  • Final Exam Policy: A final examination schedule is published each semester by the Office of the Vice President for Instruction, and a preliminary copy is available on the Schedule of Classes web site each term. No time and date departures from the examination schedule should occur without prior approval of the dean of the school or college and the Vice President for Instruction. Similar advance approval also must be obtained to administer standardized, departmental “mass” examinations to groups of students enrolled in the same course. Although there are special courses where a final examination of the regular type may not be appropriate, each student must be provided the opportunity to stand for a final examination as part of the completion of a full instructional term. Each instructor has the authority to design and administer the final examination in whatever manner is appropriate. Additionally, the instructor has the authority to structure the course syllabus and content so that the final examination may be a summative evaluation of the entire term’s work or a portion of the term’s work.
  • Classes that do not follow a MWF or Tu/Th schedule: Classes meeting on days that differ from the customary MWF or Tu/Th schedule should schedule examinations based on the first class meeting day and hour of the week. For example, classes that meet M/Tu/W/Th should examine students based on the hour of the MWF class schedule; and classes that meet Tu/W/Th/F should examine students based on the hour of the Tu/Th class schedule.
  • Final Exam Schedule Conflicts: Upon the consent of the academic department, the individual faculty instructor has the authority to manage students who have personal conflicts with the final examination schedule. A student with three final examinations scheduled within the same calendar day or two examinations at the same time may petition to reschedule one exam to a different time or day. If one of the conflicting final examinations is a mass exam, then it will be rescheduled. The instructions for rescheduling are located at the following web sites: www.bulletin.uga.edu and www.curriculumsystems.uga.edu
  • Reading Days: These days have been designated by the University Council to provide time for students to prepare for final examinations. No mandatory assignments are to be scheduled for completion during reading days—either for course work or extra-curricular or co-curricular activities. Exceptions for good cause can be made to this policy by the Vice President for Instruction. Nothing in this policy limits an instructor from scheduling optional study reviews for students during reading days.
  • Final Instructional Day: No tests or quizzes are to be administered on the final instructional day of a course, unless the course has not been assigned a final examination time slot by the University. For purposes of this policy, student presentations to the class in a seminar or graduate course shall not be considered a test or a quiz.
