The dates and times of final exams can be viewed at Course Listings, WebSTAC (student class schedules), and WebFAC (faculty courses and rosters).

Exam dates and times may vary by school and/or program–especially for graduate and pre-professional programs.

An exam code of No Final, Paper/Project/Take Home, Final Critique, See Department, or See Instructor means that an in-class final exam is not scheduled during the final exam period. Check with the instructor for details about end-of-term requirements.

Students are encouraged to check the final exam schedule during registration to determine how many exams are scheduled on a given day. Before arranging end-of-term travel plans, students should verify final exam dates and times with instructors. Students who may miss classes, assignments, or exams to observe religious holidays should refer to the University’s Religious Holiday Absence Policy.

The final exam is held in the regularly scheduled classroom when possible. However, students and instructors should check WebSTAC and WebFAC for updates on exam locations.
