Instructors may deviate from the approved schedule only upon recommendation of the college dean and prior approval of the Provost. Regular classrooms will be used for the exam unless instructors make special arrangements through the Registrar's Office. Refer to Regulation H of the General Catalog for more information.
Common final exams are scheduled from 7-9pm, Monday through Thursday of finals week. Departments that need to schedule a common final must contact the Office of the Registrar.
Evening classes, starting at 5pm or later, will have the final examination during final exam week at the regular class time.
Online classes that have in-person finals will have the final examination on Saturday following final exam week during Fall semester and Saturday prior to final exam week during Spring semester.
Students with more than two finals on one day may have the excess final(s) rescheduled. Students must make arrangements as early in the semester as possible, but no later than two weeks prior to final exam week. Requests submitted after the deadline are left to the discretion of the instructors. If voluntary accommodation is not achieved, the instructor of the class with the lowest enrollment will offer the alternative exam. The rescheduled exam will take place during one of the designated conflict exam periods or as arranged with the course instructor.
Non-Standard Class Meeting Times
Classes with a non-standard meeting pattern will use the final exam start time in the day/time pattern of the earlier hour. For example, a Tuesday class starting at 8:30 am will use the 8 am Tuesday final exam time.
Class Time not in Final Schedule
For class meeting times not found in the final schedule, the instructor of the class is responsible for contacting the Office of the Registrar to identify the appropriate day and time for the final exam.
No Exam Week
No quizzes or exams shall be given in lecture-recitation periods during the week before final exam week. Exams in labs, physical education activity classes, final in-class essays in English composition classes, and final oral presentations in speech classes are permitted.
