    • There shall be a break of at least 24 hours, designated Reading Day(s), at the beginning of Finals Week. No required examinations, tests, or quizzes may be given on Reading Day(s), to allow students to review for upcoming finals and to complete projects.

    • Students should confirm final exams with their instructors before making travel arrangements.
    • Students with three or more exams on the same day may contact their instructors to request a make-up or alternate exam, at the discretion of the instructor. The Registrar’s Office does not change final exam days/times per student requests. Contact your instructors to request an alternate exam time.
    • Students with direct final exam conflicts (same day/time) should contact their instructors to request a make-up or alternate exam time. One of your instructors will need to arrange an alternate exam time to be administered during the six day final exam period. Contact your instructors to arrange an alternate exam time.
