Final Exam Requests

Requests for Waivers and Alternate Exam Times or Locations

Request Procedures

Beginning in Fall 2017, alternate exams may be requested online.  In addition, exam waivers (requests to NOT offer an exam or to offer an alternate format) may also be submitted online.  The online exam request form will be available on Wednesday, September 20, and will close on Wednesday, October 11.  Please review the information below to learn how to request an exam location or time.

Training Sessions

Because this is a new process, the Registrar's Office will offer open training sessions for faculty and staff.  The training sessions will focus on both the faculty submission process, and the department process.  You do not need to sign up or RSVP for a drop-in session.  You may always stop in the Registrar's Office to receive assistance as well.

Final Exam Policies

Final examinations are required. An instructor may request an exception to this policy from the department chair. The chair may grant such request if: (1) the nature of the course makes such action desirable; or (2) an adequate series of other evaluation procedures is substituted. An instructor may have a policy of exempting students who meet specified criteria from final examinations: the policy and criteria shall be stated and placed on file with the department chair.

Final examinations or last examinations of the course are given during final examination week (except for examinations in quarter courses, which end in the middle of the semester.) No examinations, quizzes, or tests of any type should be given during the last week of classes prior to the published final examination week. Any deviation from this policy must be approved in advance by the appropriate department chair and school dean.

Approved by the Faculty Senate, Feb. 11, 1977; subsequently approved by Vice President Corey
