Final Examination Policies

SAS policies

A full statement of SAS policies on final examinations is given here.

Particularly noteworthy:

For all SAS courses, the expectation is that final exam times will be the ones in the published schedule, and any requests for exceptions must come to the SAS Vice Dean for Undergraduate Education prior to the exam period.

Policies of other units, such as Engineering, may vary.

Some salient points are summarized on the final examination schedule page as follows.


The following rules shall govern the construction of the examination schedule and the handling of examination conflicts.

All final exams must be scheduled during the official Final Examination period as stated in the academic calendar except those approved by the Dean of Instruction of the academic unit.

Exam periods will be three hours in length and will be scheduled at the following hours: 8:00 - 11:00 am, 12:00 Noon - 3:00 pm, 4:00 - 7:00 pm or 8:00 - 11:00 pm.

Exams for courses regularly scheduled in the evenings have priority in terms of space and time over group or conflicts exams which might also be scheduled in the evening, Students enrolled in courses which are regularly scheduled in the evenings must take those exams at their scheduled times.

A student shall be said to have an exam conflict if that student has:

  • More than two (2) exams on one calendar day.More than two (2) exams scheduled in consecutive periods (Eg: a student has exams scheduled for 4:00 - 7:00 pm and 8:00 - 11:00 pm on one day and 8:00 - 11:00 am on the following day.)Two exams scheduled for the same exam period.
  • Students having an exam conflict should contact the office of their college dean. Students having an illness requiring medical attention or conflict due to a religious observance, should contact the instructor of the course(s) involved for information regarding the arrangements for the make-up examination. The instructor may re-schedule the examination during the examination period and is responsible for rescheduling, proctoring, and grading make-up examinations to accommodate students who have conflicts. 5.If an instructor desires verification of the absence from an examination, the student must provide it. If they need assistance in providing it, they may contact the appropriate Dean's Office of the College in which they are enrolled.

Comments on the above

In the Mathematics Department the faculty often verify the conflicts themselves. In such cases one should take pains to check that the conflict actually falls within one of the stated cases. When questions arise as to which of two or more exams should be rescheduled, as a matter of custom it is generally more convenient for the larger course to give way, as they are likely to need a make-up examination in any case.

Final examination times are set by the scheduling office and are not to be modified by the instructors
