Rule 80.  SCHEDULING ALL COMMON EXAMINATIONS

Instructors wishing to schedule examinations outside of normal class periods have two options: common examinations (Rule 80) and out-of-class examinations (Rule 81). Both of these options must yield priority to officially scheduled class meetings, including lectures, labs, and studios. For example, if a common examination is scheduled during a student's lab time in another course, the instructor of the common examination must accommodate the student by offering alternate examination times.

Common examinations may be requested for courses having an enrollment of at least two percent of the total student body or undergraduate courses with multiple lecture sections.

Up to four common examinations may be scheduled outside the official class meeting time each semester. Common examination periods must be scheduled at the following time blocks:

Monday and Friday: 7:00 to 8:00 a.m.; 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.; and 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.

Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday: 7:00 to 8:00 a.m.; 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.; and 8:00 to 10:00 p.m.

One class period shall be omitted to compensate for each common examination given. A class period lost to Labor Day, Veterans Day, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Presidents Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day holiday(s), and/or any other class day omitted from the academic calendar may be counted toward this compensation for a common examination.

For prioritized scheduling, proposed common examination dates and times must be submitted to the Registrar's Office no later than April 1 for fall semesters and no later than October 1 for spring semesters. Common examination times will be confirmed no later than the Friday before priority registration for the future semester. Later requests for common examination dates will be accommodated through the first week of the semester, on a space-available basis.

In cases where an alternate time may be needed to accommodate conflicts, instructors may contact the Registrar's Office for that additional scheduling.

 

Process for requesting Common Exams

Common Exams must include all sections of a given course.

Up to four common examinations may be scheduled outside the official class meeting time each semester. Common examination periods may be scheduled at the following time blocks:

Monday and Friday: 7:00 to 8:00 a.m.; 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.; and 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.

Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday: 7:00 to 8:00 a.m.; 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.; and 8:00 to 10:00 p.m.

Requests for common exams received by the following dates will be given priority in scheduling:

  • Fall Semester requests need to be submitted by April 1.
  • Spring Semester requests need to be submitted by October 1.
    • Requests will be confirmed no later than the Friday before priority registration for the future semester.
  • Requests received after April 1 and October 1 will be accommodated through the first week of the semester, on a space available basis.

Please submit these requests through the Event Scheduling website.  An email confirmation will be sent once the request is completed.

Instructions on how to submit a Common Exam event request can be found by clicking here.
