Final Examination Schedule Conflicts

Every instructor should be prepared to work with students who have conflicts with the final exam schedule if they meet the criteria outlined in the policy below.

Final Examination Schedule Conflicts
With the consent of the academic department, the individual faculty instructor has authority to manage students who have conflicts with the final examination schedule. A student with three final examinations scheduled within a twenty-four (24) hour period* or two examinations at the same time may petition to reschedule one exam to a different time or day. If one of the conflicting final examinations is a mass exam, it should be rescheduled first.

*The twenty-four (24) hour period begins at the start time of the first exam.

This is an example of three exams within a twenty-four (24) hour period that may be rescheduled:
     12:00 p.m. on Monday (First exam)
     3:00 p.m. on Monday (Second exam)
     8:00 a.m. on Tuesday (Third exam)


This is an example of three exams that do not fall within a twenty-four (24) hour period and would not fit within this policy:
     8:00 a.m. on Monday (First exam)
     12:00 p.m. on Monday (Second exam)
     8:00 a.m. on Tuesday (Third exam)

    1. Print out a copy of the final exam schedule.
    2. Print out and complete the petition to reschedule.

        (Remember: If you have a mass exam, it should be rescheduled first.)
