BY ARRANGEMENT EXAMS: For courses with a “By Arrangement” exam code (A), students must check with the course instructor for specific final exam information.
COMMON EXAMS AND NON-PATTERN EXAMS TAKE PRECEDENCE OVER THE PATTERN EXAM SCHEDULE. STUDENTS MUST BRING FINAL EXAM CONFLICTS TO THE ATTENTION OF THEIR DEAN OF STUDENTS AT LEAST TWO WEEKS BEFORE THE FIRST FINAL EXAM DAY.
If a student has a conflict where more than two exams are scheduled within a 24 hour time period, or more than two exams are scheduled in consecutive periods (ex: one exam from 3:00pm – 6:00pm, followed by an exam from 6:20pm – 9:20pm, followed by an exam the following morning from 8:30am – 11:30am), the faculty member(s) are required to provide a make-up exam day and time. The faculty member should contact their respective department/school contact who will work in accordance with Academic Scheduling as needed.
A priority order is set with number one being the top priority in terms of resolving exam conflicts with courses held in different instructional formats:
- Synchronous Course Meeting Exams
- All courses with a set meeting day and time pattern during the semester which have a synchronous final exam held on a specific day and time
- Group Exams
- Common Exams
- By Arrangement Final Exams
- Online in-person exams offering a synchronous final exam are currently optional but it must follow the date and time as indicated on this schedule.
- A student with three exams with equivalent priority (e.g., three group exams or three synchronous course exams) in a 24-hour period will try to reschedule one of the exams as a make-up. If the professors involved do not volunteer to give a make-up exam for such a student, then the instructor for the middle exam must schedule a make-up exam at an appropriate alternate date/time.
Students must bring final exams conflicts to the attention of their academic advisor/academic deans at least two weeks before the first final exam day in order to ensure that the final exam conflicts can be resolved.
STUDENTS MUST BRING FINAL EXAM CONFLICTS TO THE ATTENTION OF THEIR DEAN OF STUDENTS AT LEAST TWO WEEKS BEFORE THE FIRST FINAL EXAM DAY.
