Out of Class Exam Request Form

To minimize conflicts for students with other scheduled University courses and activities, a required examination, test or quiz (excluding make-up examinations for individuals and regularly scheduled final examinations) may be given only during regularly scheduled class or laboratory hours associated with that course.

The sole exception to this policy is for common examinations given for MULTI-SECTION courses when these various sections have DIFFERENT scheduled meeting times. For these permissible common examinations, the following will apply:

  • Common examinations will be scheduled only from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., Monday thru Friday
    and on Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The Registrar's office will insure that there are no conflicts among the common examinations scheduled and will announce the dates and times of the common examinations on their web site. Departments will determine the examination dates and times sufficiently far in advance so that they are included with the registration information for that term. (September for Spring courses, and March for Fall courses)

In the few instances where it may be necessary for a student to schedule a course in conflict with a common examination, the instructor of the single section course will treat the student's absence from class on that day as excused.
