Comprehensive Final Examinations must be scheduled during the final examination period at the times indicated in the final exam schedule. Any variance from this schedule must be approved by the Dean of the College and reported to the Facilities Scheduler using our Contact Form.
Instructors desiring to schedule multiple section exams must contact the College Assistant/Associate Dean who will coordinate scheduling with the Facilities Scheduler to minimize conflicts. Multiple section exams MUST be scheduled only during the specified multi-section (FREE) exam periods (see below). Instructors scheduling multiple section exams should avoid conflicts for the students who have several multiple section exams.
Multi-section (FREE) exam periods: free exam times will always occur on Saturday during Final Exam week within the following time blocks: [1:00 p.m. – 3:50 p.m.], [4:00 p.m. – 6:50 p.m.], and [7:00 p.m. – 9:50 p.m.]. Other multi-section (free) exam times may vary.
If a class does not meet at one of the time blocks listed, the instructor should contact the Facilities Scheduler using our Contact Form to schedule an appropriate final exam date and time; the instructor is responsible for notifying students. If the new scheduled exam time conflicts with the final exam for another class for any student, the instructor will be required to make special arrangements with the student. Students are responsible for notifying instructors of final exam conflicts.
Assuming there are no conflicts, students are required to take all final exams during the scheduled exam time. There is no policy limiting the number of exams that a student can take in one day. There are five possible time blocks for each exam date; a student may be required to take all five in one day.
As of Fall 2012, "Study Day" occurs at the end of each Fall and Spring semester prior to exams. On this day, classes do not meet and exams are not given. Study Day serves as a day for students to prepare for upcoming final exams. Please check the Academic Calendar for the scheduled Study Day for each semester.
