Final Examinations will be administered during the regularly scheduled finals week, at the same time and day the class met during the semester. The date for final examinations in eight-week courses shall be noted in the course syllabus. The date for Saturday only classes will have examinations on the Saturday immediately following Stop Day. There are no other finals scheduled on Saturday. If a student has a conflict with another final exam, the student should work out an alternate plan with their instructor.
Proctoring Student Exams
Proctoring exams is the responsibility of the faculty member teaching the course. Sometimes, however, there is a need for an individual student to complete an exam outside of the regularly scheduled class period. If this is the case, faculty can make arrangements for the exam by contacting Lisa Browning. Due to constraints in proctor staffing, we ask that you keep these requests to a minimum. Priority is given to students requiring accommodations for testing. Office hours are from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday.
Should an emergency arise and a faculty member cannot be present on a scheduled assessment date, contact the Center for Faculty & Academic Administration as soon as possible to discuss options. Instructors may need to reschedule or adjust assessment timing expectations in these emergency circumstances.
