Final Examinations

Final examinations are given at the close of each semester. Students are required to take scheduled final examinations in order to receive credit. Any student who is purposely absent from an examination at any time during a semester forfeits the right to make up work by re-examination.

Final Grades and Transcripts

Final grades are accessible via the Internet as soon as they are submitted by the instructor. To access visit San Bernardino Valley College’s Self-Service website.

Note: Transcripts will not be released if a student has holds, an outstanding financial obligation, or other academic or probationary issues. Requests for transcripts online by logging onto: Requests will be filled within the legally prescribed timeframe, assuming there are no outstanding obligations to the college, or other holds on the students’ record. The first two transcripts are provided at no charge. After two, there is a charge for each additional request.

Incomplete Grades

An incomplete or “I” symbol will be awarded to the student who, in the judgment of the instructor, is unable to complete a course due to a verified emergency. An Incomplete form will be completed by the instructor for each student and submitted to the Admissions and Records Office. This form will cover the conditions for the removal of the “I” and the grade that will be recorded if the work is not completed within one year from the end of the semester in which the “I” was assigned. The student cannot register for the same course until the “I” has been removed.
