Final Exam Schedule

Final exams are not always administered during the usual class time, though they typically take place in the same classroom where the class was held. Day classes have specific examination periods assigned to them; evening classes will often schedule exams during the regular meeting time (of the class) during examination week.

Note: Examination week is the week following the end of classes. Students are expected to be available through the end of examination week. For final examination schedules for winter, summer, and special sessions, refer to the course syllabus.
