Final Exam Scheduling

Final examinations (policy 44-00, policy C-5) fulfill two important academic objectives: student integration of instructional material, and end-of-semester evaluation of student achievement. However, valid means other than the final examination also accomplish these objectives (e.g. term paper, final project report, take-home examinations, etc.). Course instructors determine which of these methods is best.

No comprehensive examinations are to be scheduled during the last week of classes. Quizzes and narrowly limited tests worth no more than 10% of the course grade may be given. The due date for alternative means of evaluation (term papers, final projects, etc.) worth more than 10% of the course grade should be during the final exam period.

Requesting Final Exams

The final exam schedule is released during or near the fifth week of the semester by the Office of the University Registrar. Colleges must request a final exam for a class in LionPATH in order to be included on the final exam schedule.
