Summer Final Exam Schedules

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.
