Final Examination Schedule

Final examinations are given at the end of each semester. No deferred examinations are given except by written excuse from the Dean of Students. The faculty has agreed that no exams will be given and no papers will be due the Wednesday to Sunday of the week prior to finals. No papers will be due during finals week unless there is not a final exam in the course, in which case the paper will be due at the end of the regularly scheduled exam time for that course. Classes not included in the schedule below will be examined during the final exam week under special arrangements made by the instructor. Exams are held in the same classrooms they met in during the semester.
