Some courses meet during a common final time, as determined by the department.

- Friday (4-5:50 p.m.) is for make-up exams or resolving conflicts in final exam schedules.

Per Executive Memorandum 98-11 all courses are required to meet for one two-hour period during finals week for instruction or examination.

The final exam schedule is created based on the regular class meeting pattern and designed to minimize conflicts during final exam week. When circumstances require it, a faculty member may request a change to the currently scheduled day/time to another standard day/time in the Standard Final Exam Scheduling Convention.
