Exam Schedule

Fall Semester 2022

Please Note Section 7.02. The following are the only grounds on which a student may request to be excused from an examination:

a) The student has two examinations scheduled to begin on the same day; or

b) An emergency has arisen; or

c) It has become impossible or impractical for the student to take the examination at the scheduled time; or

d) The student has three exams in a row in the same week.

The student must request the excused absence from the Associate Dean prior to the exam. The Associate Dean must discuss the request with the instructor involved. It is within the Dean’s discretion to grant or deny the request.

LLM Students

Please note rule four of the LLM Academic Rules:

LL.M. students will be permitted one additional hour for each examination.  This does not apply to take-home exams.

LL.M.students may bring a hard copy translation dictionary into exams unless otherwise instructed by the professor. The dictionary may NOT have any notations or handwriting.

A student may defer an examination if one of the following applies:

  • The student has two exams scheduled on the same day; or
  • The student has two exams scheduled on two consecutive days.

In order to request the deferral of an exam under this rule, the student must complete a Deferred Exam Request Form and submit it to the Registrar by the due date set for the semester. The Associate Dean or her delegate will have discretion to decide which exam will be deferred after ascertaining the student’s preferences. Deferred exams will be administered on dates designated for deferred exams during exam periods and will occur after the original dates of the exams.

An examination may also be rescheduled in the event of an emergency or if it has become impossible or impracticable for a student to take the exam at the scheduled time. These are very rare and extreme circumstances that must be approved in advance by the Registrar.

A student whose absence from an examination is not excused by the Dean shall receive a grade of "UWF" (Unauthorized Withdrawal, Failing) in the course.

All exams begin at 9:30 a.m.
