News & Announcements

Multiple Final Exam Notification

We're offering a pilot program to determine the need for creating a University policy about undergraduate students with three or more final exams in a 24-hour period. A final exam is an in-class exam offered during the final exam period (December 14 - 21 for Fall 2017). This pilot program, and the validation of your scheduled final exams, is an attempt to gauge the volume of students in this situation.
Students who complete our Multiple Final Exam Notification form will work with their instructors to attempt to reschedule one of the exams, which may not be possible. Instructors are not obligated to change an exam date for students in this situation, but the earlier the situation is identified, the more likely an option can be offered.

To participate in this pilot program, students must complete the Multiple Final Exam Notification form no later than November 15 for Fall 2017 final exams. Completion of the form will require uploading a syllabus for each class with final exams during the 24-hour period.
