Final Exam Schedules

Final Exams

I have 3+ finals in one day!

During final examination week, if the scheduled arrangement results in students having three or more examinations scheduled for any one day, any one of their instructors is authorized to excuse the students from the regularly scheduled examination and give a final examination to the students during the special exams time blocks. In cases of difficulty in arriving at a solution, students shall refer the matter to the chairpersons of their departments or to their academic advisors.

Academic Regulations, Rule 77

Actions to take if you have 3+ finals in one day

  • Contact your instructors first. They have the authority to move or excuse a final.
  • If you are not able to find a solution, contact your Department Chair next.
  • If you are still not able to find a solution, contact your Academic Advisor.
  • In extreme circumstances when a solution has not been found, contact the Ombudsman.

Moving a final to a different day
