Examinations

Students should not obtain or provide unauthorized help on examinations. The following rules are intended to help maintain an environment where this principle is maintained:

  1. Students will not be admitted to an exam without a valid photo ID.
  2. Students must sit in their assigned seats, and must answer questions in the examination copy given to them.
  3. Electronic devices, such as mobile phones, calculators, or PDAs are not allowed in the examination.
  4. Bags, backpacks, coats, etc. must be left outside the exam room, or must be stored in the front of the exam room. Similarly for books and notes, unless explicitly stated otherwise.
  5. Students will be required to sign an attendance sheet.
  6. Students may not open their exam until instructed to do so, and must stop writing as soon as instructed to do so.
  7. Talking during an exam is prohibited.
  8. Beginning 10 minutes from the end of the exam period, students must remain in their seats until all exams have been collected by the proctors.

Cheating on an exam is a Level Three Violation of Rutgers Academic Integrity Policy, whose minimum punishment is a one-term suspension.
