Exams are scheduled, assigned classrooms, and published on the Link by the end of the first month of classes. Any changes to the exam schedule may be requested by submitting one of the following forms.

    Administrators may remove an exam from the Exam Schedule by submitting this form. Per the Provost, undergraduate final examinations should not be simply eliminated or replaced by term papers, take-home examinations, or other alternatives. Except in courses in which there is a legitimate reason not to administer a final examination, the expectation is that a final examination will be given during the time scheduled by the University Registrar.
