Final Course Examinations

See also Exam Schedules

Students are required to take a final examination, if one is given, in every course for which they are registered. Exceptions hold for seniors in the International Honors College found in the Undergraduate Bulletin.

No final examinations may be given except during the regular examination period of the semester. According to faculty policy, no test which shall be substituted for the final examination can be given between November 25 and the opening of fall examination week. In the spring semester, no such test can be given after April 15.

During the ten calendar days prior to Reading Day in the fall semester and in the spring semester, no hourly tests may be given unless they were announced during the first month of the semester.

Change of Examination Schedule

A student desiring to change the meeting time of a final exam should make the request directly to the class instructor. It is the instructor's prerogative to grant such requests.

In instances where students have three exams within a 24-hour period, they may apply to the University Registrar's Office, 180 Mossman Building, for permission to change their exam schedules. The usual policy is to change the middle examination in a sequence of three. All requests for changes in examinations must be filed with the University Registrar's Office by Reading Day or by the last day of classes for the semester.
