When are finals?
See Academic Calendar for final exam period and reading days by semester.
Classroom courses are presumed to include a final exam or assessed activity that students undertake during the final exam period for a minimum of 50 minutes per credit hour. Courses that do not include a final exam or assessed activity of at least 50 minutes per credit hour during the exam period must assign additional out-of-class work and/or class time to make up the shortfall. See Academic Rule 1.06, Section A of the Law School Catalog for the definition and determination of credit hours.
Instructors may choose exams, papers, or courtroom or other practice-based exercises as assessments. Exams may be an “in-session” exam, which is an exam administered or due before classes end for the designated session (e.g., fall or spring semester or summer session), or it may be a “final” exam, which is an exam administered or due during the final exam period. No exams may be due or administered during the designated reading period between the end of classes and the start of the exam period. Papers and practice-based exercises are exempt from this timing rule and may be due or administered any time during the term.
|Number of Course Credits||Minimum Length of Exam or Assessment|
|2||1 hour 40 minutes|
|3||2 hours 30 minutes|
