Fall 2022 Exam Schedule is now posted: More information on the exam policy can be found here.
Examinations are scheduled to take place from December 9 to December 19. Exams occur Monday to Saturday in three-hour blocks of time:
9:00 a.m. – 12:00p.m.
2:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
7:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.
Online exam platforms will differ based on each course. Students should reach out to their professor to discuss what platform they will be expected to use for their upcoming online exam to ensure they are fully prepared.
Supplemental exams are governed by all other policies and procedures found elsewhere in this document with the exception of scheduling since supplemental exams normally occur after the end of the semester during which the course occurred and so they must be scheduled differently from other exams.
Departments shall establish a policy on whether or not they will permit supplemental exams and this will be included on the course outline. The department shall inform the Registrar’s Office of their policy for planning purposes. Departmental policy may include the right of individual course instructors to decide whether supplemental exams are available in their own courses. Departments are free to make separate decisions about lab or other practical exams.
An exam rewritten on the basis of extenuating circumstances is not considered a supplemental, and therefore not limited to a bare pass.
Where a departmental policy and/or instructor is allowing supplemental exams, they will only be made under the following circumstances:
Scheduling of all supplemental exams shall be handled through the Registrar. Students must apply to write supplemental exams by submitting the appropriate form to the Registrar. The application must be submitted within the first 5 class days of the semester following the completion of the course. The supplemental exam shall occur within the first 10 class days of the semester following the completion of the course. Submitting an application doesn’t guarantee the student will be eligible to write a supplemental. All supplemental exams must be approved by a faculty member and/or academic school.
Students should notify their instructor(s) immediately if they must miss an examination due to a medical or other serious reason. Upon request, the dean of the school and the instructor may approve a deferred examination.
Postponement of Examinations
If a final examination scheduled by the Registrar cannot be held at the scheduled time because of inclement weather or other circumstances, other examinations will be written as scheduled and the postponed examinations will be rescheduled by the Registrar’s Office for the first available day after the completion of the examination schedule.
Midterm exams and other exams which were scheduled without the involvement of the Registrar will be rescheduled via consultation between the instructor and the students if they cannot be written at the original planned time because of inclement weather or other reasons.
This refers to emergency situations where it was not possible to make arrangements prior to the exam and so a new date is arranged. It applies to emergencies which prevented the student from attending the exam, or which arose during the writing of the exam. It also applies to situations in which a student has written the exam but subsequently claims that there were extenuating circumstances such that they should not have written the exam. In such a case the student may request an opportunity to retake the exam.
