Have you looked at your HUB Final Exam Schedule?

Final Exam Schedule

Your final exam schedule is available in your HUB Student Center (via MyUB).

Student Responsibility for Exam Conflicts

Beginning in the fall 2014 term final exam information will be available one week prior to the start of fall classes.

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.

Final Exam Scheduled for More Than One Classroom

If your final exam is assigned to more than one classroom, contact your instructor during the last week of classes to determine where to report for the exam.
