Seniors who are taking courses that do not have a North Carolina Final Exam, End-of-Course test, or CTE Post Assessment may be eligible to be exempt from their final exam. To be exempt from a teacher made final exam, students must meet the following specifications:
- No more than three (3) absences (any form of absence) during the semester/term and an A in the course
- No more than two (2) absences (any form of absence) during the semester/term and a B in the course
- No more than one (1) absence (any form of absence) during the semester/term and a C in the course
If a senior is required to take a trip to a college (scholarship interview, required visit as part of his/her acceptance, etc.), he/she will need to submit documentation to the attendance office prior to the visit in order for it to be approved AND not count against their exemptions.
Tardies DO NOT count as absences and may not impact exemptions
