Summer Examination Schedule
Summer Semester Examinations
During the Summer semester, examinations are scheduled by the department offering the class. Please contact the department for more information.
Examination Policy for an Undergraduate Class Utilizing the Assessment Center
Classes 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.
Exceptions to the Examination Policy for an Individual Undergraduate Student
Approval by the Academic Dean of the college in which the class is taught 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 rescheduled final exam at a specified time during the last week of the summer session in which the class is taught. 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.
Rescheduled final examinations are permitted for an undergraduate student when justified by illness, official documented accommodations on record with the Student Disability Resource Center, conflicting examinations, three or more examinations within a twenty-four hour period, or certain emergencies. Arrangements should be made prior to the scheduled exam. If a student misses the scheduled final examination and does not have approval in advance for a rescheduled exam within the final exam week, it is up to the instructor to decide if a make-up examination will be allowed. No special dean’s office permission is required.
In case of conflicting examinations, block examinations take precedence over examinations scheduled by class meeting time and higher enrollment classes take precedence over lower enrollment classes. In the case of conflicts that cannot be otherwise resolved, the class meeting earlier by day and time takes precedence over a class meeting later.
Undergraduate Distance Learning Exams
If the instructor of an online class 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 class syllabus. Rescheduled final examinations are permitted for an undergraduate student when justified by illness, official documented accommodations on record with the Student Disability Resource Center, conflicting examinations, three or more examinations in a twenty-four 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 classes will consult to achieve agreement.
This explanation is intended only to clarify the existing University exam policy for online classes and all provisions of the University exam policy that do not conflict with what is stated above remain in effect.
