“First Class Period” refers to the initial class meeting of the normal instructional week, which begins on a Monday. For example, if you have a 1:00 p.m. class that meets on Wednesdays and Fridays, then your final exam will be held on Wednesday, December 12, 12:00–2:50 p.m.

A final exam takes place in the same classroom in which the class met during the semester and must be administered during exam week in all classes. The final exam may not represent more than 50 percent of a student’s final grade. Fall grades are due to the Registrar’s Office by Tuesday, December 18th at 5:00 p.m.

No changes in the final exam schedule may be made. Students may request that a professor reschedule an exam at the convenience of the professor if the student has three final exams on the same day, as long as it does not conflict with another scheduled exam and is given later than the original date and time. Any other change must be sought by petition of the student to the professor’s division chair.

Travel plans are not an acceptable excuse to move an exam. Students must make their travel arrangements accordingly.
