The time of an examination may not be changed after it is fixed in this schedule and has been posted on the Registrar’s website

Examinations are scheduled according to the day and start time of the first meeting of the course each week and held in the regular assigned meeting room unless the instructor is otherwise notified. For example, a class meeting only on Wednesdays but beginning at 10:10 a.m. would still have their final exam on Tuesday, December 10, at 8:00 a.m.

Classes that start at a non-standard time on their first meeting day each week will hold their exam during the examination period for classes not otherwise provided for in the schedule on December 12 at 12:00-3:00 p.m. Instructors are strongly encouraged to begin their classes according to the Standard Meeting Patterns listed on the Registrar’s website.

*Common Hour Exams conflicting with other exams must be the exams that must be rescheduled.

Final exams for RA (remote asynchronous) classes are at the discretion of the instructor.

Final assessments are required in all undergraduate courses. (See the Undergraduate Catalog for rules on exceptions.)

  • No examinations (except for laboratory sections) may be held at a time other than that specified in the general schedule except after first petitioning the dean and with the advance approval of the provost.
  • No examination time can be changed after it has been announced.
  • No special preparation quizzes may be given during the last five days of classes (last two days of classes for summer school) before the beginning of the final exam period. Assignments which will be considered a part of the final exam should be clearly announced in the course syllabus and should be due on the date of the examination.
  • No examination may begin later than 7:00 p.m.

Final examinations should ordinarily cover two hours but should not exceed three hours.

Instructors teaching classes scheduled for Common Hour Exams shall request the students in these classes to report to them any conflict with any other examination not later than Friday, November 1, 2024.  In case of a conflict, the department offering the Common Hour Exam is responsible for offering alternative accommodations to impacted students.

A student who has three final examinations scheduled by the Office of the University Registrar within a twenty-four-hour period or two scheduled at the same time may request his or her dean (or designee) for permission to have one of the scheduled examinations rescheduled. In all cases in which an examination is to be rescheduled, the instructor may reschedule that examination during the final examination period, but not later than the end of the following semester. Any petition for a change in the examination schedule because of the “three exams in a twenty-four hour” rule must be made to your dean’s office before the first day of the final examinations. 

Students are required to take final examinations as scheduled. The only exceptions are for illness or other medically-documented situations which places them on the infirmary list at Campus Health Services. For family or personal emergency situations, College of Arts and Sciences students must contact their academic dean to request permission for an examination excuse and documentation will be required.
