Final Examination Schedules
Other Examination Information
The examination schedule applies both to faculty and students. Unless previous arrangements have been made, it is expected that the official schedule will be followed.
A comprehensive final examination, if required, must be administered at the time indicated on the final schedule. No final comprehensive examination shall be administered to a class with the last two weeks prior to the officially scheduled final examination period (excluding summer sessions or half-semester courses). In the week prior to the beginning of the final examination period, unit tests, papers, projects, and other assignments are permissible if announced in the course outline/assignment sheet/syllabus or prior to mid-term.
For those classes which do not, in the instructor's judgment, require a final comprehensive examination the time of the officially scheduled final examination will be used for other appropriate class activities, such as evaluation, reports, performance, or regular class work. Therefore, it is expected that the class will meet at the time of the officially scheduled final examination whether or not a final examination is administered.
The department head shall have the responsibility for seeing that the final examination schedule and the relevant policies are followed. Students may report policy violations to the appropriate department head in accordance with the university academic grievance procedures.
Student requests to take final examinations at times other than as scheduled will be granted for only the most urgent reasons. Excessive examination load, three on one day, is a justifiable reason for a change.
To Request a Change in the Examination Schedule, a Student Must:
- Prepare an "Undergraduate Student Request" form (available from your advisor or department head) for each request. State the request and the reason for it.
- A change in the examination time of an individual course must be approved by the instructor and the department head.
- A request to change all exams must be approved by the Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost.
