|The OUR Schedules department manages the creation and publication of the Final Exam Schedule. Schools are required to indicate whether a class is holding an exam via CC50 in UIS during the first week of the semester or, alternatively, instructors may directly communicate this information through the Faculty/Staff Link. Exams are scheduled, assigned classrooms, and published on the Student Link by the end of the first month of classes.
Administrators are encouraged to refer to the Final Exam Policy when scheduling exams. Final Exam additions, changes, and cancellations may be requested by completing the following form. Please note that Dean’s Approval is required for exam day or time changes submitted after the Exam Schedule is published. Approval may be forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org. Schools are responsible for notifying all enrolled students when the exam day or time changes.

final exam Matrix
|The Final Exam Matrix, below, maps a tentative schedule until the current semester’s exam schedule is finalized approximately one month into term. In some cases (e.g. group exams comprised of several class sections), the matrix is not followed and the official exam schedule will vary from the proposed matrix table below. Students are encouraged to verify final exam dates and times with their instructors before arranging end-of-semester travel plans.
Classes that do not follow these standard matrix times are considered Non-Block, with exam dates and times for these classes determined by the school/college offering the course. Some highly utilized Non-Blocks will occasionally be included in the exam matrix, where beneficial to student scheduling. For more information, including that surrounding exam proctoring, please review the Final Exam Policy.
Please note: In all cases, final exam times on the Student Link are correct.
