Important Information About Spring 2006 Exam Rescheduling.
The Student Handbook requires that you take your final exams
at the times scheduled unless you have an exam conflict (as
defined below), or you have a "serious illness or other
extraordinary or compelling reason" beyond your control.
If you have an exam conflict or believe you have other reasons
justifying the rescheduling of an exam, please complete the
Final Exam Reschedule form on the Web for Students site (log
onto your Webmail account, click on the Web for Students icon,
and navigate to the Final Exam Reschedule form). The form
will be available starting Wednesday, March 29. The deadline
for submitting an exam reschedule request is Friday, April
14. This deadline will be strictly enforced. If your request
is approved, the Registrar's office will notify you later
this semester of the rescheduled date, time, and location
of your exam.
Under the new policy adopted by the faculty in December, a
student is deemed to have an "exam conflict" if
the student has two exams at the same time, or has two or
more exams within 24 hours (e.g., exams at 8:30 a.m. and 6:00
p.m., or at 6:00 p.m. and 1:15 the following afternoon). A
conflict does not exist if two exams are scheduled exactly
24 hours apart (e.g., exams at 8:30 a.m. one morning and 8:30
a.m. the next morning).
