Final exam times

Your final exam time is scheduled following the University's scheduling examinations policy. Always confirm your final exam time with your instructor. 


  • Final exams: Thursday December, 17 through Saturday, December 19, and Monday, December 21 through Wednesday, December 23
    Study days: Sunday, December 20

    University policy states that no final exams may be scheduled on study days.

    Using the chart below, find the scheduled time and days for your lecture, seminar, or colloquium. The final exam time for that course will be listed in the next column. Some guidelines:

    • If your course meets for more than three days per week or on an unusual schedule that isn’t either MWF or TTh, use the MWF exam time that matches your course’s scheduled time.
    • If your course meets at different times on different days, use the time from the earliest day of the week that your course meets to find your exam time.
    • If your course is listed as a common exam, that takes precedence and is the official final exam time for your course. Check common exam times below.
    • In rare circumstances, a final exam time will change because of an instructor’s request. Always verify your final exam time with your course instructor.

    All final exams for Fall 2020 will be conducted online. All rules set forth in the Final Exam Regulations below, apply to all online final exams.

    • All synchronous classes holding synchronous online exams will follow the published Standard Final Exam Schedule.
    • All synchronous classes holding asynchronous online exams should ensure the due date for their exam is not earlier than the published Standard Final Exam Schedule day/time.
    • All asynchronous classes holding synchronous online exams should take their final exam on Thursday, December 17, 2020.
    • All asynchronous classes holding asynchronous online exams should ensure the due date for their exam is no later than Wednesday, December 23.

Such a request must be presented at least two weeks before the examination period begins.

    If your instructor has requested a variation from the official final exam schedule, he or she must (1) give a special make-up exam to any students who have exam conflicts, or (2) give three (or more) exams in one calendar day.

    If you miss a final, an I, an F, or an N is recorded, depending upon your standing at the time. To make up the exam, you must obtain the instructor's permission.
