* Please refer to the College of Engineering (COE) Schedule available in the COE Student Services Office or at http://www.eng.fsu.edu/current/exam_schedule.html.

University Final Examination Policy

  • Final examinations in all undergraduate courses are discretionary within any given department. If a department chooses to give a final exam, the exam schedule must be followed as published.
  • All students enrolled in a course having a final examination, including graduating seniors and graduate students, are required to take the exam at the time scheduled.
  • Scheduling a final examination or a test in lieu of a final exam at any time other than the regularly scheduled final exam period is a violation of University policy.
  • Unless an exam is given during the final examination period, no test may be given during the last week of classes.

Courses meeting every day at the same hour and classes meeting for more than one time period will hold examinations according to the time and day of the first scheduled class meeting of the week. For example, a class meeting for the first period on Tuesday and for the first and second period on Thursday will hold its examination at the time scheduled for the first period on the Tuesday, Thursday class listing.

Exceptions to the Examination Policy for an Individual Undergraduate Student

Approval by the appropriate academic dean is required for an individual undergraduate student seeking an exception to the examination policy. The student must first receive written permission from the instructor if he/she is willing to give a make-up exam at a specified time within the exam week. The student must then petition the dean, giving the reason for the requested exception, and supported by the instructor's written permission. The dean will then notify the instructor in writing if the approval is granted.

Make-up examinations are permitted for an undergraduate student when justified by illness, conflicting examinations, four or more examinations within a twenty-four hour period, or certain emergencies. Arrangements should be made prior to the scheduled exam.

In case of conflicting examinations, block examinations take precedence over examinations scheduled by class meeting time. In the case of conflicts that cannot be otherwise resolved, the course meeting earlier by day and time takes precedence over a course meeting later.

Exceptions to the Examination Policy for an Undergraduate Class

Courses that utilize the University Assessment Center for a block exam, or which are otherwise limited to specific days and times because of seating and scheduling constraints, will take precedence in the case of final exam schedule conflicts. It is the student's responsibility to identify such conflicts as early as possible and to notify all instructors in advance so that accommodations may be made.

No instructor of an undergraduate course may give a final examination at a time other than that which appears on the Web site of the Office of the University Registrar unless he or she has obtained prior approval from the Undergraduate Policy Committee. Such approval must be requested, in writing, at least three weeks prior to the scheduled final exam. To reschedule a final examination without such approval places the instructor in jeopardy of administrative reprimand by his/her dean and the Vice-President for Academic Affairs.

Undergraduate Distance Learning Exams

If the instructor of an online course requires a final exam, the instructor shall have the prerogative to set the window during which a final exam is administered provided that the window is within the University's official final exam period. A final exam window must be disclosed in the course syllabus. Make-up examinations are permitted for an undergraduate student when justified by illness, conflicting examinations, four or more examinations in a 24-hour period, or for certain emergencies. It is the student's responsibility to identify if a conflict exists and immediately make arrangements with the instructor to take the exam at an alternate time during the University's official final exam period. If a student has such conflicts, the final exams of the student's non-online classes shall have priority and the time of the online exam will be the first exam subject to adjustment. If such agreement cannot be achieved between the student and the instructor, then the academic deans of the units housing the various courses will consult to achieve agreement.

This explanation is intended only to clarify existing University exam policy for online classes and all provisions of University exam policy that do not conflict with what is stated above remain in effect.
