Undergraduate Final Examination Policy

15-Week Classes

  • Final examinations will be administered only during the week designated by the University Registrar as Finals Week and only according to the published Examination Schedule.
  • Examination times during Finals Week may not be changed by a course instructor.
  • Examinations will take place in the rooms scheduled by the Registrar for that examination, normally the room in which the class has been meeting.
  • Final examinations may not be administered earlier than the 15th week of a term. A regular exam or quiz is permitted during the 14th week of classes at the discretion of the course instructor, but these do not replace the final examination.
  • Common examination times are established where all sections of a course meet simultaneously and are assigned in the Examination Schedule.
  • University policy permits a student who has three examinations scheduled on the same day to seek permission to reschedule one of the exams. The request will be made to the Dean of the School of the student’s major.
  • There will be no intercollegiate athletics competition or other University-sponsored activities during Final Exam Week.

8-Week Classes

  • Final examinations may not be administered earlier than the 8th or optional 9th  week of the term at the discretion of the instructor. Courses must be able to account for the required 42 instructional hours (for a 3-credit course) not including the final examination.
  • Examinations will take place in the rooms scheduled by the Registrar for that examination, normally the room in which the class has been meeting.
  • Final examinations may not be administered during the 7th week of a term. A regular exam or quiz is permitted during the 7th week of classes at the discretion of the course instructor, but these do not replace the final examination.
  • Exceptions to this policy must be presented and approved by the Dean of the School of the respective faculty prior to its effect.
