Final exams schedule and conflicts

Final Exams Schedule [PDF Form icon 15K]
Please check for changes prior to your exam. Changes are indicated by Bold Type .

Students who have conflicts between two or more exams given at the same time will resolve the matter of who will give the make-up exam in the following manner:

  1. The lower level course has precedence over an upper level course. For example, if a student has a conflict between a 2000 and a 4000 level course, the instructor of the 4000 level course must give a make-up exam.
  2. If both courses are the same level, the student should approach each instructor to determine if one of the instructors will give a make-up exam.
  3. If both instructors refuse to give a make-up exam when requested under the circumstances of item #2, the student should see the department scheduler. It will be that scheduler's responsibility to call his/her counterpart in the other department to determine who should give the make-up exam.
  4. If the two schedulers cannot reach a compromise, the scheduler originally approached by the student should call the Associate Dean of his/her school and ask the Dean to flip a coin and the loser of the toss will have to give a make-up exam.

If you have more than two exams in one day...

Any student with more than two final exams in one day can request that a conflict exam for the third exam be given on a different day. The conflict exam policy is above
