Fall 2021 Final Examinations Schedules
Tardiness

If an instructor allows a student who arrives late for a final examination to take the examination as scheduled, no additional time beyond the period scheduled by the Office of the Registrar will be provided.

Maximum Number of Exams

If a student is scheduled for more than two examinations in one day, more than three examination in two consecutive days, or has a time conflict with common examinations, then the student must report to his/her associate dean by the end of the 11th week of classes to make the necessary adjustments to his/her schedule

Illness Prior to and During Final Examinations

Students are responsible for taking final examinations during the period scheduled by the Office of the Registrar. If an incapacitating illness prohibits taking a final examination, the student must notify the Associate Dean of the student’s home school/college and provide complete documentation to University Health Services (UHS)?in advance of the scheduled examination.

Students who begin a final examination are expected to complete it unless a sudden and incapacitating illness requires urgent medical attention. A student whose condition is so serious that medical care is necessary must report immediately to UHS.

If UHS determine?that the medical condition prior to or during the scheduled examination period is serious enough to render a student incapable of taking or completing the examination then, based on the recommendation of UHS, the relevant Associate Dean will determine whether a make-up examination can be completed as per the make-up examination schedule or an I grade should be awarded and the make-up examination should be scheduled at the beginning of the next semester or summer term.

The opportunity to complete a make-up examination will not be provided if compelling medical evidence indicates that taking or completing the examination was an option.?????

Failure to Appear for a Final Examination

A student who fails to appear for the examination, will not be permitted to take the examination unless the Associate Dean of the school/college responsible for the course determines that extraordinary circumstances exist and a make-up examination is warranted.?

Transcripts and Degree Attestation

Commencement Speech

AUS is seeking an undergraduate senior student graduating this semester to speak at the commencement ceremony on January 8, 2022. The university strongly encourages you to participate in this memorable event. If you would like to speak at this event, please submit the first draft of your speech to Dr. Nawar Golley (LAN 232) or by email to [email protected] by November 7, 2021. Anyone who submits a speech is free to consult with Dr. Golley and rewrite the speech. The deadline to submit the final draft for those who will be shortlisted is November 21, 2021. The speech should last no longer than 5 to 7 minutes (about 1,000 words).

If you have submitted your commencement speech and you do not receive notification that you are among the finalists, you can assume that your speech was not selected. There can be many reasons for a speech not being selected, such as a lack of a clear, unifying theme; language errors; or simply an overabundance of excellent speeches.

Guidelines for Commencement Speeches

  • Graduation is a formal occasion and your speech should reflect this. An informal, chatty tone that might work well for an after-dinner speech is not appropriate for a commencement address.
  • Your speech should have a unifying thesis and your ideas should be listed in a clear logical order. Do not simply thank people. You should express ideas that will help your classmates with the challenges they will face after graduation.
  • You should have control over spelling, sentence structure and mechanics. Your paper should not, for example, contain grammar errors or sentence fragments. Many people will be reading the text of your speech.
  • Avoid cliché metaphors and mixed metaphors. Do not write, “We were like seedlings who flourished in the fertile soil of AUS and now we are ready to spread our wings and fly” (Are students plants or birds, and is either comparison flattering to the intellectual abilities of the graduates?) And please do not compare life to a journey.
  • Avoid passive voice constructions, vague adjectives (marvelous, incredible), and indirect phrases (in terms of). All of these can make your writing wordy and unclear. If in doubt, check a grammar handbook about wordiness.
  • Be specific. Instead of saying that many challenges await the graduates, give examples of some of these challenges.
  • Remember that you are speaking for all the graduates, not just for yourself.
  • Hand in your draft as early as possible so that the supervising professor can advise you about correcting and improving the speech. If you wait until the day the speech is due, the professor cannot help you.
  • Finally, do not simply string together a series of “inspiring quotes” culled from websites. Anyone can cut and paste. A good speech reflects your own thoughts, not someone else’s. Please avoid quotes unless the quote is something that you read in context and that means something to you personally (then it should be central to your speech).

Click here for samples of commencement speeches.

Good luck!

The committee will choose five finalists from the drafts submitted, who will then be invited to audition their speeches on December 9, 2021 at 3 p.m. The selected student will deliver his or her speech at commencement.

Please submit your speech with your contact number and email address to:

Following the conclusion of the event, participating students will be required to leave promptly so that physical distancing and gathering requirements are maintained.

Class of 2020 Commencement

We understand the importance of recognizing the completion of your studies at AUS and marking this occasion in a way that acknowledges the hard work and perseverance shown in finishing your degree.
