final exams must be taken on one of these dates, without exception. Thursday, January 19, 2017 is the last day of Fall 2016 semester. Semester finals should be complete by 5pm on Thursday. The date of final exams cannot be changed.
Please locate your class(es): Exam Proctor Information
If your course has a YES in the proctored final column, you will need to take your exam in the presence of a local proctor. That person will have the password for your exam and any other important exam instructions.
Arranging for a proctor and time to take your exam is your responsibility. The exam time arranged by you and your proctor must take place on January 17th, 18th, or 19th. Your proctor can be a school administrator, counselor, site facilitator, or other school personnel. It may not be a parent or another student. Start this process now, as it is not something you want to leave until the last minute! Make sure you know far ahead of time who your proctor will be and the best date/time to take your exam.
If your course has a NO in the proctored final column, you may still have a semester exam for your course, but a proctor is not required. See your course page and instructor for more information.
