Final Examination Information

Final examination week will begin Wednesday, December 2, and conclude on Tuesday, December 8. The Monday and Tuesday prior to the start of final exam week have been designated ‘study days’ and no examinations may be scheduled on a study day.

Final Exam Week Schedule

  • Final exam schedule for all campuses. Group Exams apply to only Oxford classes.
  • Final examination meeting times are based on the Standard Timeblock Model.
  • Not all classes meet the exact times of the standard timeblock; a class with a start time that is after, but falls within the designated timeblock for corresponding days should use that scheduled exam time and room for the final examination.
  • Fall 2020 – All final exams will be administered remotely
  • Group final examinations are available only to those departments who requested them (and were approved) through Associate Provost Wanko in response to his outreach.
  • Determining Final Exam Date and Time
    • Face-To-Face - If the class is a lecture only or a combination of lecture/lab/discussion, use the exam time which corresponds to the first day and time the lecture portion meets.
    • Online - Fully Asynchronous – Final exam must be asynchronous and made available for the period of W/R/F (72 hours) or M/T (48 hours) of final exam week. The instructor will select from the two timeblocks and must indicate their selected exam timeblock on the course syllabus. The timeblock selection will not be recorded in Banner nor listed on the course schedule in BannerWeb or on the Miami Course List.
    • Online - Fully Synchronous - The final exam is assigned based on the date and time of the primary meeting pattern.
    • Online - Blend of Asynchronous and Synchronous - The final exam is assigned based on the day and time of the synchronous meeting pattern.
    • Hybrid - with Synchronous Online Component - The final exam is assigned based on the day and time of the primary meeting pattern (can be either in person or Online pattern).
    • Hybrid - with Asynchronous Online Component - The final exam is assigned based on the day and time of the in person meeting pattern.

University Policy

Visit the University Policy Library for complete information on final exams.

Graduate Level Final Examinations

Final examinations or other evaluative substitute procedures for Graduate 6xx, 7xx level classes, are given at the discretion of the faculty/department. All 4xx/5xx level classes will follow the undergraduate regulations.

Conflicts & Excessive Final Examinations

A Conflict occurs when a student has two or more final examinations scheduled at the same time. For instances of conflicts, adjustments are made according to this schedule, regardless of campus:

  • For fall semester the course section whose subject three-letter abbreviation is nearest the beginning of the alphabet is adjusted.
  • For spring semester the course section whose subject three-letter abbreviation is nearest the end of the alphabet is adjusted.
  • If both courses are within the same department, the higher course number is adjusted.

If the conflict is a result of one course instructor changing their final examination day/time, the instructor who changed their day/time must work out conflicts their students encounter.

Excessive Final Examinations 

For instances of excessive final examinations, adjustments are made according to this schedule, regardless of campus:

  • For fall semester the course section whose subject three-letter abbreviation is nearest the beginning of the alphabet is adjusted.
  • For spring semester the course section whose subject three-letter abbreviation is nearest the end of the alphabet is adjusted.
  • If both courses are within the same department, the higher course number is adjusted.

Note: Students who meet the criteria for a conflict or excessive exams must contact the instructor whose examination would move no less than three weeks before final examination week begins.
