Final Exam Schedule Fall 2019



Final examinations are scheduled for lecture and lecture lab courses only during a one week period at the end of each semester. Examination periods are two hours in length. Critiques are scheduled during the days after classes end each semester and prior to the start of the final examinations. The University has a policy prohibiting the administration of any final examinations during the last "instructional" week of the semester in place of an examination during the scheduled exam week. Critiques are prohibited from being administered during the final exam period. No student is required to take more than three final examinations or critiques in a given day. If, because of this policy, it is necessary for a student to have any examination rescheduled, arrangements must be made with their instructor and then contact the East Falls Registrar's Office if a solution can not be reached no later than one week in advance of the start of exam week. If a student must miss a final examination, notice should be given to the course instructor or, if the instructor is unavailable, to the school administrative assistant (or the School of Continuing and Professional Studies) in advance of the scheduled exam.


The East Falls Registrar’s Office is responsible for establishing the final examination schedule, which is created at the beginning of the semester. Individual schools are responsible for creating the critique schedules which usually become available toward the end of the semester. Every effort is made to establish a final examination schedule that is free of conflicts. Invariably, some conflicts arise. Any student with a direct final examination conflict (two or more examinations scheduled at the same time) should try to resolve the issue with their instructor and then contact the East Falls Registrar's Office if a solution can not be reached. Any student with a direct critique conflict should try to resolve the issue with their instructor and then the dean of their school if a solution can not be reached.


For specific exam times, first check to see if your course is listed on the Fall 2019 Common Exam Schedule. If it is not, please review the Fall 2019 Final Exam Schedule. In order to determine when your final exam will be held, locate the course section number. Then read across the row to see the day, time and location of your final exam.


Exams will be held in the same classroom in which your class currently meets. Critiques and Common Exam rooms will be posted.


Students will be notified by their faculty which courses require critiques. Critiques are not part of the final schedule, but will be held during the "Reading/Review Days" (December 10 - December 12).
