Final Exam Policy
FINAL EXAMS POLICY
- Students may drop classes with instructor permission up to five days prior to the beginning of finals.
- During the regular semesters, the three class days prior to the beginning of finals are considered "dead days" in that no graded assignments or activities are to be scheduled. Extracurricular events (other than unscheduled league play-off events) and required field trips are prohibited. Attendance policies will remain in force.
- If students feel that the dead days policy is not being followed, students should speak with the faculty. If no resolution is reached, students should contact the department chair and ask for their help. If that route is unsuccessful, students should speak with the dean of their college.
- Departments/Academic Units will schedule room assignments for final exams through the office of the Vice President for Administration & Finance.
- Exams for single classes must follow the schedule.
- Multi-section exams scheduled by an instructor must have the approval of the Vice President for Student Affairs for both time and room space. These are scheduled on a first-come, first-serve basis.
- Multi-section exams must be approved one week before the first final exam (Monday, April 23, 5 p.m.,) and classes notified of the schedule.
- In case of conflict between single sections and multi-sections, the single section takes precedence for the student's time.
- Occasionally, the final exam schedule results in a student having more than three exams on any given day. Students may seek assistance in alleviating this excessive schedule from the Vice President for Student Affairs on the Weatherford campus or from the Dean at the Sayre campus.
- NO EARLY FINALS. Early finals are any final given prior to 8:30 a.m. on the Monday of finals week. (Lab finals are scheduled prior to finals week.)
- Students unable to meet the regular examination schedule will receive an "I" (Incomplete) and will have the next full semester in which they are enrolled to complete their work.
FACULTY: Please do not deviate from the final exam schedule. The Faculty Senate has made every effort to spread examinations as evenly as possible over the five-day period and has made provisions for examinations for multi-section courses. If you wish to give multi-section examinations at the designated periods, you may do so or you may follow the regular examination schedule.
During the fall and spring semesters, the three class days prior to the beginning of finals are considered dead days in that no graded assignments or activities are to be scheduled. Extracurricular events (other than unscheduled league play-off events) and required field trips are prohibited. Attendance policies will remain in force and classes will meet on the normal schedule. Dead days this semester are Wednesday through Friday, April 25-27.
The Registrar prefers that you turn in grades for classes as you complete them. All final grades must be submitted by 5:00 p.m., Monday, May 7, 2018.
