Final Exam/Portfolio

The Final Examination policy requires M.L.S. students to complete their studies by taking a final examination near the end of the program of study for the M.L.S. The Final Examination is a degree requirement toward the M.L.S.; it is not a course.

To participate in the Final Examination, the student must be enrolled in at least one class during the semester when the Final Examination takes place. Only students who have completed at least 24 credit hours will be allowed to participate in the Final Examination Portfolio. Any portfolio that is not submitted by the deadline set by the Final Exam Committee will not be reviewed.

The Final Examination is administered once in the fall semester and once in the spring semester.  The examination is not offered in summer semesters.

A student who does not pass the final exam may attempt the Final Examination a second time in a subsequent semester. No student is allowed to attempt the Final Examination more than twice.

For further information about the Final Exam Portfolio, please see the SLIS Student Resources Blackboard organization. Go to (SLIS) Student Resources > Portfolio Final Exam.
