Final Exams

Policy

Exam Preparation Days and the Final Examination Period are to be protected for their intended purposes. No other activities or events will be scheduled on campus. Any review sessions during this time must be voluntary.

Scheduled final examinations are to be administered according to the published Final Examination Schedule below as to date and time. (No exceptions to this policy will be granted unless approved in writing by the department chair.) Finals are not to be given or taken early. Second-term class examinations will be given at the time shown in the schedule. First-term examinations will be given during the last regular class period.

If illness or other uncontrollable circumstances prevent the taking of an examination at the scheduled time, the student is responsible to inform the class instructor as soon as possible. The instructor may give the grade Incomplete, depending on the circumstances. The incomplete cannot be given unless the student and the instructor together prepare a contractual agreement.

Note to students: If you have conflicting examinations or three or more examinations in one day, your instructor can make individual arrangement for an alternative test time.

Note to faculty: If the system assigns the same exam time for two of your day classes, please contact Class Scheduling & Curriculum at (801) 422-0999. For evening classes, contact Evening Classes at (801) 422-2873.

Salt Lake Center Final Exams
Final exams for BYU Salt Lake Center classes are held at the regular class time for each class during the final exam period unless scheduled by the instructor in the BYU Salt Lake Testing Center. (Final exams will be moved to Saturday during winter semester for Thursday classes to avoid conflict with graduation exercises and during fall semester with Friday classes to avoid conflict with an exam preparation day.) Should a conflict arise between the exam schedule of a Provo and a Salt Lake Center final exam, it is the responsibility of the student to talk with the instructor as soon as possible to make other arrangements at the Salt Lake Center.

Schedule

Final examinations will be given at the times shown in the schedule below. Click on the corresponding semester link below for the final exam schedule.

If a class begins after the hour or is scheduled for more than fifty minutes per class period, the final exam period is determined by the beginning hour. For example, a class held from 8:35 to 9:50 must use the 8:00 exam period. A class held from 4:45 to 7:15 must use the 4:00 exam period.

All evening classes (those beginning at 4:00 p.m. or later) must follow the evening exam schedule to avoid day class conflicts.
