By faculty rules, the dates of final exams are fixed by the Registrar before the start of a semester and are indicated with the class date and time in the Banner course schedule. The dates and times of exams are arranged so that students will not be taking multiple exams at the same hour.
While individual faculty members may choose not to give a final exam in a course (substituting a final paper assignment, for example), they are not permitted to change the assigned date of a final exam. When assigning a paper or project instead of an exam, it is advisable to make the due date on the scheduled exam date whenever possible.
