 Principles Governing the Final Exam Week Schedule:
All classes meeting at 4:00p.m. or later will hold final exams during their regular meeting period in the final exam week and be limited to their scheduled hours. Requests for extended hours will be granted if a classroom is available and the instructor has determined that the extended hours will not cause students a conflict with their other final exams.

Any deviation from the final exam schedule must be initiated by the instructor, approved by the instructor's dean and scheduled through the Registration and Scheduling office. Requests for extended hours will be granted if the instructor has determined the extended hours will not cause his/her students to have conflicts with other final examinations.

Students are not required to take more than two exams in one day. A student with more than two scheduled final exams on one day may (not must) petition to the instructor of the course with the lowest number students enrolled, to arrange an alternate time for the final exam. Such petitions must be made at least one week prior to the scheduled date of the final exam.

In situations where conflicts exist between the regular day schedule and the group exam schedule, the group exam takes precedence. If there is a conflict among the regular schedule, group exam and evening schedule, the group exam takes precedence. The instructor with the fewest students in the remaining two classes will offer alternate arrangements to students.

Any student unable to take a final exam at the scheduled time due to religious convictions shall petition the instructor in advance of the final exam to arrange an alternate time.

Examinations and course activities may not be scheduled on the examination study day.

Students who are registered with Student Disability Services (SDS) and who are approved for testing accommodations should submit their exam requests to Student Disability Services at least one week in advance of the final exam. Federal law requires that a student registered with SDS is entitled to the reasonable accommodations specified in the student's accommodation letter, which might include allowing the student to take the final exam on a day or at a time different than the rest of the class.

Grades are available on the web at Academica 72 hours after taking the final examination.
