Scheduling of Final Exams

From Dr. Jean Morrison, University Provost and Chief Academic Officer

As we begin a new semester, I would like to remind everyone that, per University policy, the final examination for a course must be given only during its scheduled exam period and time slot and not during a regular class meeting or on a reading day, even if the faculty member and all students in a course agree to such a change.

The purpose of this policy is to ensure that our students have the appropriate time and space to prepare for finals during the designated study period. For further information regarding the scheduling of final exams, please see the website of the University Registrar (

I want to thank you in advance for your cooperation with this effort and to wish everyone a productive, successful, and healthy spring semester ahead.
