Final examinations are scheduled at the end of each semester. A printed schedule of final examinations is released about one month in advance of the first day of examinations each semester. Common final examinations may be scheduled in those courses with more than one section of the same course. These examinations, based on a common course outline, are also scheduled in or near the regular examination period. Faculty should adhere to the final examination schedule that is published and distributed by the Registrar’s office. Any deviation from the published schedule must be approved by the appropriate Dean and the Vice President for Academic Affairs.
