Final Exams

Teaching Assistants should be aware of important university policies regarding final exams. UWM Policy SAAP 1-9 outlines the scheduling, change in scheduling, and exemption for final examinations. With rare exceptions, the final examination shall be given during the regular examination period. The time of a final examination for an individual or a class may be changed only with the prior approval of the dean. An approved change can only be a postponement to a later date and must be clearly communicated to students early in the term. In the event that the final examination for a particular class must be rescheduled, it should, if possible, be conducted during the optional examination time slot built into the final examination schedule.

Examinations cannot be given earlier than their normally scheduled time.

For additional requirements related to final examinations, see the Final Exam Schedule.
