Final exam dates, locations and times are assigned to classes twice a semester on the following days, so revisit your exam schedule in the portal a few weeks before finals to check for updates:

  • Spring 2020 - Saturday, December 7, 2019 and updated Saturday, February 22, 2020

Always confirm your final exam schedule with your instructor or the academic department before finals week begins.

Final Exam Policy

In lecture courses, no final examination may be scheduled by an instructor prior to the regularly scheduled time. Any student who finds it impossible to take a final examination on the date scheduled must make arrangements in advance with the instructor either to take the examination at another time prior to the deadline for reporting grades, or request that a grade of Incomplete be assigned, and must then follow the regulations concerning the removal of the Incomplete. No exceptions will be made to these regulations without the written approval of the instructor, the department chair, and the dean of the college in which the course is offered.

Finals Week

  • Fall Semester 2019:  Wednesday-Tuesday, December 11-17, 2019
  • Spring 2020: Saturday-Friday, May 9-15, 2020
  • Summer 2020: Final exams are held on the last class meeting. Confirm with your instructor.
