Have you checked your Final Exam Schedule?

No?  Then follow these steps to find your Exam Schedule:

  1. Go to Academic Section of  your HUB Student Center
  2. Click on the Other academic drop down arrow.
  3. From the Other academic list, select Exam Schedule
  4. Double click the Double Arrow icon next to the Other academic box.

A final exam conflict exists when a student has:

  • Three or more exams scheduled on the same day
  • Two exams occurring at the same time
  • When a student’s exam occurs contemporaneously with his or her commencement ceremony for spring or summer conferral

Students who find themselves with an unavoidable exam conflict should contact the instructors of the courses and explain the conflict in exams. Usually one instructor will be able to schedule an alternate time for the student to take their exam. If students are unable to arrange the re-scheduling of examinations with the faculty, undergraduate students should contact the appropriate dean’s office and graduate students should contact their academic department.
