    (COMMON COURSE GRID)

If your class begins at  5:30 pm or later, or if your class meets on  Saturdays, final examinations will be given on the  first day of the week the class normally met in the term (i.e. a class on Mon & Wed at 5:30 p.m. would have finals on Monday at 5:30 p.m.).

If your class meets only once a week, final examinations will be given during the regularly scheduled day for class (i.e. a class on Thursday that meets at 12 p.m. would have finals on Thursday at 12 p.m.)

Faculty: If your class does not fit into this schedule or if special arrangements are necessary, please contact the Office of Instruction.

Students: If your class time does not fit into this schedule please contact your instructor for special arrangements or alternative times. Students taking  online courses must confirm with their instructor the requirements and time intervals for finals.

TO HOLD EXAMINATIONS AT ANY TIMES OTHER THAN THOSE LISTED ABOVE, PRIOR APPROVAL FROM THE VICE PRESIDENT OF INSTRUCTION AND STUDENT SERVICES IS NECESSARY.

NOTE: Students will not be required to take more than three final examinations in one day. Should students find themselves in this situation, they should contact the instructors to make other arrangements.
