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 email@example.com.
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 (pdf) and return it to the Registrar’s Office. In order for alternate arrangements to be made, a Final Exam Conflict Form must be submitted at least one week before the final exam week begins. Please check the above Final Exam Schedule for the specific deadline.
An undergraduate student may be excused from an examination if the student 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 the student's class dean. For more information, please contact the Student Advising and Success office.
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.
