Final Exam Policy
Please review the final exam schedule carefully and retain it for your information. Each student is responsible for verifying the date, time and place of his/her examinations and for taking each exam as scheduled by the law school.
To view your final exam dates, visit eCommons > Current Schedules.
During the exam period, students may check the monitors throughout the school two hours prior to each scheduled exam.
The use and/or possession of any unauthorized electronic device during an examination is strictly prohibited and will be treated as a violation of the student code of conduct. Any authorization must be granted in writing by your professor, Dean Needham, Dean Powers, or Dean Ruebner.
Rescheduling of exams may be permitted in the following circumstances:
- Conflicts: Exam conflicts are defined as (1) two exams that start within a 23 hour period and (2) three examinations taking place within four consecutive calendar days.
- Disability: Exam accommodations may be granted after the student has contacted Melinda Moore, the Disability Accommodations Administrator, (312.427.2737 ext. 773 or firstname.lastname@example.org), completed the disability accommodation process, and received approval for accommodations. Students will receive an email from Ms. Moore if they have been granted accommodations for exams.
- Personal Emergency: Includes hospitalization or a death in the family. Authority to grant/deny accommodation requests resides within the Office of Academic Services. Documentation is required. Please contact Jim Farrell at email@example.com for rescheduling exams due to personal emergencies.
Students who fail to take an examination or complete requirements for their course will receive a grade of "WF," unless prior accommodations have been granted due to personal hardship. If accommodations have been granted, the grade of "NG" (incomplete) shall stand on the student record for no longer than one semester. The grade of Incomplete shall automatically convert to an "F" at the end of classes for the following semester unless the student has taken, before such date, the examination or has arranged for a definite date to take the examination.
Rescheduling a Final Exam
Exam conflicts are defined as:
- Two exams that start within a 23-hour period.
- Three exams taking place within four consecutive calendar days.
An email correspondence will be sent by Jim Farrell, Verification Administrator, approximately 1 month prior to the start of the examination period. Any exam conflicts will be processed at this point. If you have any concerns or questions, please feel free to contact Jim at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please remember the following:
- Do not contact your professor if you have an exam conflict.
- Do not make any plans to leave for vacation prior to rescheduling your exam.
