Final Exams

No Final Examinations may be scheduled prior to the Monday of final exam week.  (Saturday classes have their Final Examination on the last Saturday before the final examination week.)

Individual students are entitled to request a change in their final examination times if they have more than two finals scheduled for the same date. Should an examination date need to be changed, the course with the highest catalog number must be rescheduled. If course numbers are identical, then the department whose prefix is alphabetically earlier is rescheduled. The student needing to change exam times has the responsibility to request rescheduling the exam in writing at least two weeks before the last day of classes.

In the case of an individual instructor's hardship, instructors may reschedule a final examination provided he/she obtain: a) the recommendation of the Department Chair AND b) the concurrence of the Dean and Registrar. All rescheduled final examinations must occur during final examinations week.
