  • Policies:

    • Final exams (counting 25% or more of the final grade) may not be given in undergraduate courses in the last five days of any regular semester, nor on posted Reading Days, but should be administered during the six day final exam period.
    • There shall be a break of at least 24 hours, designated Reading Day(s), at the beginning of Finals Week. No required examinations, tests, or quizzes may be given on Reading Day(s), to allow students to review for upcoming finals and to complete projects. Additionally, no student can be required to take any examination, test, or quiz on Reading Day(s).
    • Students should confirm final exams with their instructors.
    • Common final exams for multi-section courses and/or three hour final exams do not follow the standard exam schedule based on the meeting time of the lecture.
    • Students will not have more than three exams on the same day. Students with three exams on the same day may contact their instructors to request a make-up or alternate exam, at the discretion of the instructor. Contact your instructors to arrange an alternate exam time.
