Finals Week

Only final exams are given during Finals Week. No make-up tests will be given. In the last week of regular classes – the week before Finals Week – make-up exams will be limited to exams missed during the last week of regular classes. If you must take a make-up from earlier in the semester during the last week of classes or during Finals Week, you must make arrangements with your instructor to take it with him/her. Before the last week of classes and Finals Week, we will give make up tests from any time during the semester.
