Final exam schedule policies

Build your class schedule to avoid exam conflicts

Students must arrange their class schedule to avoid conflicts, and must not register for classes that result in two examinations at the same time. Additionally, students should not register for courses that result in three examinations on one day. Anyone registering for more than two exams in one day will be expected to take the examinations as scheduled.

Determine date and time of examination

Location of exams

Examinations will be held in the room where the lecture section of the class regularly meets, unless otherwise announced. If the class meets in different rooms at different times, the room used by the earliest class meeting in the week determines the exam room.

Evening courses

Exams for evening courses (meeting at 5:00 pm and after) are held on the first regularly scheduled class meeting time during final exam week in the regularly scheduled room, unless otherwise announced.


Instructors are responsible for indicating their exam schedule on course syllabi.

Default exam days/times change each quarter

For example, the exam time for an 11:00 am class will be different from Fall to Winter to Spring.
