Common hour exams are given during the semester for multi-section courses. Dates and times are published in the Registration Handbook. These exams take the place of one class meeting and are included in the student's commitment to the course upon enrolling in it.
Final examinations in one-credit courses are given during regular class periods. Final examinations for all other courses are scheduled by the Registrar, and may not be rescheduled or given prior to the start of the final examination period. According to University policy, the examination period is instructional time, and it is expected that some instructional use is made of this period if a final examination is not given.
A student who has three or more final examinations in any one day should first contact the instructors of the courses to see if one exam can be rescheduled. If this rescheduling can't be resolved, then the student should contact the assistant dean of his or her college at least one week before the beginning of final examination week to assist in resolving the conflict.
