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.

Last day to Resign from 15-week Standard Session

The last day to resign from a 15-week Standard Session Course is Friday, April 19, 2019 by 11:59 p.m. EDT.

Before resigning a course:

  • Student should discuss with course instructor
  • Student should speak with an academic advisor to discuss the pros and cons of resigning a course.
  • Student should consider if h/she will need to register for the course in a future semester. If so, then h/she will want to see if the course is listed among the Course Enrollment Control List.  If it is, then a student may need to repeat during a Summer or Winter Session.

How to Resign a Course

Students electing to Resign from a course will log into their HUB Student Center.

  1. In the HUB Academic section they will select Enroll link.
  2. They will next be asked to select the semester, or session, for which they want to resign a course.
  3. For the selected semester, a student will now see a listing of all of the courses in which they are registered. Next to each course there will be a check box. Select the course to be resigned.
  4. Click the Drop Selected Classes button.
  5. Click the Finish Dropping button.
  6. To confirm that the course has been dropped, go to the HUB Academic section and click the View My Grades link.
  7. Select the appropriate semester/session and find the course. In the Grade Column, you will see that an “R” is listed.  A resigned course does not have a grade point value, and therefore is not used in the calculation of your grade point average (gpa).
  8. If you receive financial aid, a resigned course will be used in the calculation of a student’s Satisfactory Academic Progress.
  9. Before you resign a course, and if you receive financial aid, discuss implications of resigning a course upon your financial aid eligibility.  Go to 1Capen and ask to speak with the next available financial aid advisor.
