Fall 2016 Final Exams
It's time to begin preparing for Fall 2016 Final Exams.
Please review the course sections scheduled for those subjects for which your department is administrative home and submit their requested final exam assignment needs. Each department is responsible for submitting their own courses' final exam assignment needs, including both undergraduate and graduate level courses. We ask that you submit final exam needs for ALL course sections. If a course section does not require a final exam assignment, please indicate such on the Final Exam Needs form.
Fall 2016 final exam dates. Final exam week is December 12 - 16, 2016.
Submission. Final exam needs are submitted online via the "Final Exam Needs" submission application in MAUI.
Deadline. Departments must submit their requests no later than Wednesday, August 17, 2016, 4:30pm.
Instructions and Policies. Instructions and scheduling policies are located on the Office of the Registrar's website.
- Each department is responsible for submitting final exam needs for all subjects for which their department is administrative home. This includes undergraduate and graduate level courses, and courses with or without final exam assignment needs.
- Website includes scheduling criteria by which final exam assignments will be made in the event we either receive incomplete information or we do not receive any information from a department by the submission deadline.
Incomplete submissions. Please be aware by submitting incomplete or no information, you may be unnecessarily tying up exam resources which are needed by others.
Late submissions. Requests made after the schedule has been published will require written approval from the Chair/DEO and the Dean of the department responsible for the course. All requests must include the curricular justification for the late addition or release. Note: Course sections granted final exam assignments after the schedule has been published are responsible for administering makeup final exams regardless of exam precedence rules.
Faculty review. Faculty will be able to review their final exam assignments before the schedule is published. The faculty review period is September 9 - 15, 2016.
We understand the Carver College of Medicine and the College of Dentistry, Law, and Pharmacy maintain their own final exam schedules and generally do not follow the final exam schedule set by the Office of the Registrar.
We recognize that some departments offer courses that allow undergraduate student enrollment. You can request a final exam assignment from the Office of the Registrar for these course sections in order to reduce the likelihood of exam conflicts for undergraduate students. This can potentially help limit the need for makeup final exam arrangements by your instructors.
Departments can request a final exam assignment from the Office of the Registrar by using the "Final Exam Needs" submission application in MAUI. Instructions and scheduling policies are located on the Office of the Registrar's website, if needed. Requests must be submitted Wednesday, August 17, 2016, 4:30pm.
