Notes

Asynchronous Classes

Asynchronous classes will have remote/online exams as determined by the instructor. Instructors should be prepared to offer remote/online make–up exams if a student has an exam conflict.

Synchronous Online Classes

Synchronous online classes will have remote/online exams as determined by the exam schedule above.

Evening and Saturday Classes

Unless otherwise listed above, evening and Saturday class examinations are to be administered during the examination week at the regularly scheduled class time.

Final Exams Must Be Held During Exam Week

If a final examination—comprehensive or not—is part of class requirements, it must be given only during the final examination week according to the schedule above. Final examinations administered earlier than the appointed time, either during the prior week or during the final examination week, are not permitted. The sole exception to this policy is block exams. We ask for your complete cooperation by adhering strictly to this schedule for all class examinations. Appeals for any changes should be sent to the University Registrar. 

Block Exams

If social distancing is required for Fall Semester 2021, then block examinations will be delivered remotely. Courses that have been approved for block examinations will have their examinations either Monday through Thursday from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. or Monday or Tuesday from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. so as to minimize conflicts with other class examinations. Only courses in which all sections have agreed to participate in a common examination at a common time are eligible for block exam scheduling.

Online Class Grading

Online Class Grading is available 24 hours a day.

Students With Three or More Exams on the Same Day

Any student having three examinations on one day can request postponement or reassignment of one of them provided it can be worked out with the instructor of one of the courses in question.

Graduate and Once a Week In–Service Classes

The examination schedule does not apply to graduate and in–service classes that meet once a week, usually in the late afternoon (4:00 p.m. or later) and are largely attended by part–time students. Final examinations in these classes are to be given remotely/online during the examination week during the regular class time. 

Half Session Classes

The examination schedule does not apply to half–session classes. Final examinations in these classes are to be given remotely/online during the last class meeting at the regular class time.
