Final Exam Policy

Final examinations are held at the end of each semester.  Final examinations may be given only during the regularly scheduled examination period unless one of the following exceptions applies:
  • If a student has two courses scheduled for final examinations at the same time, he should re-schedule one examination in consultation with the professors
  • If a student has three or more final examinations scheduled in a two day period, he has the right to re-schedule one of the afternoon examinations to one of the study days or to another day which is mutually acceptable to both professor and student.
  • When more than one section of a course is taught by the same professor, students may take the examination with any section the professor approves.  Approval, however, must be obtained before the beginning of the examination period.
  • A professor may move an examination to an earlier period in the examination schedule if all the students in the course agree.  No final examination may be given before the first day of the examination period (with the exception of Rhetoric courses).
  • A student who desires to take a final examination outside the regularly scheduled period for some reason other than those specified above must obtain the permission of the Dean of the Faculty.
