Final Exams

The Final Exam Schedule is Published on the Office of the Registrar website,

The Faculty Code states:

"The official examination schedule should be followed; and the instructor may not depart from the schedule."

LSA faculty are expected to follow this policy. Final exams may not be scheduled during regular instructional class time or during Study Days—including on the last day of class—regardless of whether they are called "final exams." The Faculty Code allows for the possibility that an individual student might need to take the final earlier or later than the designated time, and such is possible by mutual agreement of instructor and student; but there may not be a class vote, or similar action, to cancel the regularly scheduled time of the exam and substitute another time.

If an instructor wishes to request an official change to the time of a final exam, he/she must contact the Registrar's Offices, Suite 5000 LSA Building or via email to

If an instructor, with permission of the Registrar and Dean, changes the published assigned time of the exam, any student who wishes to take the exam at the assigned time must be allowed to do so.

If any student is assigned four examinations during the same day, the student can request exam relief by contacting the University Registrar, seeking rearrangement of one exam.
