Frequently Asked Questions

How do I request a final exam date/time/room assignment after the final exam schedule has been published?

Any final exam requests made after the final exam schedule has been published will require the faculty member to obtain written approval from the Chair/DEO and the Associate Dean of the department responsible for the course. All requests must include the curricular justification for the late addition.  These approvals can be emailed to reg-exams@uiowa.edu.  

Once approval has been obtained, you can then submit the Final Exam Assignment Change Request Form.

Please note that course sections granted final exam assignments after the schedule has been published are responsible for administering makeup final exams regardless of exam precedence rules.

What do I enter in the Final Exam Assignment Needs Tool if the final exam will be held on the last day of class?

Fall and Spring Sessions - College of Liberal Arts and Sciences

Fall and Spring final exams for courses in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences must be given during the one-week period set aside by the University for this purpose, and final examinations must be given at the time specified on the Registrar's Final Examination Schedule.  The exam cannot be held on the last day of class.  See CLAS Examination Policies for more information. 

Fall and Spring Sessions - Business, Education, Engineering, Nursing, Public Health, University and Graduate Colleges

Fall and Spring final exams for courses in colleges that do not have a written policy should check with their academic dean's office to see if administering an exam on the last day of class is allowed.  If it is allowed, please indicate that "No Exam Assignment is Needed" on the Final Exam Assignment Needs Tool.  When no information is submitted, the Office of the Registrar automatically assigns a date and time for undergraduate courses.  Not submitting information may unnecessarily tie up exam resources that are needed by others.

Summer Sessions - All Colleges

During the summer session, faculty in all colleges have the opportunity to administer the final exam/assessment for their course either during their last regularly scheduled course meeting time or on the respective Friday final exam date for their subsession.  When an exam is administered on the last regularly scheduled course meeting time, please indicate that "No Exam Assignment is Needed" on the Final Exam Assignment Needs Tool.  When no information is submitted, the Office of the Registrar automatically assigns a date and time for undergraduate courses.  Not submitting information may unnecessarily tie up exam resources that are needed by others.
