Final exams for first session courses, courses with special start and end dates, and courses that are specific to some programs are typically scheduled by the professor.
For undergraduate students: a final exam conflict occurs if two exams are scheduled at the same time. SME2001 and SME2002 is considered a common exam and counts as one final exam. If you have three or more exams on an exam day and need special accommodation please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
For graduate students: a final exam conflict occurs if two exams are scheduled at the same time or if a student has more than six hours of exams scheduled on the same day.
If you have a final exam conflict, you must complete the Final Exam Conflict Form and return it to the Registrar’s Office. In order for alternate arrangements to be made, a Final Exam Conflict Form must be submitted by Monday, December 5th.
An undergraduate student may be excused from an examination if he/she meets the criteria outlined in the Undergraduate Student Handbook. Reasons include, but are not limited to: a serious illness, death in the immediate family, observance of a religious holiday, and NCAA intercollegiate athletic events. A student who will miss an examination must submit an Exam Excuse Form to his/her class dean. For more information, please contact Academic Services.
A graduate student may be excused from a final exam in cases where there are extenuating circumstances. Permission to miss a final exam must be obtained from the The Office of Graduate Academic Services prior to the exam date and time. Extenuating circumstances include, but are not limited to: serious illness supported by doctor’s certification, death in the immediate family, or observance of a religious holiday. The following are NOT considered extenuating circumstances: oversleeping, travel (business travel confirmed in writing in advance is acceptable for part-time students), disabled vehicles, or misunderstanding the schedule.
