Winter Final Exam Schedule

Winter 2021

March 13, 15-19, 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. Exams for one-unit lecture or seminar sections are held during the last regular class meeting to avoid scheduling conflicts. This includes one-unit lectures that are 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
Instructors may choose to offer their final assessment any time during final exam week, based on coordination with students.
Note a student conflict may exist with a synchronous course. Instructors should announce exam time at start of the term and make arrangements with students if accommodation is required
