Final exam policies and schedule

Spring 2011 examination schedule
Monday, May 9-Friday, May 13 (Final Exam dates have been changed due to the snow storm that cancelled classes earlier this semester.)
(No finals will be held on Sat. or Sun. unless it is an approved exception.)

Policies:

  • Finals schedule - Each class is to meet in the scheduled room at the scheduled period for the examination or other instructional activity. No one is authorized to change this schedule in any way without permission of the Office of the University Registrar, upon recommendation of the appropriate department chairman and divisional dean, in accordance with the Faculty Handbook.
  • Non-standard class meeting times -
    • When a class period crosses over two possible finals times, the Office of the University Registrar staff will assign the final using the earlier beginning time. Example: Sections that meet Tuesday and Thursday, 9:00-10:50 a.m., the final would be scheduled using the TR 9:00-9:50 a.m. day and time.
    • Sections meeting only Monday and Wednesday, will be assigned by the Office of the University Registrar staff as if the section meets MWF. Examples: Class sections meeting MW 9:30-10:45 a.m. or MW 9:30-10:30 a.m., the final would be scheduled using the MWF 9:00-9:50 a.m. day and time
  • Conflicting final examinations -
    • When a regular final conflicts with a Group Final, the Group Final instructor must schedule the make-up exam.
    • Conflicting Group Finals should be rare, but when they occur, whose time has an asterisk must give the make-up examination that term.
    • When two regularly scheduled finals conflict, the one with the asterisk gives the make-up exam that term.
  • More than two finals in a calendar day - In the event a student is scheduled to take more than two final examinations on the same day, the student may:
    1. Take all final examinations as they are scheduled; or
    2. Consult with the instructors giving the final examinations to determine if any make-up examination(s) is or can be scheduled, preferably during one of the make-up examination times available in the schedule.
  • Room assignments - Rooms for examinations are the same as those used for recitation or common meeting time during the semester, except in the case of Group (multi-sections of a course) Final Examinations.
    • The Office of the University Registrar will assign rooms for Group Final examinations. Departments will be notified as soon as practical.
    • Where the schedule creates a classroom conflict, the Office of the University Registrar staff members will rotate the preference for the room space and find alternate space for the classes that are to be relocated.
  • Requests for Group (multi-section) Final Exams - Requests must meet the following conditions:
    • Courses must have total enrollment of 100 or more.
    • Sections must not have a common meeting time.
    • All sections must be willing to participate in the requested common examination time.
    • Courses offering a Group Final must give offer a make-up final for students who may have conflicts with regularly scheduled section finals.
    • Times and dates for Group Final examinations will be determined by the Office of the University Registrar and published in the Schedule of Classes.
    • Requests for such examinations must be submitted with the proposed course schedule to the Departments Deans Office and then to the Office of the University Registrar.
  • Make-up examinations - All exams must be completed by noon on Friday, May 13.
    • Make-ups may be given on a mutually agreed upon time between the faculty member and the student, but examinations for the entire class may not be moved without permission, as cited above.
    • To assist with setting make-up exams time has been made available on Friday, May 13, to be used in cases where conflicts occur due to the published schedule.
  • Late afternoon, upper-division courses - These courses, as defined below, are not required to follow the published schedule.
    • Courses numbered 8000 to 8999 and classes beginning after 4 p.m. (evening classes) may conduct final examinations any time during the examination period that is agreeable to instructor and students.
    • Arrangements for use of a classroom during the hours 8:00 a.m.-5:30 p.m. during the exam week must be made with the Office of the University Registrar-Registration, 125 Jesse Hall for any classes that meet the above definition.
  • Sections that meet one day per week - Any instructor who teaches a course that meets one day a week should check with the Office of the University Registrar-Registration Office, 125 Jesse Hall, to see whether there is another class scheduled for the complementary day of the week at the same time in the same room. Should a conflict occur, it must therefore be resolved well before the final examination time.

Note:
The Committee on Schedule of Studies and Examination has adopted the following Committee of Dean's clarification of Article V. Section I, of the By-Laws of the University Faculty:
 

"No teacher shall hold a final examination during any time other than the regular final examination time appointed by the Committee on Schedule of Studies and Examinations. No teacher shall hold an interim examination during any time other than the regular meeting time of the class unless a schdeule of such irregular examinations is published prior to the beginning of the semester. Examinations of individual students for particular reasons may be held at the discretion of the teacher."

Group final examinations include all sections of the course.

*If conflicts occur, departments designated by a single asterisk will give make-up examination.

NOTE: Final Exam dates have been changed due to the snow storm that cancelled classes earlier this semester. The recommendation from Faculty Council states that finals will be begin on Monday, May 9, at 7:30 a.m. and end on Friday, May 13th by noon.
