Final Exam Schedule 2004-2005

Message from Dean Schwaller:
According to the Senate Committee on Educational Policy, the final exam is the last exam of the term, whether or not that exam is cumulative. The intent of the rule is to avoid having significant exams during the last week when out of class work would also normally be due. Faculty may not schedule an exam in the last week of class in lieu of an exam in the finals week. Thus, while a unit exam during the last week of class plus a cumulative final during final's week is discouraged, it would be acceptable. Additionally, lab practicums may be given during the last week of classes. Term papers, take home tests, and other out-of-class work that is assigned before the last week of class can be expected to be due the last day of the regular class. The rule also seeks to exclude take-home final exams being handed out and due during the last week, in effect the same thing as having a final exam the last week. Ideally, faculty would accept out-of-class work on the day of the scheduled final exam, if no final exam is scheduled.

The intent of the above rules is that work during the last week of class and during finals week is spread out as much as possible.

Additional Information

The time of the examination is based on the hours and days the class is regularly scheduled. Unless otherwise announced, the exam will be held in the classroom in which the course is taught.

In determining the hours and days of final exams from examination schedules use these guidelines:

—Go by the lecture hour rather than the laboratory or discussion hours.

—Follow the MWF sequence if your class meets on any or all of these days.

—Follow the TTh sequence if your class meets on any or all of these days.

—Courses that begin at 9:00, 11:00, 1:00, 3:00 or 5:00 will follow the TTh sequence but may be held in an alternate classroom.

—Use the first full class hour if your class meets more than one continuous hour.

—For courses that do not run for a full semester, the final exam shall be administered (or due, in the case of out-of-class examinations) on the last day of the course.

Highlights from the University Senate Policy

All classes shall follow a standard examination schedule. For courses that do not run for a full semester, the final examination shall be administered (or due, in the case of take-home or other out-of-class examinations) on the last day of the course.

Instructors are not permitted to hold their final examinations ahead of the regularly scheduled time except under such unusual circumstances as may be approved by the Senate Committee on Educational Policy.

There shall be no other exceptions from the University final examination schedule unless (1) proposed by the instructor, (2) with the unanimous consent, via written secret ballot, of the students, and (3) with the concurrence of the division chair. The Registrar’s Office shall be notified of any change. This prohibition precludes moving a final examination from a scheduled time to the last or earlier meetings of the class (with the exception of take-home or other out-of-class finals, which may be distributed prior to the final exam week but which may not be due before the scheduled final exam for that course.

Students with final examination conflicts, or with three (or more) final examinations in one calendar day, or who have agreed to reschedule a final (in accord with the provisions of section 3, above) will be expected to make the appropriate rescheduling arrangements with the instructors by the end of the second week of the term so that conflicts will be eliminated. Instructors must agree to give an alternative final examination to any student having examination conflicts or three (or more) examinations in one calendar day.
