Final Examinations

The times and places of final examinations are officially scheduled by the Master Schedule Coordinator. Legitimate exam conflicts are defined as follows:  more than one scheduled exam per period; more than two examinations scheduled per day; or more than three examinations scheduled in any four consecutive periods.  A student with a legitimate conflict should work directly with his/her instructor to resolve the conflict.  It is the student's responsibility to initiate the resolution of any conflicts. Personal conflicts such as travel plans and work schedules do not warrant a change in examination times.

The form of the final examination is determined by the instructor. The length, however, may not exceed two and one-half hours.

In 600-level courses, the class meets during examination week. However, it is left to the discretion of the instructor as to whether the two and one-half hour examination period is spent in an examination or in other class activities considered more useful. In 500-level courses, graduate students, at the discretion of the instructor, follow the same procedures as undergraduate students with regard to final examinations.
