Policy 601.1

Scheduling of Evening Examinations
(Proposal 7-94)

Senate Policy 601.1

Regular exams are exams and quizzes that are not defined as final examinations. Evening
exams are regular exams held outside of scheduled class times, usually after 6 p.m.

Regular exams should be given during scheduled class meeting times when possible. Students
required to take an evening exam shall be excused from one scheduled class.

Evening examinations must be arranged through the scheduling office to avoid conflicts and to
allow effective use of University resources. Evening exams should be scheduled for 6-7 p.m.,
Monday-Thursday. The University shall not schedule classes for this time period.

Faculty scheduling evening exams must provide alternative examination times for students with
the following conflicts:

  1. In the case of two conflicting evening exams (inside or outside the 6-7 p.m. period), the
    larger class has priority.
  2. In the case of an evening exam conflicting with a regularly scheduled class, the class has
    priority over the exam.

Regular exams shall not be given on Friday evenings, nor on Saturday or Sunday.
