Final Exam Schedule Policies

A student who has more than two final examinations scheduled for the same day need not take more than two of these exams on that day. If the student wants to reschedule examinations, then the following guidelines must be followed:

·        1. can not reschedule the first exam,

·        2. can not reschedule any common exam (ENGL 103, PSYC 101)

·        3. when possible, reschedule the middle exam when it is not a common exam.

·        A student must abide by the following procedures when requesting to reschedule examinations:

·        a. must reschedule exam no later than one full week before the final examinations begin,

·        b. must provide each of the professors involved with a written copy of his/her complete examination schedule, including course numbers, sections numbers and name of professors.

·        The professors of courses whose examinations are not scheduled in the first time slot and are not common exams will reschedule their examinations within the final examination period on a day in which the student has few than two scheduled examinations.  The professor will notify the student when and where the examination will be given.  In the event the professor contacts the other professors involved and makes alternate arrangements for the student to take no more than two examinations in a day, the professor will inform the student of those arrangements prior to the last day of classes.

·        A student who has more than one examination scheduled for the same time period should contact the professors involved to make alternate arrangements.
