Final Exam Schedule

Final Examinations

Individual and Combined Final Exams are assigned rooms by the Registrar’s Office. Final exams in General Assignment Classrooms are assigned in late-September for Fall terms, and mid-February for Spring terms. Typically, final exams are held in the classroom in which the class is taught. However, there are always a small number of changes due to conflicts. Departments are notified of these changes when rooms are assigned each semester. It is the responsibility of the department to contact the instructor and students regarding the location change.

Students may request an alternate time for an exam if they have three or more scheduled exams on the same day.  When a combined final exam conflicts with a student’s individual final exam or results in an excessive schedule (3 or more exams in one day), it is the responsibility of the department giving the combined final exam to offer it at another time.  The “Optional Exam Time” is included on the schedule for make-up or rescheduled exams.

One-hour final exams in one-credit courses may be given during the last class period; two-hour final exams in all other courses shall be given during the regular examination period. The time of a final exam for a class may be changed only with the prior approval of the dean or director. The change will involve a postponement to a later date. Both the Provost’s Office and Registrar’s Office shall be notified of any approved changes in final exams in order to avoid scheduling conflicts of day, hour and room. To determine date and time of an Individual exam, the hours and days of the class lecture should be used.

For more detailed Final Exam policies, please refer to this document.

Spring Final Examination Schedule

May 15 & 17-22, 2021

Optional Exam Time:  7:30 – 9:30 AM, Friday, May 21, 2021.

Based upon a recommendation of the Academic Policy Committee, this optional exam period has been reserved for students with exam conflicts to take one of the conflicting exams.

Conflict: When a combined final examination conflicts with a student’s individual final examination, it is the responsibility of the department giving the combined final examination to offer the combined final examination at another time.

Official Emergency: If the University must declare an official emergency during the final examination period, the exams that are postponed will be rescheduled in the same rooms at the same times on Saturday, May 22, 2021. In the event that more than one day of exams are cancelled, the Office of the Provost will announce plans for rescheduling.

Study Day Policy:  The current iteration of the study day was created as a permanent fixture of the academic calendar via a motion by the Academic Policy Committee in 1987 as part of the 1989-90 academic calendar recommendation.

Late Hour (4:30 PM & later) and Saturday Classes: Late hour final examinations will be held at the regular meeting time during the week of final examinations. If the class meets multiple days per week, the final examination will be held on the first day of the meeting pattern (i.e., if a class meets MW 5:30 PM, the exam will be held Monday at 5:30 PM during exam week).  Saturday classes will hold their final examination on Friday during their regular meeting time.

Combined Final Exams: Combined Final Exams are exams given at the same time for a group of class sections for a course. When a combined final exam conflicts with a student’s individual final exam, it is the responsibility of the department giving the combined final exam to offer it at another time.
