F-3: CONFLICT FINAL EXAMINATIONS

Procedure:

The Registrar's office is responsible for establishing the final examination schedule. Every effort is made to establish a final examination schedule that is free of conflicts. Invariably, some conflicts arise. Any student with a direct final examination conflict (two or more examinations scheduled at the same time) must file a request for a conflict examination. Any student with an overload final examination conflict (three or more examinations scheduled on any one calendar day, or three final examinations scheduled on consecutive exam periods) may file a request for a conflict examination. The filing period will be three weeks in length. The beginning and ending dates of the filing period will be determined as necessary, by each campus registrar and published in the campus academic calendar.

Students must file a conflict final examination request during the designated time period and at the place specified by the campus Registrar. Conflict final examination requests will not be accepted after the close of the three-week filing period.

Academic departments are notified by the Registrar's office of the time and place for the conflict final examination, together with the names of the students who have been assigned to the conflict examination. Faculty members are requested to announce in class the time and place of the conflict final examination, if any, and to identify the students assigned thereto.
