Final Examination Notes

  1. The final examination schedule is fixed and cannot be changed.
  2. The final exam time is part of the required instructional time and should be in the same location where the course is held.
  3. Remote synchronous/ mostly asynchronous courses should meeting remotely during the schedule.
  4. Remote asynchronous courses should offer a 3-hour asynchronous exam submission window on Exam Day 1, 3-6 pm.
  5. Anyone assigned as an instructor or any student who enrolls in a course is expected to attend all regular classes and the final examination as scheduled.

Special Sessions

Summer School offers special session courses having unique deadlines for registration, drop-add, and other administrative processes. These include Maymester, short session courses, and field courses. For counting enrollments and credit hours and reporting costs and receipts, they are combined with data for the regular session to which they are designated. For example, a course that begins in First Session but ends in Second Session would be designated in Second Session when grades are posted. Faculty are nominated and paid in the appropriate session for their courses.

These courses might have different beginning and ending dates from the regular sessions. Contact Summer School for arranging these separate calendars at
