Course examinations are given at the option of the instructor. If midterms are to be given, they are normally scheduled during a regular class period at approximately the eighth week of the semester.
Final examinations are scheduled by the registrar to be held at the end of the semester. The final examination period commences after study days as noted in the college calendar. Normally, final examinations are scheduled for Monday evening and all day Tuesday through Saturday following the end of classes.
A student should not regularly have more than three final examinations in any specific day. In the instance where this occurs, students should bring documentation (i.e., registration record and exam schedule) to the attention of the professors involved, who may make alternative arrangements in individual cases. Professors who find that a substantial number of students have such conflicts may wish to consult with the registrar and reschedule their examinations.
In those cases when the examination schedule must be postponed or interrupted because of external forces (e.g., weather), examinations will be rescheduled as soon as feasible.
