Filing Period Deadline for Overload Final Exam Conflicts Extended

October 26, 2016 -- The deadline to file an overload final exam conflict for the fall 2016 semester has been extended from October 31, 2016 to November 7, 2016.

Students at the University Park, Behrend, and Harrisburg campuses can file a final exam conflict resolution request by completing the Overload Conflict Exam Request Form on the Office of the University Registrar website. Students at all other Penn State campuses should contact their campus registrar to request relief from an exam overload conflict.

An overload conflict occurs if a student has three exams scheduled within one calendar day or in three consecutive exam periods (University Faculty Senate Policy 44-25: Conflict Final Examinations). Students may choose to take their exams as scheduled or may choose to have a final exam rescheduled. Requests for rescheduling must be made before the filing deadline. If a request is made, the Office of the University Registrar determines which of the three exams will be rescheduled and notifies the student and the instructor by email.

Students can view their fall 2016 final exam schedule in the LionPATH Student Center by selecting “Exam Schedule” from the “Other Academic” drop-down menu.
