Spring Final Exam Schedule

Spring 2021

June 5, 7-11, 2021

This exam schedule is for lecture and seminar sections of a course. Exams for activity, laboratory, and discussion sections are held during the last regular class meeting. One-unit lecture or seminar sections will have the final exam at the last regular class meeting to avoid scheduling conflicts. This includes one-unit lectures that are a part of a multi-component course. 

Exams will be held in the regularly assigned classroom on the date and time indicated below. Synchronous exams will be held virtually on the date and time indicated below. 

Lecture and Seminar sections meeting 4 or 5 days a week follow the MWF final exam time.

Common Final Exams may only be requested for 3 or more sections of the same course. See final exam policy guidelines.

Instructors requesting to change a final exam time must obtain approval from the Department Head/Chair and the College Dean at least 2 weeks prior to the final exam week.

Common Finals may be requested for the Saturday preceding Final Exam Week.

Exam Times for Asynchronous Class Sections
Faculty teaching asynchronous courses are strongly encouraged to give asynchronous final assessments. Doing so has several advantages:

  • It helps students who chose to take an asynchronous class because they have an inflexible or unpredictable work schedule.
  • It helps students who chose to take an asynchronous class because classes are in the middle of the night in their time zone. 
  • It prevents time conflicts with other finals.

If a synchronous final must be given, faculty can choose to give said final on the Saturday preceding finals week using a standard final exam time block (7:10-10:00 AM, 10:10-1:00 PM, 1:10-4:00 PM, or 4:10-7:00 PM) or in one of the 7:10-10:00 PM time slots M, T, W, or R of finals week. 

Students should be informed of the time and date of the final exam as soon as possible, and no later than the first day of class. 

If a student has a time conflict between a final for a synchronous/in-person course and an asynchronous course, the instructor of the asynchronous course must offer the student an alternate time to take the final exam.
