Final Exams for Fall semester will continue to be administered on Canvas for in-person, hy-flex and remote courses. The Exam Schedule is posted at the link below. Any potential updates to the exam schedule will be reflected by the “current as of…” description. The exam period for Fall is December 1st – 13th.

Information about all other final exams will be posted in Canvas. All other final exams will be administered via the self-scheduled or take-home model. You will have the entirety of the exam period (December 1st – 13th) to take those exams, and you may take them at any time of the day, unless otherwise directed by your professor. These exams will also be administered via Canvas.
We will not be offering the morning and evening windows for in-person self-scheduled exams. Unless noted otherwise your self-schedule exam will be considered an “off-campus” exam that can be taken at any time of the day, as long as it is done during the exam period window. If you’d like to come to campus to take your self-scheduled exam, you still may certainly do that, but reserving a space to take the exam is the responsibility of the student to get booked.
